Sometimes Mistah gets oh-so-bored with standard, representational photography -- you know, when the photo actually reflects what the subject looks like -- so he fiddles with the camera's settings. The results can be quite entertaining.
Remember these, from Scott's wedding?
Pretty cool, right?
As if dancing isn't fun enough . . .
As if the backyard isn't fun enough . . .
. . . it's a lot more fun with a stylized art project in place.
And the Westy? If even possible, she's even more fun now . . .
Sunflower? Fun. I feel like I'm in Arles.
And seriously. Ocean Beach. Look what Mistah does for his art.
We call this one Gam On. For obvious reasons.
And my personal favorite . . .
I am in Arles. Right here on my deck. Enjoying a glass of wine with Van Gogh himself. Nothing, I tell you, is more fun than that.
Once upon a glass or twelve of wine, Jacquie and Beth and Ellie got to talking. We decided that we were all enormously smart and clever and hilarious, and that it would be a crime not to share our unique talents with the world. We decided to start a blog together.
We needed a name, so Jacquie asked Beth: “What should we call a blog about meand you and Ellie?” And the rest, as they say, is history. We are having a blast writing this thing, and if there was any trepidation that we were only smart and clever and hilarious that night because of all the wine, our words here thus far have succinctly affirmed our mutual self-admiration.
