I have no idea what this is a photo of or where I took it. Well, that’s not entirely true. I have two ideas. As it comes from a file I have, labeled “Misc. 1986,” and is accompanied by other photos from Lowell, MA, and Damariscotta, ME, I suspect that it’s from a national or state park site (listing allowed and disallowed activities.) Boating and fishing, yes. Swimming and hunting, no. I understand why I took the picture: I like the iconography, the faded colors, the gridded repetition of shapes. (In a nod to St. Patrick's Day, I love the XXX label on the bottle, lower right.) But who knows where or when?
