She came in through the bathroom window
Protected by a silver spoon...
And though she tried her best to help me
She could steal but she could not rob

Ah, those Beatles...

John, that's like an X-Ray of my feet, complete with ice.

Funny how badly one feels the cold out here in the Med; it isn't really that cold, statistically speaking, but it certainly is when you bring in dampness and wind chill and non-existent building insulation.

;-(

Rob
It looks grisly to me. Like something about to rise and break free from its icy surroundings.

So I must lighten the mood and introduce my playful frog.

When I reached drinking age (1978) for a time there was a store in my neighborhood that sold bottled Heineken imported "direct from Amsterdam," or so they claimed. It was certainly different than the domestically brewed version we could also get, though I no longer remember if I thought it was better.

I wonder if they'd know that the whisky brand ran ads and posters telling us all that you could take a white horse anywhere?
Rob

True, you can take a white horse anywhere...but that never guaranteed he'll be served!!

He would be if he offered to buy a round for the whole bar, though: the other customers would insist.

On the other hand, if he were a she, who knows how many would try to serve.

Strange old world...

I couldn't resist re-configuring one of the Cynthia & Damien & Red Lipstick photos in B&W...

I think it works very well this way; she really, really gets into it, doesn't she? Would enjoy trying a few shots with her - the face promises many expressions. And she appears devoid of shyness. Which is cool.

Why not? Pulcinella can be very melancholic

In this case, I know for a fact: this bird is English. She was a gift to my step-father from Pilkington Glass, a company with which he had been associated in his career...

Sorry, but unlike Sophia, not a trace of pasta in this one's boobs!

To those of you who liked the shot, thank you very much!

In a way, it was a mistake: the light was typical Mallorcan winter, bright between clouds, just as landscape shooters have to contend with - or perhaps pray for? - and I thought I was on a 35mm optic which would have been bad enough, because by choice I'd have gone to the 105mm, but once I started I realised the damned thing was my 24mm, but I didn't want to miss the chance by digging out the boxes and changing lenses around. Lucky mistake, then!

I find often things that are not planned are great surprises...in my experience, however, not tax preparation.
