Hit and miss.

Miss: In the hopes of getting some good bird photo’s I purchased a bird feeder and hung it on my back deck. This prop of choice has the birds in a frenzy when I’m not in the vicinity, but as soon as I’m sitting in the wings (no pun intended) those buggers are off. Not to be daunted I tried again with a nice ornate bird bath, surly this would work? But no, those ungrateful little bastards don’t even use it, so now it has become a water feature that I drop flowers and petals in to!

Hit: There are a lot of ugly helmets out there in the windsurfing world, but not this one. Gramps clearly didn’t want his street cred of style and sophistication to be diminished on the water. A classic winning silver accessory will catch the ladies eye every time.

Miss: “Best photo of a hot guy”....that’s the little monthly contest we have at work. The esteemed prize is the respect of ones co-workers for your good taste and balls to take the shot!
Easy yes.....NO! Agggghhhh-here’s the thing, I know a LOT of hot guys but I’m too embarrassed to either sneak a photo of them or blatantly ask out right if they’d say ‘cheese’. So far this month this is my entry, hot guy-poor shot. The best part is the bloke in the background with his bottom lip out, that about sums up how I feel about being such a wimp in my own contest!


Hit: Who wouldn’t want to rest their paws here, even if it is on naff plastic chairs.

Lano: Nice conjecture! Long haired dude is Benjamin, the guy who took those great shots of GP from the water. I’ll have the Itai let him know you think he needs a ‘make over’!

Anon: And your point is……….?!

I have come to the conclusion that we raised a genius who, unbeknownst to us, was going to become a brilliant blog titler!
Your titles are as good as your pictures. I'm not sure I would rate your Hot Guy as "hot" - with his glasses in his mouth he immediately reminded me of Popeye with his pipe.
Don't be fooled birds are not idiots and their incredible awareness is not just applicable to Mauian birds - our Leeds sods have the same capability of escaping the lens as well. As for the squirrels and foxes, well, I'm, for once, left speechless.

Anxious in Leeds x

FYI: If you'd like the birdies to land in the bird bath put a brick or large stone in the middle and that will help! They need to know nothing is hiding in the deep end! :) Smart little buggars actually!

Sharon,
Anon is so cute thinking that you can't look at men half your age. I'm sure he never looks at women half his!

Sharon said...

Mater: Fret not, me thinks you’ve been reading way too many mystery novels!

Ely: OMG- I should I have stayed on dry land Sunday or what?!

Anon: Great tip-I’ll give it a whirl.

Gems: Touche, spoken like a truly over ogled bartender!

Never mind the guy, you completely screwed up the photo of the hot camera and lens - ye gods woman, get a grip!!!!! Don't you remember posting size matters????

I have no idea if the last Anon is your brother but the anxiety about seeing the camera and lens etc. is so Paleyish. It could almost be Tone chastising you from above :-)
