cheap lattes



























I was shocked to see these two billboards on glen cove road in carle place the other day. I don't think I've ever seen any on long island except for the ones I've glimpsed while speeding towards the tunnel into manhattan. then again maybe I just don't ordinarily notice them.

I don't notice billboards around here either. Now I wonder if there are any.

I'm like James, I don't notice billboards here in Seattle, in fact, I don't even remember the last time I saw one. They're here, just not many in the area where I live. Hope you have a great week, Lily!

Interesting. They look so different to the ones I see here.

We have so many billboards in Southern California that I don't really see them half the time. The one on the left here could use a little attention. :)

And my question is...how can you make a Latte look unattractive? Somehow they have done it.

Interesting - we don´t have any bill boards here.

Every now and then I spot some sign I could swear hadn't been there the day before, but obviously had. That's a cheap latte....but I'd have one, along with a sugar doughnut.

I was travelling along a country road just last weekend and was saddened to see the view spoiled by billboards. I HATE them!

The billboard on the left is confusing, but the 99c latte I can go for.

No billboards on Long Island? Good.

Wonderful photo.

«Louis» wonders how big and how good a 99¢ latte could be....

Now you have me thinking. I don't remember if I aw billboards on LI. Maybe our brains just block them out because we don't want the scenery to be spoiled.
