Pictures from the Road - Clinton Iowa

An early morning walk in downtown Clinton showed some interesting "ghost art".  Not the best conditions for photos, a gentle rain usually helps a lot.

The centerpiece was a very nice Wrigley's Spearmint ad.

Layers upon layers of signage.  Here my brother, an old sign painter himself, ponders the enigmatic messages.  It seems to be referring to buying tickets for something...

And on the south side of town we find a huge, golden dome.  It looks alien, other worldly.  It seems to be an Archer Daniels Midland plant where they make biodegradable plastics out of corn.  It looks creepy, and it was necessary to wipe out a neighborhood to build it, but in this economy it is good to have jobs.
