Photos From My iPhonePosted: July 5, 2013
I’ve never been one to keep a camera around. Now, things have changed. My problem isn’t that I don’t have a camera when I need it. The problem is my phone getting filled with photos that I thought were important.
Yesterday I cleared out some of the pictures in my phone. Today, I’m taking you on a tour of the gallery of shots that I found. Some, I think I had intentions of writing about. Others were just taken to make sure I could confirm what I thought I’d seen. I’ll even show you a few that I have no explanation of.
I’ll Bet The Neighbors Were Impressed
The first photo in our tour of The Omawarisan Gallery Of Photographic Art is an example of a photograph taken to let me confirm what I thought I saw. In this photo, we see that someone planted a tall, tapering bush in their front yard. Unsatisfied with that landscaping effect, they added two round shrubs in front of it.
Does this look like a…, well, sort of a shrubbery version of… ummmmm, never mind. I don’t know how to politely say what that clearly looks like. Anyhow, the Omawarisan Gallery Of Photographic Art congratulates the Johnson family of Ball Street in Cockeysville, Maryland for their unique concept in topiary design.
You Have To Break A Few Eggs…
I’m part of a team that teaches a week-long class. One of the sections that I teach is about communication. I usually open the class by juggling, because, why not? Juggling and why not led to the other instructors pushing me to do more. I added egg juggling to my opening. A few sessions ago, another instructor got in to the fridge and decorated my eggs before class…
Even good jugglers drop things. I’m not a good juggler. This was staring at me for an hour and fifteen minutes of my class…
Rich In Postassium
Our next exhibit is a man in a banana suit. We’ll pause here. Any reflections on this work?
Before we move on, I will point this out to you
- If a picture has one person in it and their face is obscured, it always looks like that person did something wrong (this guy didn’t)
- If a picture has two or more people in it, everyone whose face is not obscured looks like they did something wrong.
Could’a Been A Contender. Well, Not Really
Right this way. I took this picture with the idea that I would write something about how important it is to have goals. Not all my ideas are good.
How Do You Spell Love?
This is another shot I took intending to write about it. It never got much beyond “do you know what a good way to show your daughter you love her is? Spelling her name correctly.”
Here is a bag of Chia seeds. The big promotional claim for these seeds are that they are the “superfood of the Aztecs”.
Just a quick survey of those of you on the tour today.
Come Back On Monday
Thank you to all of you for coming along on today’s tour of The Omawarisan Gallery Of Photographic Art’s first floor. If you’ll all gather at the top of the stair case I will meet you there on Monday. On Monday we’ll tour the spacious and well lit second floor of The Omawarisan Gallery.
The second floor is known for housing some of The Gallery’s more shocking exhibits. Did I hear one of you say “even more shocking than a topiary talliwacker? How is that possible, Oma?” Well, did I hear one of you say that?
If I did hear you say it, I would tell you that few things are more shocking than a topiary talliwacker. If those shocking things exist, we’ll see them here on Monday.
