Fan Club

Don't Lose Your Cool On This Street Corner

Photograph copyright: DAVID McMAHON


It was a hot, humid afternoon in Singapore when I spotted this huge rotating fan on a street corner. I zoomed in as close as I could, because it seemed to me that there was a security camera a few inches to the right of the fan. That's one way to keep cafe patrons cool in the open air, while ensuring their safety. And if you look carefully, you'll notice three different colours on the walls - pink, yellow and mustard. I guess you could say I'm a big fan of keeping cool.

the colors of the rest of the world always seem so much more vibrant than the colors we use here in the u.s. this photo feels so bright and happy.

I've never seen colors like that but it does get your attention and you have to like a big fan.

It was almost hot and humid in the Chicago area today, too. Well, 65f/18c. That's an average temperature for late April 'round here.

Nice colors!

Oh hey, Lime... I know it's not HNT, but I got a picture of me in my skivvies today. It's probably the closest I'll ever get to replicating your theme.

The fan is a wonderful thing for the patrons, but the colors of the building....that might cause someone to have a headache. LOL! Cool punicture!

Valarie said...

I think the fan would be a nice idea as long as the cups at the cafe are heavy duty and won't blow over :) but Ithe color choice would make me a tad queezy. To each his own...

The walls are the color of sherbet.
