Weekly Photo Challenge: Unusual. The 3/16 challenge is to post photo(s) that are in some way unusual. The photo below is of a simple red parking meter. The concept behind it is not one bit simple ~ it is beautiful and brilliant. These parking meters are scattered throughout pedestrian friendly shopping and restaurant areas in Tempe, AZ. These meter are to help the homeless who are often reduced to panhandling. The idea is that if you wish to help them, you put change into these meters. An organization distributes the money to those in need. It seems to work and be a big help. Pedestrians and motorists alike notice the meters and kindly put their money into the meters. The program is called “Give Change for Change”.
