Wild Adventures in Photography, part 1


Disappointment, originally uploaded by Sabine Dukes.


Dog behind fence: ruff ruff ruff....ruff ruff

me: (click click.....click)

Dog behind fence: (more intently now) ruff ruff ruff....ruff ruff ruff ruff ruff....ruff ruff ruff ruff ruff....ruff ruff

me: (click click.....click)

Man behind fence: Roscoe! What's going on out there?

Man behind fence: (peering around fence) What's going on out here?

me: (pointing at knothole in fence) Oh, I'm sorry, I was just taking a picture of your fence.

Man peering around fence: My fence? Well that doesn't seem very interesting.

me: Its not (then trying to add levity to a tense encounter) but maybe if you had something interesting that showed through the peephole?

Man peering around fence: Is that your bike?

me: (hopeful that maybe he wants to put my bike in the peephole view, which is a little trite, but since when has trite stopped me) Yes, it is!

Man peering around fence: Then maybe you should ride it to somewhere more interesting and take pictures there.

A man after my own heart! I totally love him! I once told these nice folk with their kids to get lost when they came down my driveway a few months ago looking for ideas for their own home remodel. scott said i was mean. but he claimed was a kitchen contractor (um, why do you need to see my home then?) had a wife with kids that looked nothing like them... sort of clued me into them being a little whack. now if it was a cyclist that came by, well, come on in...grab some cookies and milk and wax on about your racing drama!

"kids that looked nothing like them" translation: could have been "rent a kids" for scoping out an easy hit... not being un PC about adoption or anything... it was a whack vibe. lets leave it at that...
