Face It!

Wow, it only takes a little to show a lot. 

The brilliance of capturing the essence while leaving out the extraneous. 

A person is clearly there even though it's just his face. 

What is hidden is also revealed. 

Absence makes the heart grow fonder. 

Yet, I don't miss him, because he's right there.

It looks like he's about to say something!  ;-)

Nice Accents

Cool black Jeep with red accents. 

Subtle but not. 

What does it take to pimp a ride?

Red accents are a start. 

You still need some real fancy tires.

And don't forget the premium upgrade package! 

Otherwise, the ride is just a ride. ;-)

Shoes That Go With Everything

Ok, so these are shoes that go with everything

They got color, the got height, and they got pizazz! 

But can you walk in them and not fall on your face?

Only the graceful survive!  ;-)

Street Art Wow

Some street art just makes you stop and say wow!

This mural on the side of a building in Philadelphia is just amazing. 

It takes a regular street (even next to an abandoned lot) and makes it eye-popping. 

Some people seem to walk by and not even notice. 

I'm not sure how. ;-)

Hand Pointer

That's a cool way to point something out. 

Sort of unexpected sticking out of the wall like that. 

But effective use of visualization. 

The floating hand. ;-)

Long Nails

Ran into this lady in South Florida. 

Couldn't help but notice the nails. 

She told me she's been growing them like this for 29 years!

I asked if she had any difficulty typing, driving, or anything. 

And she told me she does everything with them.

No, I don't think that I want to touch these things. 

I'm only getting as close as the camera. ;-)

This Is What You Smell

Great sign at the nut stand at Sugarloaf Festival.
"This Is What You Smell!"

Hot cinnamon pecans or almonds. 

Wow, did that smell nice.

I got a tiny bag of the pecans, and when I opened it, the smell and taste that hot cinnamon really took over. 

Were there other smells present as well?

Probably, but I chose to focus on the cinnamon nuts. 

The other smells will have to wait for their special sign and appropriate attention to deal with it. ;-)

Beautiful Teapot (Just For Looking)

Just wanted to share this really beautiful yellow and flowered teapot. 

Love all the shapes--the pyramid base, the curly spout, the circular handle, and the little round ball at the top. 

Like most nice things, it's too beautiful to actually use. 

(Almost like a million outfits in my closet that I never wear, because I don't want to mess them up...)

This is where design trumps functions--and I would rather look at this and enjoy it as art more than drinking another cup of tea! ;-)

Anyone Have A Question About This Car?

Yeah, all I can say...
Anyone have a question about this car?

I am pretty sure this car is owned by Matthew Lesko, "The Question Mark Guy."

Lesko was in a number of commercials and infomercials about asking him how to get free information and grant money from the government. 

He dresses and drives in question marks, and I've seen him a number of times around town. Frankly, it's sort of hard to miss this guy!

His self promotion sort of makes you wonder, if you had to choose just one symbol to wear everywhere to represent you to the world--it could be a punctuation mark or anything else--what would that look like?  ;-)
