What the heck happened that made Zionsville Little League need to post a sign like this?

But this post is actually about printed words. It’s a mental quirk of mine, but I’m drawn to them. Signs of all kinds draw me in. I study the letterforms and the way the words are arranged. I consider the message; why was it written in the way it was?

It’s sometimes a problem. When I was dating my wife, the word GATHER was painted on the kitchen wall. I had to make myself not look at it, even though I’d studied it dozens of times. I was relieved when she repainted the kitchen and it disappeared.

I’m sure a psychologist would have a field day with this.

With a roll of expired Vericolor III in the Yashica-12, I drove over to Lions Park here in Zionsville and photographed one of the Little League fields. This is the best photo by far from that outing.

Thanks to Kodachromeguy for sending me this Vericolor to play with. I have more in the freezer for another day.
