Two For Two!

Two days in a row, woo-hoo!!!

How about some more photos?

This is what the world looks like over Santa's shoulder, every morning of the year - well, not Christmas, and he might miss 2 other days, but this is pretty much it.  Just to the right of the picture sits his cup of coffee.  This man has habit down to a fine art!

Eric with the new guitar his dad gave him for Christmas - it is absolutely gorgeous, stained wood, not painted, beautiful!


Yesterday I posted the picture of Eric's tattoo that was edited with Percolator - here's how it looks just regular.


Woo-hoo, our new vacuum cleaner, now we just need to practice with it, LOL!


Yep, it's a Kindle - it's on its way over the ocean to a very very dear friend of mine, waiting to hear that it has arrived safe and sound!


Scott and Aunt Vera gave David these cool Rolling Stones drinking glasses for Christmas - again edited with Percolator.


A week or so ago, Santa and I were exploring in downtown Kissimmee, and we ran into a vegetable market in a lovely park square.  There was a man playing this cello, quite nicely I might add.  I asked if I could take his picture, and he said he didn't want his picture taken, but that I was welcome to take a picture of the cello, which I obviously did.  We got to talking, and he told me how he likes to talk with people on a level playing field, equal to equal, and when a camera gets brought into the equation, things are no longer equal - the photographer is "above" the subject, and it takes away from the opportunity to communicate on the same level.  Interesting perspective.


This was just a regular picture of a bird of paradise flower, but run through the Photoshop Express app using the sketch feature.


This was taken on January 14 - Me, Scott, Aunt Vera and David.  We had just had a delicious lunch at Po Folks Restaurant in St. Pete.  The picture that the waitress took with their camera had the four of us standing closer together, but I still like this one.


After we left Scott and Aunt Vera's house, we were driving along Gulf Boulevard.  I got Santa to find a place to pull into so I could peek at the beach, and this is what I found - God in all his majesty!


There is a muster of peacocks in Aunt Vera's neighborhood with about 20 peacocks and peahens, including some juveniles.  They had some really funny stories to tell about them, including how they clean themselves by groveling in loose dirt!  This guy here was a big tease, he kept flipping his tail around but would not open it fully, probably did as soon as I left with my camera.


As part of cleaning out the garage, we brought in David's books, and brought this bookshelf in and put it in the corner of the living room where the Christmas tree was. But it needed a light of some sort there - and Aunt Vera gave me this gorgeous Tiffany-style lamp with hummingbirds in the glass as well as a hummingbird on top - and it's just perfect!


These were on sale at the restaurant where we ate in St. Pete - I remember them so well from my childhood all those thousands of years ago!


Santa and I got to see a Broadway touring production of Les Miserables on January 17th - it was glorious, magnificent, amazing - any superlative you can think of!  We took each other's picture beside the sign - if I'd been thinking, I would have posed us each on a different side of the sign and then stitched it together in Photoshop, but I was still stunned from the performance, not in photo editing mode, so this is as good as it gets.


A painting of Marilyn Monroe in a window in downtown Kissimmee.


This mural was painted on the side of a building, again in downtown Kissimmee.


Snapped this sign at the produce market we stumbled upon.  I'm fascinated by the concept represented by this sign - do they beat you with the basket?


Okay, well that's the highlights version of my best iPhone photos so far.  I'll have to get busy and take some more or else I'll fall off the blogging wagon, LOL!

Peace and love to everyone!
