abstemious \ab-STEE-mee-uhs\,

1. Sparing in eating and drinking; temperate; abstinent.
2. Sparingly used or consumed; used with temperance or moderation.
3. Marked by or spent in abstinence.

This was a very happenstance word of the day photo. I was headed down to Clayton to pick up a trampoline from a Cragislist post (more on that pending photo project later), and I came across this former strip club parking lot.

The building had been gone for a long time, it seems, but there was a truck in the parking lot when I went by the first time. The trucker seemed disappointed.

After a few minutes taking photos, someone from a neighboring lot came by to see what I was doing. He seemed confused when I explained I was only in the empty lot to take a picture of abstinence. But he just shrugged and let me go on my way.

I won't be posting again this weekend, as always, but if you've got any photos for abstemious, or anything else from throughout the week, send them along to me in an email!
