They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot
With a pink hotel, a boutique
And a swinging hot spot
Don’t it always seem to go
That you don’t know what you’ve got
‘Till it’s gone
They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot
They took all the trees
And put them in a tree museum
And they charged all the people
A dollar and a half to see ’em
Don’t it always seem to go
That you don’t know what you’ve got
‘Till it’s gone
They paved paradise
And they put up a parking lot
Hey farmer farmer
Put away that D.D.T. now
Give me spots on my apples
But leave me the birds and the bees
Please
Don’t it always seem to go
That you don’t know what you’ve got
‘Till it’s gone
They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot
Joni Mitchell
I spent Sunday at Coney Island…I took a lot of pictures of many of the human made spectaculars.

4-11-13 Weekly Photo Challenge: (Once More With Feeling) Yellow

 
Nature rarer uses yellow
Than another hue;
Saves she all of that for sunsets,–
Prodigal of blue,Spending scarlet like a woman,
Yellow she affords
Only scantly and selectly,
Like a lover’s words.
 
As you know by now the “Weekly Photo Challenge was Color.  My two previous attempts are here and there.  Today I thought we would try yellow.  As Ms. Dickinson says, a few are from nature but most of these are not.
