Couldn't wait to take him out for a spin. Had the PERFECT opportunity Friday when the Better Half and I spent the evening in Philly. Even better? It SNOWED. Even better yet? We were spending the night in the city so we didn't have to worry about driving in it. The stars were aligned for a perfect evening of fun, freezing fingers, and photo ops. I even brought along my fingerless mittens so I could push "James Deans" buttons in the near Arctic temps. God only knows the Better Half was glad I was pushing someone else's buttons besides his. As we strolled down Broad Street in center city, the snow beginning to fall upon us, my fingerless mittens ready for some action, I pulled out "James Dean" for my first photo and....wait for it....wait for it...FREAKIN' NADA. WTHeck (but I didn't say Heck). It seems I forgot to replace James' battery AND memory card. Like most rehab facilities, they had stripped him of his valuables upon admission. You would have thought he'd feel lighter sans innards!
What to do? FIRST, of course I blamed the Better Half. For no other reason than, well...I could. Then, I had to resort to basics. The I-Phone. You're KILLING me Smalls. Such perfectly beautiful conditions left in the hands of an I-phone. I should have earned a merit badge for operating under such primitive conditions and MAJOR duress (MINE, not the Better Half's). Truth be told, a couple glasses of wine helped. That might have been the Better Half's suggestion.
So I bring to you Scavenger Hunt Sunday, the I-phone edition. This week's prompts are: Lace, Bling, Wood, Fabric, and Fuzzy.
"Let Them Eat Cake"
"Bling in the Sky"
Mother Nature, like moi, loves her bling.
Wish the prompt was "1/9 of a photo should be of wood". Because I would have nailed that!!!!
Sure beats my $350 wedding dress. Not to mention my veil that I WON in a raffle. Let's just say I'd love a "re-do". Didn't realize it while shooting but...I see moi in there.
Let me just say that THIS was a most wonderful surprise. Shhhh, don't tell "James Dean" BUT...not sure I could have gotten a better photo. I did very little editing to this shot. It's very close to being straight out of the old I-phone.
FYI, "James Dean's" battery AND memory card are now in place. Lesson learned. Until I forget it or do something else that earns me another "Moron of the Year" nomination.
If you get the chance, check out Scavenger Hunt Sunday at "Ramblings and Photos". Have a great Sunday.
