Spotted: End of a banner era?
A little over a year ago, InMenlo was founded, by a crew who weren’t exactly sure what the site should be. At first, we frequently just snapped pictures of things that caught our fancy (hence our Drive-by Photography category). We were often amused by the colorful flags that hung outside a home on Olive Street at the junction with Oak Avenue, which flags rotated as the seasons and holidays came and went. A number of other local homes also observe this charming custom.
Today the roving InMenlo photographer passed by, only to discover a yard sale in progress and the flags on sale for a very reasonable price. We can only hope the sale will make room for a new batch of the fun, colorful banners.

I’m a neighbor who enjoys the flags too…the owner told me she was getting new ones to replace these…not sure if she was serious (was doing a drive by), but we’ll see…
