Patterns no flash

I liked the patterns in this composition, and I didn’t want to use a flash, hence the wildly grainy image. I’m trying to read “better” literature; the book is the library’s “The Lost Weekend” (1944) by Charles R. Jackson. And, yes, if you have a long memory, it was made into a movie in 1945, directed by Billy Wilder, and starring Ray Milland, who won an Academy Award for his portrayal of the alcoholic Don Birnam. The film won Best Director, Best Picture, and Best Screenplay, too.

Returning from an errand, I waited to turn left, third in line. I watched the heavy, metal, left-turn sign hanging from the cable above flip one-third of the way up in the wind. And swing.

I was very glad I was not stopped below the cable and the sign, and I did eye the sign more than the light as I waited.
