Clearwater, Florida: Contracting Company Reminder Sign: Best Practices!
In industrial or manufacturing facilities, they would call this a Best Practice. Best Practices are those that take the company to a higher level of productivity, safety, reliability, etc.

To the rest of us, it's just a plain good idea. Common sense you might say, but how many companies can you think of that dispatch fleets of workers each day without any such reminders? Come to think of it... I might want to put a similar sign just outside my front door! :D

Clearwater, Florida: Volleyball & Hooters... HOO KNEW?
I just had to post this one more picture of the volleyball courts. Why? Because I noticed the sponsor banners all over the front of the office trailer. Who? HOOTERS! I mean, c'mon... volleyball and Hooters... who would've thunk it!?!

(Click on the Hooters link if you are scratching your head, wondering what I am talking about.)

Clearwater, Florida: Volleyball Courts But No Beach!

Clearwater, Florida: Volleyball Courts But No Beach! Club V
I really didn't believe it the first time I saw this. Driving north on US Hwy 19, in the middle of an area that is pretty much industrial, I spotted these volleyball courts. Double take! There is no beach nearby, believe me. So I went back to take a look.

Sure enough, someone had the cool idea to make beach style, sand covered, volleyball courts right off a major north-south highway in Clearwater. Wow. This is the Club V Beach Volleyball Complex. Who knew?

Clearwater, Florida: Victoria's Pottery Supports Clearwater Daily Photo

Clearwater, Florida: Victoria's Pottery Supports Clearwater Daily Photo
I am proud to introduce Victoria's Pottery as a welcome supporter of Clearwater Daily Photo. I first wrote about Victoria's Pottery back in early March this year. It's really a neat place to visit for so many reasons. They have ALL kinds of Mexican pottery: Talavera pottery, like the alligator above, as well as Mayan and Aztec designs, like an Aztec Calendar wall hanging, and lizards, turtles, cats, frogs, and more in ceramic. Not to mention TONS of different sizes, shapes and styles of pots.

Then, as you are wandering around thinking how nice and cool it is under the Tiki Huts, you suddenly realize... they have TIKI HUTS! Yes, for sale! Some that are ready to be delivered, others that can be custom designed and built on site! How cool is that? VERY COOL!

It goes on and on, the list of the neat things they have, and how much fun it is to wander around the place, checking out all the different things that you would love to take home! So please, click on the link to the right, and check out their advertisement. It's fun to see what they have, and it shows them you appreciate their support for Clearwater Daily Photo. If you don't see their ad link to the right, just click here. Thanks!

Clearwater, Florida: Cellular Communications Tower
Silent guardians of our modern telecommunications world. Cellular towers make our cellular phone lives possible... but what else are they doing? Are they listening?

Clearwater, Florida: US Highway 19 Overpass Shell Design 2

Clearwater, Florida: US Highway 19 Overpass Shell Design 2
It's a bit of a monster, this new overpass on US Highway 19 in Clearwater. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy the heck out of it when I am whizzing south and getting where I want to be in less than half the time it used to take. But, I know it has been hard on the businesses that have been obscured by this new monstrosity. There are several of these new overpasses, in fact, all with this neat seashell motif going on. I like it.

It's progress, of a sort, and it's not always fair to everyone. So I try to keep those other businesses in mind. Actually, it is sometimes amazing what you find when you keep an eye on the side roads and exits. More on that another day. :D

Clearwater, Florida: Clearwater High School Mystery

Click for larger picture in a new window
Clearwater, Florida: Clearwater High School Mystery Secret
Even as I stood there taking this picture, on the sidewalk next to Clearwater High School (Home of the Tornadoes), I found myself puzzled by this strange conglomeration of concrete, sculpture, and brick near the student drop off/pickup. It just doesn't look right, does it? Surely the architects didn't plan it this way, did they?

The architects named on the monument are Wm. B. Ittner and A. Leo Elliott. Although I could find some general information about their careers online, I could not find anything about their role in the design or construction of Clearwater High School.

But it finally occurred to me tonight... IT'S A TIME CAPSULE!! No, I don't know that for sure... but that is my sneaking suspicion. I mean, look at it! It just makes sense... the strange box-like base to hold up what? The seemingly orphaned monuments on top that seem to have no purpose, other than to justify the base. Searching the internet has not produced any revealing documents to that effect though. So, maybe it isn't... but what if it is? Think about it, 82 years ago... think about it...
