Wednesday on Sixth Street



A short block, between Ohio St. and Illinois St. (these are, by the way, all names of states in the US). The usual car/tire related shop, another flower shop and a music
store. New in this block a carneceria (which sells meat). Two billboards, one for MacDonalds says "Despierta contenta" with an illustration of breakfast food (Wake up happy!) and another for a gun show at the Tucson Exposition Center. A wash (dry creek bed) at the end of the block.




The sign says "Meat for roasting" and underneath, "We roast your meat for free" (carne asada is popular here) and on the right side, "camaron" is shrimp. I don't know what "marqueta" means in relation to shrimp. Would be glad to be corrected by any Spanish speakers.

A very "busy" street with lots going on! I couldn't find "marqueta" in my pocket Spanish dictionary. If you find out, post it because I'm curious!!

In my Spanish-English dictionary it says a block or lump.

Beautiful photograph of the dry creek bed with the pink bar in the front and the soft image in the back PlUS the sketchy wires echoing the line of the bar.

I can't figure out what the top photo is. Please enlighten.

Kate I couldn't even find my Spanish dictionary! An online dictionary translated "marqueta" as "marqueta". Ha. So its like Shorty says, some kind of block of shrimp.

Mary, thanks. I'm beginning to really like to photograph things like that, the unremarkable that has a life of its own. The top photo is the front window of Blanca's Flower shop. The pattern is from wrought iron security grates protecting the windows. I just liked the patterns :-).
