Since purchasing my first cell phone with a camera a few years ago, I have developed a love for taking pictures. Now that I have a phone with a camera that’s better than my actual camera, it’s possible for the first time for me to capture people, places and things that might just be suitable for framing. I like to snap a quick shot of almost anything that strikes me as beautiful or memorable, but I also love those weird little things that cause me to pause long enough to look a second time. Things that are odd, out of place or just strike my fancy. I thought I would share some things I’ve captured recently.
There is no theme, no order, no sense to what appears or why. I just chose to show you a peek at the world as I see it. The subject matter is for the most part very mundane, but for one reason or another, all of these shots are memorable to me. Thanks for taking a look!
This adorable little clump, that looks more like the heart of an alien than something you would want to feed a shiny new husband, had one brief moment in the sun, while I contemplated whether or not to serve it for dinner. It had inadvertently been left out over night during the weekend when we obtained a new refrigerator. It never made it to the table. My darling husband was eternally grateful.
Here we have another awwwwwwww picture of my cute little puppy Daisy. She is really the Cheeky Diva of the house. Here she is, pining for what is on the other side of her cute little puppy fence. Even tiny princesses yearn for freedom.
When she pulls stunts like eating my wedding shoes, I should put her in “The Hole”, but how can I? Just look at that face!
It’s been a really hot and dry summer in Nebraska. My lawn looks pretty dreadful, depsite much watering.
But hey! It looks a hell of a lot better than my neighbor’s yard. Ha!
Creepy Eskimo on the back of a truck. Captured while driving to Omaha on I-80. There’s a terrific caption in there just bursting to be written, but I’ll be damned if I can get it out. I have to laugh at this picture every time I see it.
More I-80 fun. It’s good to know that two of our old favorites, Cage and Nolte are staying busy by keeping Nebraska rest areas clean and sanitary for weary travelers. Way to go guys! Thanks!
And yet another I-80 treasure. I was very tempted to submit this photo and the location it was taken to History Channel’s American Pickers. My husband had a suspicion that they have already been here.
This year, for our annual classic car extravaganza, Cruise Nite, Nebraska native Miss America 2011, Teresa Scanlan, stopped by to make an appearance. She’s the one in the middle.
This scene was a photo opp just waiting to happen. The poor Nissan Cube, waiting to be picked up. Hoping against hope that its owner comes before the lot closes. The Pontiac and the Buick are just waiting to beat the crap out of the nerdy little car.
That’s all for now, faithful followers, I am hoping to get a shot of the Oscar Mayer Wiener Mobile today as it makes it way through our sleepy hamlet. Woo hoo! The Hot Wheels version has been on my desk for as many years as I can remember. It was a gift from my kids. Vrooooom Vroooom!
