Ah, those hoops make me nostalgic - not that I like them that much!

Brian Miller said...

hope no one is following the lines...

R.L. Bourges said...

Hoops, indeed!

Bet if someone added Pollock's signature to the second one...

Love the Camel from the Lost Caravan too. But my fave has got to be the pavement marking on the Nyack one - as in: splat! oops! bam! oops! crash! oops! whaaa...t day is this?

Have a nice, quiet, spillfree day, letty? maybe?

I love the tie in of the Heinz Hoops to the W(hoops) theme. Couldn't be more perfect.

Steve said...

That middle paint splotch looks like a man leading a camel.

Wings said...

Cool pics! And I agree wih Steve, I saw a camel in the pic, too!

Re the third photo: "'Tis very like a camel".

Makes me want to come cross a fresh one and improve it, although I guess that's not practical in the roadway.

Leah said...

These are wonderful.

And I saw a camel too! It's like a Rorschach.

Liza said...

I hope the first one wasn't your lunch. = )

Ronda Laveen said...

I like how the hoops on the sidewalk in the right top of the photo look like a smile. Fun take on theme.

Marianna said...

Hoops? We always had spaghetti O's...gosh they were dreadful!

Shammickite said...

R.L. beat me to it for the comment about the yellow camel.

Chick said...

I say...don't cry over spilled...anything.

Great photos!

Anna said...

Like the play with words. and very observant. Very clever, but what more should I expect. xx

The Silver Fox said...

Glad you didn't have a photo of a man or woman who'd had an "oops" on a high building, and then landed on the pavement...

And I, too, saw a man leading a camel.

Lynne said...

Enjoyed these very much letty! My favorite is the whoops hoops. Yummy ...

Hope all is going better now?

Akelamalu said...

The third whoops definitely looks like a headless camel!

I wonder what happened on the last one - I hope whoever was painting the line hadn't had a heart attack or something! :0

Absolute Vanilla (and Atyllah) said...

I love that second one - totally cool!
There's a little something for you over at my place :-)

mouse (aka kimy) said...

haha....

a different take on losing one's lunch! whoops! don't remember seeing those pasta hoops before.... they look just like the spaghettios....I can't believe how I actually craved them as a child, obviously the power of subversive advertising!

Anonymous said...

The hoops pic made me laugh. I do remember that last splodge, but the camel is quite nice! sneakers too.

Barbara said...

I love the Nyack shot that is a fairly permanent reminder that someone screwed up bigtime!

Gary said...

I have another whoops - whoops that I have been away from your blog for too long! I need to catch up now that I have some time.
