Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: SHAPES and DESIGNS

Patti is hosting the lens-artists photo challenge this week: SHAPES and DESIGNS. Self decided to focus on shapes. It took her a while to find shapes that were . . . uh . . . shapy. She’s not sure the last picture, of a sign at Pismo Beach, fits?

    Fun fact. I passed Pismo Beach on my (only) US trip back in… hm… You could still smoke on the plane. I remembered since “pismo” means a letter in Slovenian. A letter as such that we used to send. I wonder why it is called like this.

      Wow! I need to look up the history of the name. I wonder if “letter” in Slovenian means something else in Spanish. I assumed “pismo” was a Spanish word (since a lot of California place names are Spanish) but maybe it isn’t!

        I just looked! Nothing to do with us but rather with the native inhabitants. It seems pismo means tar a Chumashan language.

        Oooh, that’s REALLY interesting. TAR! I have been to Pismo many times, only now do I know the origin of the name! Thank you!
