Ten Pictures O' Whateva

So I've been having a fairly dull summer. I haven't travelled anywhere on either of my vacations, and nothing's happening with my writing, so basically, I've had nothing to blog about. I bring it up because, yeah -- it's my excuse for not updating.

I'm not usually a big meme guy, but I miss the whole blog scene, I'm a little light on content, and cool people like Mercedes and Matt Betts are doing this.

Here goes Whatevapic #1:

Le rules (as posted by Ms. Madison):

1) Post ten of any pictures currently on your hard drive that you think are self-expressive.
2) NO CAPTIONS!!! It must be like we’re speaking with images and we have to interpret your visual language just like we have to interpret your words.
3) They must ALREADY be on your hard drive – no googling or flickr! They have to have been saved to your folders sometime in the past. They must be something you’ve saved there because it resonated with you for some reason.
4) You do NOT have to answer any questions about any of your pictures if you don’t want to. You can make them as mysterious as you like. Or you can explain them away as much as you like.
(I'm not gonna be mysterious, and I'm not gonna offer lengthy and boring explanations. I'll just tell you flat out: my pictures come from my writing files. Research and things. Mostly collages.)

I can't participate...my pictures are way to boring! I bet I could a 1,000 photo collage, though, of my kids giving me the "Hurry up and take the picture, Mom," look.

Keri Mikulski said...

Wow.. Interesting pics.. :) I like the fish ones - scuba diving or snorkeling?? :)

P-p-p-pictures! They're just awesome. And it's good to see you back. :)

Anita -- Heh. I hereby challenge you to create a 1000 picture collage.

Keri -- Dunno. Its all kind of underwater fantasy stuff, I guess.

Mercedes -- Thanks, buddy. Good to be back. (Assuming I really am back)

Well, well. Bloggy McNoBlog has posted. God celebrated by knocking down all the trees in Fruitport.

We gotta get together and get our drink on. When you free?

Ooooh, cool eerie pics!
Yeah, mine would be mostly my kids. And rockstars. And my husband fishing.

I am partaking...100%. But, I'm gonna have to wait till tomorrow to make it happen.

Cool idea.

I'll give you mad props and all.

Blackbird -- God appears to have used Ravenna's trees as party favors also. Then he skipped rope with the miles of slack power line.

Kelly -- Check out today's (Wednesday's) post. Its all for you, girl.

KM -- Thanks for playing. You win the prize. But there's no prize. But I'm enjoying the prize I won on your blog.

Hi... Well, I posted some pics on my very small blog here. Not sure how self expressive they are but they are there!
