I recently received the following photo and conversation documentation in an email from writer Jim Norton and photographer Becca Dilley of The Heavy Table, from when they were in New Ulm, Minnesota:
JIM: Oh! Oh we have to stop the car and get a photo of that sign!
BECCA: What? What sign? Where? Why?
JIM: The South 12th St. sign, pull over.
BECCA: It’s 98 degrees out. Why are we doing this?
JIM: I think Andy Sturdevant puts them on his blog. South 12th.
BECCA: So we’re really doing this.
JIM: Yeah, just park wherever. [gets out of car, runs across street]
BECCA: What are you doing?
JIM: Get over here, this is great. Shoot it from this angle. It looks great.
BECCA: It’s a street sign. It’s 98 degrees out. [click] Let’s go.
JIM: OK, let’s go to the Schell’s Brewery now!
