As we were crossing a street I spotted this art on the side of some kind of utility box. I told my wife: “Hey, look, they painted a toothless pike! Wow!” To which she responded that I must have had too many beers at the bar we just left. Of course, it is not a pike, but that that was the first thing I imagined when I saw it, as it reminded me of some Russian fairly tale children books, where pike was one of the main characters.
We both felt that it deserve a photo, thankfully I had my camera with me, already on a tripod.
Any one seen it and remember where it is? As always, I’ll update the post sometime this weekend with location and anyone who got it right.
Saturday Update: This one was a hard one guys. This week no one identified that you can see this art in the down town of Coeur d’Alene in Idaho. I’ll try to find something a bit easier and more known for next Friday.
I have never seen long sprinkler systems on the East coast, maybe because I never paid attention or maybe because we really do not have these at the East coast farmer fields, not sure. But I saw many of them in Montana, Idaho and eastern Washington states. They really are not that interesting when water is not running and even when water is running they don’t look any special, unless of course it is early morning and you happen to drive at the angle that makes the water stand out and you can see every drop of it coming from the sprinkler. Then they look kind of magical, well, at least they did to me. We drove by many of them and I could never stop and take a shot, until we had an opportunity in Idaho to pull off the highway and take this shot.
and, yeah, as most photos, to see the details you have to see it in higher resolution.
Coeur d’Alene is a cool town on the north side of the Coeur d’Alene Lake in Idaho. We stayed there for couple nights and had good walks along the Spokane river. The building on the right is their main resort, a bit shmancy fancy place with shmancy fancy dressed up guests. We didn’t stay at it, but walked through couple times and even thought about taking a boat tour on the lake, but thankfully decided against it, as it was super hot and would be very unpleasant on the lake, expensive and food didn’t sound that good.
