30 Days of Photos - #12 - Fear


Welcome to 30 Days of Photos, where 18 bloggers are participating in posting a photo a day for 30 days. Here are the other 17 you can visit after you've been here:



And on Day 12 the photographer saw his shadow.

Know what that means?

I fear that there's still 18 more days of this frakkin' meme.

I'm not afraid of the frakkin' meme. I am afraid I'll got batshit crazy before the 30th.

Hmm, I actually managed to get this comment panel up before Disqus loaded...

I'd have thought your fear was peas - in fact, that was what I was expecting today.

HA! I was looking for signs of a tail or horns or something. However, whenever my shadow goes "boo?" I jump.

And THAT's a spooky image. heh heh
Frak me!

Yes, that's what I'm thinking now into Day 12 of this ordeal. The horror! The horror! That doesn't even begin to communicate my feelings toward this. ;) <-- Sort of.

Shadows always scare me, even when they are mine. (Maybe especially when they are mine!) Nice capture.
Mike said…
Not even half way through this insanity. I'm feeling your dread.

I like my shadow when it makes me look tall and thin. I guess April 12th from here on we will all gather to see if the duf sees his shadow.
Nora Blithe said…
Are you going to crawl back in your hole?

Hilarious! Absolutely, hysterically, funny! And that's NOT my painkillers talking!
Cheryl P. said…
How can you dread the next 18 days when we are all so excited out here waiting and watching for works of genius to appear?

I, too thought that you were going to make some declaration as to how much longer winter would last.

Actually, I had just peed before I took that shot.
nonamedufus said…
I was actually photographing something else and when I turned and saw my shadow it just seemed so natural for today's theme. Scary, huh?
nonamedufus said…
I thought it was time to make a frakin' statement about this silliness. Actually, I'm just foolin' with you. I have all but 3 pictures taken.
nonamedufus said…
This one scared me because it's so much bigger than me in real life. Damn you sun! It's like TV. The sun adds 30 pounds to you.
nonamedufus said…
Yeah, this thing has worried me thin. I'm a shadow of my former self.
nonamedufus said…
I'm fearful of my shadow getting any bigger than it already is.
nonamedufus said…
Excuse me? Where the heck do you think I live? The only time I crawl is after spending the day drinking beer when my brothers and I get together. It's kind of humorous, actually. We take turns crawling to the fridge. This doesn't happen nearly enough.
nonamedufus said…
Well, it just seemed to come together. I don't want to "hog" all the credit though. A certain varmint kind of gave me the idea.
nonamedufus said…
Works of genius? From me? Have you been visiting my site during the first 12 days, Cheryl?
Ziva said…
I don't know, dufus, it seems like a pretty friendly shadow to me.. Now the 18 days left of this frakkin' meme thing, on the other hand, is scary as hell.
nonamedufus said…
Ha ha ha. I'm already there, my friend. They're coming to take me away, ha, ha...

Who knows how many more days of this meme thin we have to endure? The shadow knows!
But, but...I don't know where you're standing! Or what the history of that particular spot is! You're falling down on the job.
nonamedufus said…
Okay, okay. I'm standing on a path next to a soccer field down the road from my house. I'm facing northwest. It's the morning. Hence the shadow falling in the same direction. Happy now? Sheesh, some people.
00dozo said…
Ha! Funny, but cruel. Very, very cruel. And just when I thought I was getting ahead of the game you strike fear into my heart. You bastard.

;-)
nonamedufus said…
I can be like that sometimes. I don't know why or just where it comes from. It's really unlike me. But it's a dark side I have to live with. Now you know.
Nicky said…
You make me laugh, Dufus. Nicely done. :-)
Cheryl said…
I just know if I open that youtube link I'll regret it so I may save this for another rainy day.
Kristen said…
hahahahahahahaha! I have a feeling I'm going to have to bust out the doll again before this is all over!
nonamedufus said…
Well, I try for frak's sake.
nonamedufus said…
Oh, no. Not the doll. Please.
nonamedufus said…
Well it's here when you need it.

My Back Pages - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …

Traveling Along Singing A Song

Pete and Paulie were strolling along one day. The sun was bright, the air was cool, the birds chirped crazily in the trees and the squirrels  munched merrily on their nuts. Well not their nuts exactly. Nuts they found on the ground and in the gardens in the park.

Paulie felt so good he began to whistle. It wasn't any tune in particular, just one of those annoyingly tuneless whistles that wandered all over the place. Pete looked at Paulie and he squiggled up his nose and he said "What the hell is that?" Paulie replied "Oh nothing in particular. I'm just happy." "But you're not even whistling a tune" said Pete. Paulie replied "If you're so wise I'd like to see you do better, Pete."

Pete went silent for a moment and seemed to mumble to himself for a moment or two. Then he cleared his throat with a little cough, he opened his mouth and he began to sing.
