Sunny Virgin

A view of the tower at the Virgin Megastore at Downtown Disney, Orlando. The Coco Moka Cafe wasn't open yet - I was kind of early that day. The cafe is on the second floor of the store and the patio overlooks the West Side. I love sitting up there with a nice cup of Seattle's Best and watching the people stroll by. Of course, if you visit this blog regularly, you already knew that, lol.

Three Step

I spotted this supply store when I was going through a small town in Florida the other day. Seemed to me like it should be from a Time Gone By, that's why I gave it the sepia tone.

La Petite France

A Farmer's Market vendor with character. If I hadn't just eaten at the Market Street Cafe I would have tried one of his crepes.

I Had A Crazy Idea

I've been reading recently about Ttv (Through The Viewfinder), which is shooting a photo through the viewfinder of another camera. So, when I spotted this panoramic viewer, which self focuses, I decided to drop my little old quarter into it and try to shoot the House Of Blues water tower through the lens. LOL

I must have looked like a bumbling idiot, because, you know, those machines are kind of heavy and clumsy, and it was difficult holding my camera in one hand against the viewer while trying to get the machine into the right position. The last photo is, of course, a normal shot from beside the viewer.

Hey, MB, should I move this over to Crappy??

It's All Uphill

I confess, I was trying to get a Crappy shot of the lighthouse. LOL

My truck broke down on the way home last Saturday, the radiator emptied itself, and I was completely out of water. I was on the side of the road for quite awhile, watching the traffic zip by, hoping a Road Ranger would come along and fill me up. I was on I-4, one of the busiest roads in Central Florida, only two and a half miles from my house.

I was looking down into the bed of my truck, counting all the pennies I've found on the street lately, and when I looked up a van was pulling up behind me. "A Good Samaritan!" I thought. I walked to the van and thanked the man for stopping.

"Miami?" he asked, as he motioned forward with his hand.

"No, you have to turn around to get to Miami," I said, and proceeded to give him more explicit directions, while he sat there looking at me.

"Do you have any water?" I asked, when I finished.


"Water?" I repeated.

"Aqua?" he said, as he picked up and shook at 4 oz bottle of spring water.

What a riot! He had no intention of helping, he just wanted directions to Miami, and he couldn't understand a word I said!!

I was rescued shortly after that.
