Ah, Brunch

IMG_20160529_115707

That’s a basic Bloody Mary beside a grilled muenster with fresh tomatoes and slivered red onions on rye. Simple, straight-forward.  The photo is not very sharp because I’m just learning to use my cell phone camera. (I’m not really what you’d call an early adopter) I’ve not generally been one of those folks who Screenshot_2takes a lot of photos of my food–in part because I never had a smart phone until a few weeks ago, part because I don’t usually order food for its aesthetic appeal, and mostly because, really, who wants to be that guy taking pictures of his food? I may have been a little derisive about the whole trend. But it is kind of fun, isn’t it. It took me a while to see that, and given that I’ve recently made a promise to myself to be more playful and more embracing of the positive, I’m thinking: why the hell not take pictures of my food, my dog, my friends, my booze, the flowers in the yard, the cat with a chipmonk drooping in her mouth (good cat).

More on this later, as if reflects a slightly altered direction not only in my life, but in this blog.

2015 Summer Wonder #77: Jump Redux!!

I choked on Jump Week–I owe four “Jump-themed” found photos, so you’ll get ’em today through Wednesday and worry about what comes next after that. This is a good one, eh? I particularly like the furthest kid to the left, turned to face the camera and mugging unapologetically.

2015 Summer Wonders #71: Drive In

We’re fortunate to have a great drive-in theater in our town–show up early, back your car into the front row, and sit on blankets or lawn chairs while you feat from the trunk.

2015 Summer Wonder #28: Incoming!

Even more than all the pretty girls at the beach photos, summer photos of young people–or any people, to be honest–having fun are my favorite summer wonders: jumping off stuff, splashing stuff, throwing stuff–it’s all about the stuff, right?

2015 Summer Wonder #22 :Dancing In The Rain

Not my first rain post, nor my last–summer wonders are far more than happy people in the warm sun, pretty girls in bikinis, convertibles, surf boards, sailing boats etc.  Sometimes it rains, and when it rains one has a choice, if lucky, to run for cover or embrace the gift of it.  All the best mornings in my memories are rainy mornings when good fun is wrung from a disappointing beginning.
