That Which Cannot Be Contained

The other day my wife and I stopped at this store in Brentwood Square, a shiny strip center, to buy a basket for newspaper recycling. After I put it in the trunk of the car I looked up, saw this and exclaimed "holy bleep!" Fortunately, my camera bag was in the trunk, too. Just one of those little pleasurable moments life throws our way.

ever see the great old Disney film, Fantasia? There's a sequence in which Mickey Mouse, playing the Sorcerer's Apprentice, animates a broom to do his water-hauling chores. Never seen it? Click here.

TOMORROW: what happens when you use fill flash on the reflective sign on the cart return corral in front of Whole Foods.

nice catch. now, aren't you glad your camera follows you around all day like a little puppy?

Holy %()%& you do need a 12 step program if you had your camera in Whole Foods!

PS THat sky is gorgeous and of course you had your camera. You probably got in, whipped out your MacBook, downloaded it, and jazzed it up in PS before Carolyn could get in the car!

I've passed up so many great sunset photos because there was a store or other newer (read boring)building in the way. This picture is making me rethink that. Thanks!
