An Unusual POV 5: WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge

Self loves taking totally random shots. It might be said that her camera technique (if there even is one) is spontaneity!

Earlier this year, she was in Venice. The city is overwhelming. The whole experience of being there is overwhelming. Self found herself fascinated by little things, viewed mostly in close-up.

Gondolier, Venice, Italy.  Self took the picture from a bridge overlooking a canal.

Gondolier, Venice, Italy. Self had stopped at a bridge overlooking a canal.  She didn’t have to wait long for a gondola to pass beneath her!  April 2013

Stay tuned, dear blog readers.  Stay tuned.

While Watching “The X Factor” : Self Feels Like Becoming a Woman Who Runs With Scissors

Self has come to a new appreciation of Simon!

The 55-year-old woman looked so great in her short black slinky dress, but the minute she opened her mouth — GADZOOKS!  The other judges looked non-plused, but the most real response was Simon’s: He started to laugh! Which was exactly what self felt like doing!  Though she would be too polite to do it in public!  And then he said, and then he said (Simon, you are such a card!):  “S___, 80 dogs are now trying to get into the theater.”

How fab! His insults are the only true thing about “The X Factor”!

In closing, self saw this sign in Dona’s Hallmark in downtown San Carlos today:


And it is a good thing.  To.  Feel.  Dangerous.


Stay tuned.
