Lip Service

World! This is Safia, my grand-daughter, at exactly 3 months.

Yes, I know what you're thinking! I am tooo young to have children of children.

Lip Serice

Anyway, I want to think that she was looking at me with keen interest but I fear she was giving me the slip of her tongue.

Ah ... they start so early, don't they?

Aside Note: I have a great tip for you that I've learned the past many months since I've been back to the USA. If you want to improve your street photography, just photograph children.

They are quick, suffer from attention deficit disorder and unpredictable.

Your shoots will dramatically improve.

Want to make a little girl happy?!

Just buy her a new outfit.


Works ALMOST all the time.

Double Take

Oh ... so, it's another booth in a Barcelona market.

But, wait! Can you guess what makes these booths unique?

The lady on the left is the same lady on the right and they aren't even twins!

The image on the right is a silk screen shade.

Imagine that!

As Good As I'll Ever Get

Truly, I like everything about this photo.

The way her body fits snugly on the bench curved like the letter 'y'.

As Good As I'll Ever Get

As Good As I'll Ever Get

Her big greenish bag and clunky but terribly comfortable shoes.

The shadows and light drape her body like a comforting hug.

She reminds most of all of Helen Hunt's scene when Greg Kinnear began drawing again.

Ah, you know ... one of Jack Nicholson's famous movie!

Can you guess?

But, I am curious.

What do you think, overall?

I think they like me!

Well, it was early morning here, something that usually arrives on a daily basis every 24 hours.

Anyway, as I opened the French doors to greet the world, the world greeted me back in the form of 2 big green yellow eyes glaring at me.

Yes, it was another neighbor probably a friend of the same species I wrote in "The Cat Who Mistakes Me for a Rat".

It will be interesting to see what the morning brings.
