I have a confession to make


Early AM. MadSnapper steps out in back yard. There it is, a Virgina Creeper dropping down out of the tree RIGHT IN MY FACE!   You Know I had to Snap! it


My confession to you...

I have never seen one single episode of "Dallas"  (but wait, its starting up again) will she or will she not?


 I have never watched "The Wizard of Oz"

are you gasping now? Wait, here is the Real Shocker.....

I wanted to slap Scarlet O'Hara in Gone with the wind, and only watched it ONE TIME....there now, I feel so relieved. My secret is OUT


YES, MadSnapper did edit above and below in Picmonkey......Can you find Jake? Can you believe these two photos were taken at the same time as the first dark ones, the difference being I was shooting into the dark on the dark ones and out of the dark in these. Just move to another angle and Snap!



More Picmonkey Fever made me do the collage

Great pics as always, my friend!

Ginny said...

I see Jake! I like one, two, three, and the pool pictures best. Hey, that's almost all of them anyway! i have never seen a single Dallas either, and also wanted to slap Scarlett, the movie infuriated me. But it was good.

EM Illustrator said...

I see him! :-) Great pictures as usual. Have a great day! My day at work has just began..in for the long haul today :(
Hugs,

Mum has never seen Wizard of Oz or Gone with the Wind - at least not all the way through! She's been to Southfork though. Says it was so windy she could barely stand up! Hehe! Deccy x

I love the name of that plant.

Lynne said...

I have seen Wizard of OZ. I also have to live threw the yearly local OZ festival. It was fun a first, well now just another day of too many people. Great Pics!

Someone should have smacked Scarlett!! I watch the movie just to see Clark Gable. And, when I was little, waited for our t.v. to change to color like in the Wizard...it never did! Don't like Virginia Creeper? How about I send you a clipping of kudzo?

Best,
Bonnie

MOL Mad Snapper do you sleep with your camera? Great shots.

1. I never watched Dallas either and will not watch the remake!!

2. My daughter was a Wizard of Oz freak....even at 2 it did not scare her. Our first pet, mighty mini Doxie was named Toto!!

3. I've seen Gone with the wind once. Scarlet was Queen of Drama...probably where them phrase came from

I really like the dark shots.It makes the leaves stand out so much more. As for movies and TV shows,I am with you. I watch so little.

Maple Lane said...

Fun photos and yes, I see Jake. That pool is gorgeous and looks so refreshing. I admit that I watched Dallas in the early years. I hated the Wizard of Oz and have seen Scarlet only once!

Susannah said...

Great snaps!!!! Yes, I watched Dallas years ago and I kind of liked it!

Rose said...

Sandra, you done good here....real good. Love the difference with the back grounds...

TexWisGirl said...

i really like the first few. very nice and 'soft' feel.

as for dallas, i was addicted - before i even moved here. haven't watched the new one but it is taped and ready.

Cranberry Morning said...

Beautiful photo!! And now I know we were twins separated at birth: I'm with you on all counts, EXCEPT that I did see The Wizard of Oz. Didn't everyone want to slap Scarlett O'Hara???!

Linda said...

Wonderful photo! Great post. I also love your header.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Don't know if you watched Dallas or not, but we did. It was okay---not great, but okay in my opinion. I just struggle with shows where people are all about revenge, selfishness, etc... SO---we'll watch some more episodes to see how it works out.. I do like the characters. (I did watch Dallas years ago.)

I loved Gone with the Wind and have seen it many times. I have seen the Wizard of Oz... BUT--I never watched Mash, Cheers, Seinfeld, or I Love Lucy.... GASP!!!!! ha ha

Hope you get rid of that Virginia Creeper. It can take over the world.
Hugs,
Betsy

Those are some truly spectacular pics of the Virginia Creeper! I'm with you on the Dallas and GWTW. I really didn't like that movie. But the Wizard of OZ?? I love it!! and even have the books on my NOOK. When I was a kid it was a pure thrill to see those flying monkeys.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Love your photos. I decided not to watch the return of Dallas. I do think you should give The Wizard of Oz a try! The movie is really geared to adults, some really great lines.

Deb said...

I have a confession to make...I've never seen or read Gone with the Wind...I never liked the Wizard of Oz...I did watch Dallas when it was on until JR was shot...I didn't see the later seasons...watched last night...on the fence about if I will watch again or not...great photos...looks like something I would shoot...but then you knew that...

photowannabe said...

Can you see the big grin on my face?
Sandra, you are a breath of fresh air!
Love what you do with the simplest things.
I never watched Dallas either but have watched Wizard of Oz a gazillion times.
Actually, now that I think about it, I have never watched Gone With The Wind all the way through. I think I must do it sometime just to know it from beginning to end. (:0)

Betty Manousos said...

one word only from me today.

AMAZING!!!

DawnTreader said...

What shocking confessions! ;)
Did your READ Gone with the wind? I think I read it twice in my teens before I saw the movie (since then I've seen it a few more times). The Wizard of Oz I've seen twice I think, but not until a couple of years ago did I read the book. Dallas I did follow on TV "on and off" but it seems like a long time ago now.

Ann said...

Always enjoy seeing your pictures and makes me wish I had some Virginia creeper
Now for my confession. I did watch Dallas years ago, I've seen the Wizard of Oz dozens of times but never once have I seen Gone with the Wind.

S. Etole said...

Really like the light in these. I'll have to investigate Picmonkey one of these days.

LC said...

I do enjoy those "Confessions of a Mad Snapper"!

Nava said...

You would like the lion in the Wizard of Oz--and the scarecrow--and the tin man--hey---JUST FOLLOW THE YELLOW BRICK ROAD. :)

Liz said...

Lovely images! Vines really are snap worthy. Yes, I can see Jake!
I haven't seen Dallas either :)

Kathy said...

I like the darker photos too. Nice editing, Monkey Girl!

EG CameraGirl said...

Well, confessions here too: I have never seen Gone With the Wind, I've seen the Wizard of Oz once and I have seen a few episodes of Dallas, but i doubt I will watch any more if it's released again.

Catherine said...

Excellent photos - love the green! I hated Wizard of Oz but loved Gone With The Wind. Seen it a few times. And Dallas? I liked that but don't plan on watching the new one.

Keep having fun with that PicMonkey!

Chatty Crone said...

I did see Jake!!! Nice pics. I do have to say I am shocked you didn't see those movies Sandra - why not? sandie

SquirrelQueen said...

I saw Gone With The Wind and later read the book which is so much better. I have probably seen it three or four times.

Wizard of Oz, it has such a fantastic cast. I have seen it a dozen time probably.

And yes, I was one of those who got totally hooked on Dallas. I started watching it because I couldn't believe Larry Hagman could play such a mean character after I had seen him in I Dream of Jeannie. I loved it! I missed the return but may catch up with it later.

Heidrun Khokhar said...

That you don't glue yourself to the screen and get sucked in my the media is actually ironic because you have captured my attention to your image posts. You know how to keep me coming back! TV was a novelty for me. Hence I got to see OZ over and over once a year!
