2015 Summer Wonders #46

I try not to use photos from blogs I follow regularly for my Summer Wonders feature, because the odds are pretty good that some of you have also seen them, and part of the fun of Summer Wonders is sharing discoveries with you.  I’m making an exception today, for a photo I just saw, because it inspired me for yet another them week: this is Watermelon Week!  Thanks to Violeta Dyli over at Opinionista Per Caso for the inspiration.

Saturday Night Originals: Appalachian Sunburst 1985

So, it’s not Saturday. I know. I didn’t want to wait another week to get this series on track. I’m not a photographer, but I’ve taken a few dozen pictures over the years that I liked–some of them, like this one, are scans of ancient film shots. Enjoy the pretentious effects–I thought I was being pretty arty at the time.

Christmas Girls Lit

I normally try to wait a while–at least 6 hours, but often an entire day–between posts to, you know, let each post live and breathe a little before it gets pushed down the feed.  Not today.  That Luke Scott post, as quietly and unintentionally droll as I find it, is bugging the hell out of me.  I wasn’t even looking at it, happily going along with my day, but I couldn’t shake the little hissing voice in the back of my brain, reminding me that it’s there.  And like the little guy said, “We hates it, Precious.”

You’ve likely heard of buyer’s remorse.  This is writer’s remorse.  I will compensate with a slew of silly and provocative Christmas-themed images because I can, and because the ridicule I reap locally for such incursions beyond the realm of politeness make for excellent holiday party conversation fodder.  Girls lit up light Christmas trees: a little bit sexy, a little bit seasonal, and a fairly popular theme.
