Snap! Snap! Snap! Snap!

We ate Christmas Dinner OUT, as in a restaurant. We were standing in line with over 100 people waiting to get inside and I glanced at the window and saw this. SNAP! because I could

 The Ladies restroom wall at Goodwill.... Snap! because I could

 K-Mart Parking Lot. Snap! because it was so cute and lonely

Dove on Back yard power line. To far way, wrong light. Snap! because who cares if the light is wrong

Still more of your city, I'm LOVING it!!! You need to go out more by yourself and continue to show us this beauty from your perspective! Who would ever think of snapping the bathroom at Goodwill?? But it is amazing!!! Looks like a fancy zoo bathroom, or a big aquarium. Sister, I snapped the bathroom at the Botanical Gardens, a monkey pattern!!! And where on earth is open to eat on Christmas day??? I'm not able to cook for everyone so we usually end up just having cold cuts. I order trays, but not very good, nothing like a hot meal. Nothing here is open on Christmas.

Fun photos, Sandra. Just in the last 2 weeks, I've been awakened by mourning doves.

Have a great day.

What do you mean too far away, wrong light? I love the last shot of the silhouette of the dove looking off into the distance and the palm fronds hanging down.

That is a cool painting of the manatee and the fish. I love it! Who could have found such a thing in the Goodwill ladies room? Only the MadSnapper!

The Joys Of Having A Camera!!! :-)

Aren't we lucky? We who have learned to love and embrace our cameras? Yes we are!!!

Be they big. Be they small. Be they able to .... *do everything including do the dishes.* -grin- Be they just in a phone. Or be they just my original little cam. Or be they the a-bit-upper one I have now. :-) Wonderful all!

Love Of Cameras And Of Photography ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I love the reflections and the Manitee painting is fantastic.

Love all those snaps. Sometimes it is not the light or composition that count but rather the subject matter.

Sandy said...

Your "snaps" are the best. So glad that you could! (o:

Ha ha. Smiling because "I can!" :)

Rose said...

I like that bathroom wall--very interesting...never seen one quite like it.

I always think about eating out at the holidays but decide against it because I like the leftovers too much to give them up.

George said...

I'm glad you could SNAP and did, and I'm glad you're sharing these with us. The wall mural is really neat.

Kim @ Stuff could... said...

You snap great photos! Like all the subjects

Nothing much around here is open for dinner on Christmas Day... We had a hard time a few years ago finding a place to eat on Thanksgiving. We had gone to Kingsport, TN to pick up a friend and take her out to dinner... There weren't many choices--but we finally found Cracker Barrel open --and dinner was good.

Great snapshots.... I know you enjoy taking pictures.. So do I---but I would never think of taking my camera inside the Goodwill (or somewhere like that). ha ha
Hugs,
Betsy

I love your saying "snap because I could"! lol I do the same thing! lol I won't leave the house without my camera with me.

Eva Ason said...

Great snaps [because you could] I like those expressions. The picture of the queue mirroring in the window is so cool! Have a great day!

Ann said...

Is there really any other reason to snap than because you can? If so, I haven't heard. I'm glad you keep snapping, because you can :)

S. Etole said...

The last two photos make such striking silhouettes.

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

Why not snap, snap? As Forrest Gump philosophized, "you nev know what you will get." soundalike good logic to me...and you too?

Ann said...

your winter is not that bad right? otherwise I don't want the 100 waiting outside. My dad and Husband would say, come on, lets get home and eat instant noodles. It happened once when we waited more than 1 hour.

RoeH said...

Wow....that rose in the header is gorgeous!!!!

EG Wow said...

How smart of you to take your camera with you and use it while you waited in line! :)

SweetMarie said...

I LOVE your "because you can" photos! They're all great! I love the dove on the power line. The painting of the manatees is really cool. I'm pretty sure Cracker Barrel was opened for Christmas here in Orlando.
I need to carry my camera with me at all times. You're an inspiration. :)

Susannah said...

I'm so glad you "could" take these lovely pictures. You can do anything you want, Sandra!!!!!

Always a joy here Sandra!

Chatty Crone said...

You are full of sass and feelings today. I can. Who cares.

But a 'cute' K-Mart parking lot?

Deb said...
