WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: Nostalgic

Must fly, dear ones!

Just came home from watching “Much Ado About Nothing” — fascinating, how different it is in feeling from Joss Whedon’s other work. But loved Amy Acker. And the idea of smooth-as-silk Sean Maher as villain.  Loved, too, the music.  And the trapeze artists in the garden.

Nathan Fillion completely steals the show during the last half, playing a dim-witted chief of security (Self still doesn’t know who/ why the bigshots were bigshots, why they needed all those bodyguards, etc.  But she really loved Whedon’s sly take on Shakesperean eavesdropping:  making the eavesdroppers agents, and using video surveillance to drive the point home.)

Well done, Joss.  Self hopes you tackle another Shakespeare adaptation, soon.  Preferably, with the same Whedonesques.

Shakespeare delivered in American twang — how very seductive.  And one more thing?  The costumes — especially Beatrice’s and Hero’s frilly summer frocks — were absolutely the best.

Now, self is on to her next event: dinner and bingo with a friend.  And she has to be out of the house in about 10 more minutes.

The WordPress theme of the week is “Nostalgic.” From The Weekly Photo Challenge prompt:  “Sometimes we long for the past, for moments we want to remember or recapture.”  Self will keep posting all week, on this theme.

And now for the photographs.  These were taken during visits to Dear Departed Dad’s hometown, Bacolod City, Negros Occidental, in the Philippines:
