30 Days of Photos - Day 9 - Disguise


We're into Week #2 of 30 Days of Photos IV, or as Ziva likes to refer to it "Bob".  Did you know BOB backwards is the same as BOB frontwards? Yeah, it's a palindrome. Just thought I'd point that out.

Today's theme is disguise and after getting through week #1 I think I'm gonna start wearing one.

As I paddle in my kayak.

Hey, I'm on the level here.

Pop on over to Madam Ziva's and see who else is wearing a disguise today.

I feel like I missed something. Why are you wearing a disguise while paddling a kayak? In any case, kudos to you for having the good taste TO kayak. I swear it saved my life I love it so much.

That mask looks a tad wicked, I don't know why. Pray tell. Why is this challenge called BOB?
nonamedufus said…
I'm a superhero of the great outdoors.
nonamedufus said…
I don't know Babs. It was Ziva's idea. Hey, Bab is a palindrome, too.
meleahrebeccah said…
That is a KICK ASS mask. And kinda creepy!
babs (beetle) said…
Especially if I say "Hello 'sbabs here"
Agent 54 said…
I don't like using Palindrome for Bob. less letters to just say Bob is Bob.
nonamedufus said…
The lighting's from the Flash Light App on my iPhone of all things.


And, yes, Bob is easier to say, and spell, than palindrome.
nonamedufus said…
Thank you. My step-son made it at school when he was much younger. It's plaster of paris, painted blue.
Ziva said…
Ohh, very artistic, dufus, and very nice! I love it! Too bad you ate the nose, though.
nonamedufus said…
I'll pass you'e reaction along to him.
nonamedufus said…
Yeah, it's my attempt at artsy-fartsy. I think it's kinda cool. I guess you could say I've unmasked my true capabilities.
nonamedufus said…
I've had the fartsy part down for some time now.

That's a great photo, NoName. But is this something you own? Why? And when do you wear it? With Mrs. NoName?
nonamedufus said…
I'm a ballet dancer in my spare time, Mike. Good work out for the calves, you know. Last time I wore this was during Swan Lake.
MalisaHargrove said…
I'm so impressed by this photo. Love the lighting. I couldn't tell if the mask was metal or something less dangerous, but I read your comments and found out it is plaster of paris. I would like to be plastered in Paris.
ReformingGeek said…
[Insert evil laugh here] Very creepy. Evil Twin wants it for her closet door. Maybe it could disguise itself as a knocker.


Great photo, though!
nonamedufus said…
It's made of plaster ofparis. One knock and that'd be it, Ref.
nonamedufus said…
Ya, plastered in Paris is a great idea, Malisa. I'm in.
nonamedufus said…
Plastered in Paris. I could go for that.
nonamedufus said…
Well it's made of plaster of paris. One knock would be bout all it's good for.
Lauren said…
Cool picture. Is it a picture of your brain exploding?
Traci Shannon said…
Very artsy! I can almost hear Phantom music in the background.
:-)

nonamedufus said…
No, it's only Day 9. But maybe in a couple of days.
nonamedufus said…
Ah, right. But now his mask covered only half his face.
Cheryl said…
Did you make that yourself from papier-mâché? I wouldn't wear it while paddling a kayak. A canoe, yes. But never a kayak.
nonamedufus said…
Maryse's son made it when he was a kid. Maryse never throws anything away.
Nicky said…
I really like this shot, mon ami. The air of mystery, danger... just like you, right? :-)
nonamedufus said…
Oh, absolutely. Shaken not stirred.
Shawn Ohara said…
Great shot! Terrific look with the lighting. No need to wear a disguise after this one.
mike said…
Cool mask. I like the shadow play on this one.
nonamedufus said…
Here's how I did it. I went into our windowless, darkened powder room, flipped on the flash light app on my iPhone and took several pics with my iPad. This is the one I chose. Might've worked for the "illuminate" prompt to if I hadn't taken it only yesterday.
nonamedufus said…
I did too. And the arc at the top is kinda special too.
Shawn Ohara said…
That just proves it. No need to over think it. The proof is in your terrific photo.
nonamedufus said…
Who knew I'd do some of my best work in the bathroom?
Cheryl said…
Well of course not. When the house gets too crowded, just rent a storage unit for the overflow. Worked for my mom. (I really like this photo. The light and shadow are really intriguing. #TeamLame really needs a new hashtag.)
nonamedufus said…
Let me amend that. She never throws anything away unless it's mine.


How about #teamsortalame?
That is absolutely gorgeous!
nonamedufus said…
Thank you Katherine.
Is that your kayak, cleverly disguised as a mask?
Cheryl said…
How about you make the jump to #teamadequate with an eye towards moving up to #teamsatisfactory? Yeah, I know, both of those are pretty lame, aren't they?
nonamedufus said…
No but in my secret identity I get to say things like "Madam I'm Adam"
nonamedufus said…
I like team adequate. It's like a step above lame.

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.
