ABC WEDNESDAY LETTER " B "


ABC Wednesday is here again. Today's letter is " B ".
" B "
stands for Baggage. I saw this fascinating tower of "unclaimed" Baggage in
the Baggage Claim area of the Sacramento International Airport.
I think its a very clever way to cover some ugly pillars. There are all sorts of bags in this creation, everything from steamer trunks and golf clubs to trombone cases.
Go to Mrs. Nesbitts blog which can be found on my sidebar to see what others are posting for the letter B.
Be sure to enlarge this picture to see all the different bags on display.
Hubby and I will be gone for a few days so it will take me a while to get to all your B posts. Be patient I will visit.

What an amazing photo Sue. It looks like one of those amusing shots that circulate in e-mauls! - Dave

That is wild!

A very creative way to cover pillars, mark the baggage claim, and use all our lost luggage!

magiceye said...

Very original! That is such a great sculpture for an airport. ;-)

LOL...They might has well make fun of the fact that they lose so much luggage...

Hilary said...

Too funny. But yeah, "unclaimed" from clear across the world or continent still spells "lost." Wonderful, colourful shot.

That photo was fun! Have a nice abc:)

on dirait un sapin de noël fait avec des bagages, ou un mikado : si on retire un bagage en bas ;o))

it looks like a Christmas tree made with baggage, or mikado : if you remove a background in the bottom o))

Very clever way to put unclaimed bags to use. I just bought a new suitcase and would like to add my old one up there. I hope all these are held together somehow so they won't topple over on someone.

RuneE said...

I hoe nobody claims one in the middle!

Babooshka said...

An an unusual way to create an art sculpture form lost items. Great photo opportunity.

Carolina said...

Big smile!

What an interesting photo! Wow very interesting way to stack those bags. Don't want to be around if they fall though.

Thank you for sharing from the ABC Wed. Team

I've seen this display several times when I lived up north. We would fly out of Sacramento.

So that's what they do with it all.

Interesting and impressive.

MedaM said...

WOW, what an amazing shot! It is interesting the way all those bags were loaded up there! I am wondering how that “hill” of bags are kept from falling! This made me smile!
