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

Peter

Yes, it's the only way to fly. Bailey said in an interview that if he was going to plan ahead, then he'd get somebody else to make the shot. I see what he meant. Pleasant surprises are what I think keeps us all doing this. The day it becomes mechanical is the day we have to lose interest or become mere machines.

I agree completely.
Without surprises there'd be nothing to shoot (except maybe with a gun.)

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!

My pal Susan snapped this pic, and did the main processing in Affinity Photo too, just before I attempted some after-dinner guitar noodling. She likes jazzy stuff so as usual I bluffed as best I could: lotsa maj7 chords & such.  ;D  The guitar is an Ibanez AS50, a model made for a short time in the early 1980s. Amazing Maxon "Super 58" pickups, made only during the same time. Both guitar and pickups are prized by in-the-know jazzers. I got this one from such a fellow…he had two of 'em and let me pick the one I liked best.

Does she love you, really love you
Is she just stringin' you along...
Is the magic in the dinner 
Or is it only in that song?

Very confrontational, for Christmas, that is...

Not really, Peter, she never listens to a thing I say and never, never looks at the Internet!

On the other hand, she gets really pissed off when I split infinitives, just as I did when I posted her image; no knowing what she'd do if she felt associated with something like that!

Eric, you know me very well; of course I can't abandon her - well, not right now, at any rate.

Regarding my other little friend, the one with four legs: I think we have been spied upon, because when I wandered down the road to feed her her carrots today, I realised somebody had put a second wire above the original electrical one, and she wouldn't reach over to take the things from my palm. I thought that a bit harsh - we have been very well-behaved and no liberties taken either way. But there you are - I must respect her boss's wishes and throw the things into the field instead of doing it the friendly way.

So much for the New Year - foiled already!

When it comes to the Bardot era Susan prefers Scandinavians: Anita Ekberg, Bibi Andersson and so on. Might be a subconscious ancestry bias thing as she claims not to care a bit about where her grandparents were born.

Aha! Norwegian Wood!?

Regarding famous women of the era: I was surprised to see BB could actually sing a song! I had always imagined her to be far too busy doing other things.

Carla Bruni also sings and accompanies herself on guitar; either of them, in their time, singing me a song of my choosing could have been more than pleasant, especially had I a camera to hand. Anything for my art!

Something completely different, and my favourite version of this number:

Cellphone pano. When I try to get the same thing from the "regular" camera shots I have multiple stitching errors (in LR and Photoshop), go figure.

PS. I think the quality on this one is probably good enough for a pano print 10-13" high

I tried a handful of stitched panos, mostly with my iPhone, on my recent holiday but none of 'em really panned out. (Sorry…) This one was with my little Panasonic GX8 and an Olympus 12/2 lens, processed in Affinity Photo. The software did its job very well.
