I agree...

“To me, photography is an art of observation.
It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place…
I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and
everything to do with the way you see them”

I read this quote just the other day and felt it really summed up my feelings when it comes to photography. I like to get down and dirty and angle and twist myself into all sorts of pretzel poses to get a unique picture.

Please allow me to share some of the way I see things…

Please DO NOT COPY this image!

The picture above was taken looking up at a clear BLUE sky, while laying down on the GRAVEL (ouch!), underneath the back bumper of this beautiful and FABULOUS RED Thunderbird.

Please DO NOT COPY this image either!

This is a Dodge Charger 'Super Bee'...again from a rather unique angle...and with a rather unique title..."Charger Butts Drive Me Nutts" is what I call this one.  This is actually one of many that this gent owns...and I hope to this pic is only the first of many he allows me to take of his collection.  Oh and this one was taken sitting off center and behind the back bumper...I think I was able to get the grass stains out of my jeans on the third wash.

Please DO NOT COPY this image or else you will be 'SNIVELING'!

I can't help but think of a Hummer as a modern day version of the 'Sherman Tank' that The Captain (aka Dad) wished he could have bought my sis and I when we started to drive.  I know that I wish I could afford one for PixieChick (aka my daughter), although I don't think she would be able to see over the sterling wheel, even at 16 she is still a PIXIE

As for where I was to take this it isn't obvious?!

I just don't understand...

John Edwards? Tiger Woods? And now Jesse James? And that is only the last few months! And it is just a very small example, these are the ones ‘we’ know about…what about the many other’s whose names are not in the society papers.

Why can’t some men just keep their zippers up? Does a man really think about sex so much that the impulse can’t wait? Good grief, did they really think they wouldn’t get caught? Does one ever STOP and think…if I do this…what will happen? There is always the word, “NO!” Or how about not even putting yourself in that situation to begin with, what do I mean by this? No one-on-one situations with a woman that is NOT your wife/girl friend/significant other.

So in this case the men are not the only ones ‘guilty’, please like the women that fooled around with these men didn’t know they were already married. REALLY, had they been HIDING under a rock for the last 10-15 years?

And now each of them is trying to stretch their 15 minutes of fame out as long as they can. Seriously, one of Tiger’s many women wanted an apology from him, really lady? REALLY? YOU should be apologizing to the wife and two kids! And after cavorting with her daughter’s stuffed animals wearing just a men’s pressed shirt, in the pages of GQ, who is going to take Reille Hunter seriously now…at one time she was a documentary filmmaker.

I am offended that I share the same name with the gal that Jesse James messed around with, and SHAME ON HIM. My heart breaks for Sandra, especially after all the amazing things she has said recently about him…I think Jesse needs to change his name to “HEEL” or perhaps “IDIOT!”, yes I am thinking about worse names he should be called, but I am a Mom!

I seriously just don’t understand, and yet I have a few thoughts about perhaps why men choose this route, but I must save those for future rants. But right now, I pray for those women and children who were apparently not important enough to these men to have given them the strength to just turn and walk away! The women who are now wondering why themselves and are perhaps hurting very deeply, but who will tuck in their wonderful children tonight (Yes even Miss Sandra, as a step mother). Who will crawl into a HUGE bed and perhaps pile up the pillows so it isn’t SO big. Who someday, soon I pray, will realize that perhaps women are in fact the stronger of the sexes.

I know this is a ‘heavy’ topic for one of my first posts, but it is something that has just been nagging me and bouncing around in my head. I know that both men and women can be participants in infidelity, but it just seems lately there is an epidemic of men not being faithful and women who consciously mess around with men they know are married.

In the beginning...

In a fit of not being able to sleep I venture forth to finally create "MY BLOG" (cue Epic Music Soundtrack) and I have already confused myself with how to make my blog "me"(care of  Instructions For Blog Design) so please bear with my while I figure that one out. 

Until then, I will take a moment to read some one of your minds (Miss CW specifically) "It's about time Lady!"  Yup, my cellphone might be 2004 and my car might be 1997 but my random thoughts, adventures and someday soon photos are now in 2010...I am BLOGGING, or it is I am a BLOGGER, whichever it is...Look out world here I rant!
