Be it a mariachi’s guitar or a detail of my friend Larry’s guitar, I love the artistry of musical instruments. Then, I couldn’t resist adding photos of one of the guitars whose artistry I attempted to augment.
Please click on the first photo below to enlarge all photos and view as a slideshow.
Lake Taco and Car Wash is onto a good idea. As cars wait their turn to be washed, their owners can dine in the attached palapa restaurant. They had some good offerings for the main course and if the specials of the day, seen here, didn’t tickle our palates, we could always order off the menu. We balked, however, at the dessert:
The resident friendly cat rubbed up against our legs, assuring us she could finish any dessert leftovers, but still we demurred. “Then how about the shrimp burger?” she purred. It was beef hamburgers for us, all around. We skipped dessert.
Here are two more of my “painterly” edits of photos. I wish I could paint this well. I believe the first is a detail, with some editing, cropping and deletions, of a night shot of the sky with an overhanging roofline. The second is an edited detail of a blue heron in flight taken at Sea Ranch, California. Only the “Photos” editing software that came with my Mac was used.
For the next few Odd Ball Challenges, I’m going to submit photos that I consider to be painterly. You may not be able to figure out what it is, but I think it works as a composition. I accept all guesses.
