No Parking - Latrobe Banana Split Festival

Well, I stopped by the "Banana Split Festival" in Latrobe, PA a weekend or two ago.  "What", you say.  Yes indeed.....the banana split was invented in Latrobe, PA in 1904 by David Evans Strickler at the now defunct Tassel Pharmacy.  It is well documented.  And, this being the 100th anniversary of the invention, there was, of course, a festival! Unfortunately, sometimes bank robbers don't respect a festival..... I was working nearby so I decided to stop and have a quick walk around with my 'carry with'  Olympus micro 4/3 camera.  I didn't take too many festival pictures, as not too much attracted me from a photographic standpoint.  But I did find this brick wall with sign and vine growth inexplicably interesting.  By the way, I did use a 25% opacity blended black and white layer on this image as described here.
