Civic Plaza

Most of Civic Plaza in Downtown Albuquerque is fenced off while they expand what looks like a kid killer play area. I’m not sure what the textured designs and bubbled bumps are supposed to be with their no slip, granular texture. I couldn’t get close enough to feel the surface, but it looks very rough; if it’s as rough as it looks, I believe kids will skin their palms, knees, elbows and faces when they land on the gritty surfaces sliding down the slides. Or when they trip, and fall. But then again, maybe it’s a high tech, very soft, no slip, granular surface?

Flag, Barf, Paper Towel

IMG_4728

This was a curious find in the garage stairwell this morning. Someone was conscientious enough to leave a warning flag below the barf to warn people there was barf two treads above the flag. The person also left a paper towel above the barf incase you were not paying attention (like looking at your phone or the trains through the window) and stepped in the barf, you could use the paper towel to wipe the barf off of your shoes. People are rarely so considerate, especially when it comes to barfing on the stairs in the parking structure, which is quite often. Restores a bit of faith in humanity.
