Girl with Guitar

This was a challenge to shoot.

It had been raining off and on, this day. From how dry the cement was under the white car, I figured the person must work at Long and McQuade.

I hung around anyway. Eventually, the red car moved.

Did my best without a direct on shot.

 

Here’s my fave girl with a guitar. I always thought this song was titled Mermaid Cafe. I also just realized, Joni plays a dulcimer in this song. Oh well!

The piece is unsigned, but the guitar is a Les Paul

Kool Kats

Hello! I’m your vocalist for the evening, and I am in the Koolest band, ever!

As you can see, the Kool Kats has an upright bass, singer, keyboardist, trumpeter, drummer and accordionist.  

Let’s have a hand for the band!

That’s our manager. Wish he’d quit smoking, but he thinks it’s kool, and he’s a kool kat, too!

4th Try was a Charm

I thought this was a well done piece, but there was a big ass vehicle parked.

I couldn’t get a straight on shot, and ended up with demented angles. Those are interesting, but I just wanted a straight on.

I tried everything… reflections…

Next time was even tighter between the vehicle, and the art.

Took pics of the cute motorbike. A Harley or BMW is a motorcycle.

The time after that, I was impressed with how close the vehicle was parked to the wall, without knocking off the rear view mirror.

Then it happened on my 4th time walking by.

There was an old, low car there, and I could take head on pics.

So loving the decals!

Lightening Eyes

When it is strikes close to home, lightening can be dangerous, terrifying.

Powerful enough for your heart to skip beats

Blinding

Numbing

Incongruous with the morning’s sunshine

… and we all know what comes after lightening

THUNDER

Every trick in the book,

All that he can find,

To make you laugh so hard you cry, and blow your mind,

Yet, just when you think you have his hysterical humour number down, he dazzles you with: a serious in depth book, movie, music, artist, video game or sports review!

I, the Queen of Hearts, hereby charge the esteemed editor of Professional MoronMr. Wapojif, (aka ‘Oron, so nicknamed by Resa & ‘Olly – ‘Ouse of ‘Eart)

with recipe crimes involving Marmite and Bovril!

Don’t let his charm and smooth talking ways make you pick any number, say a two,

He’ll always have an Ace up his sleeve!

You never know what you’ll find in an alley. Look, I found a paste-up of a promo shot of The Beach Boys taken in Manchester Sq. London, 1964, a mere 4 hours from Manchester U.K.

‘Oron, don’t go anywhere! In honour of this startling happening, ‘Olly has selected this Beach Boys song, especially for you.

I was out looking for a different mural, that I’d heard about.

The rose caught the corner of my eye.

It was on a side street, and “le gasp” when I saw the entire piece.

Needless to say I was sidetracked, and forgot about the other mural.

Interesting… one of the artists, I would say the face artist, is the same artist who painted Scheheraholly.

Strength to all!
