Sundays in the park with weaves

I passed this weave when I was running through Grand Center on Sunday, and, sure enough, it was still there Monday morning. Alert Reader and glove fanatic Emilee shot a couple of photographs to share.

Spotted in Strauss Park, at the corner of Grand and Washington.


Hairy park

Lucas Park (aka Hobo Park) downtown has been a disgustingly hairy mess lately. About two weeks passed between the first time I saw this mess and the night I photographed it.

Drag droppings

This isn't so much a weave as it is a clump of hair and feathers. But it still applies.

Found outside the Grey Fox Pub at Spring and Potomac.


Escapee weave

Alert Reader Brendan shares this weave he spotted at the University City recycling center. So majestic.

From the mailbag

In the coming weeks, I'll be sharing sone of the weaves that are ... ahem ... clogging my inbox. Like this one, spotted months ago in front of Lola, on 14th Street downtown, by Alert Reader and colleague Jackie.

Girl down!

Alert Reader Molly shares:
"We were driving down Compton Avenue and spotted this. It's an entire wig, bangs and all. It somehow slipped off someone's head, unnoticed, and fell there on the street."

Nordstrom Rack weave

They don't have discarded weaves at regular Nordstrom. Just Nordstrom Rack.


Here, kitty, kitty

As I was photographing this lovely specimen outside the Civil Courts Building downtown, a guy shouted from a passing car, "Is that my cat?!"

I poked it. It did not meow.


To the window, to the wall

Here's a weave I ran past on either Locust Street or Washington Avenue. There was so much discarded hair all over town over the weekend that it's all a blur.


Another Washington Avenue weave

As exciting as finding weaves is, it's such an inconvenience when they come along in the middle of my workout. I jogged wistfully past three before finally stopping to shoot this one yesterday at 20th and Washington.


Weave on a crack

This is the last of the WashAve weaves — for now. Also, the witty-commentary well has run dry.


Party crasher, panty snatcher

Found in the vicinity of weaves on Washington Avenue. I'm inclined to believe the two are related.

Something in red

Sometimes it's nice to enhance your wardrobe with a pop of color. But sometimes it isn't.

1901 Washington Avenue



Tardy for the party

I didn't realize this parking space was already occupied. Also in the vicinity were several tiny (empty) vodka bottles. Obviously, it was a splendid party.

On the 350 block of Boyle Avenue.

She loves a bargain

Whoa, has it really been eight months since my last post? Inexcusable. But here's hoping today's weave haul (too many, really, gals) is the jump-start I needed.

I was nearly knee deep in weaves on my jog downtown today. This one is from the 1900 block of Washington Avenue. Much more to come!
