Wow, what a sky!! So powerful.

I love it that you have a "thing" for trollies, and pubs, and tea and cake. How can you be so quirky and adorable? You break all the laws of physics, my dear.

Whoa! Very intense and threatening! I hope no one was catching waves during this one! Did you enjoy your tea and cake? Congrats on your 100th.

The first thing that comes to mind is "What an ominous sky." And the word "ominous" just sort of echoes around my skull until the sentence repeats itself, and the cycle continues.

Addendum: CONGRATULATIONS on 100 lovely photos!

...That's an odd thing to congratulate you for.

THANK YOU for giving us 100 lovely photos to look at! There, that's better.

Pod, I try to figure out where has this been taken... Is it the very north end of Bondi Beach? The bbq area? Beautiful colours...

Tell me, was that taken about two Thursdays ago? I took a pic of very very similar clouds over Darling harbour on that day.
It was magic!

Congrats on your 100th, I suppose the rolling clouds represent the rolling of the drums!

Enjoy the home-made cake; I hope we all get a slice :-)

Wow - so cool that it almost looks fake - I know you wouldn't do that to us, though!
Great stuff, dude.

Wow, what a wonderful picture.

That picture looks like it's been painted by an old master like Poussin, or Blake even.

Happy anniversary dearie! Heres to the next 100.
The appreciation is entirely mutual.

This IS an awesome picture - ie. not in that teenagery sense.

Green? pah! why green? I'll accept the "ninny" though - what a great word, I'd forgotten all about it!

Happy 100th! What an amazing photo to celebrate with - I think we should all get together a make a hammer horror in tribute. May well be my favourite podagraph yet.

that is effing marvelous Pod!

Blogger lettuce said...

haha, love jda's comment.

Of course I figured out the "green" right after leaving my comment.
Doh! silly me again. In fact, a ninny, you might say.

Except, of course, I could be that lollo rosso type.... but wouldn't want to be, it can be rather tough and bitter....

i'd recommend tea and cake
AND the pub.

larf? my sides ache Pod.

You gladden my heart, you do. I don't care if it sounds medieval, its true!

Mrs. Toe - what can I say?

I must say, I always suspect our guinea pigs. They are capable of anything I think.

The image of your hamster caught in the headlight, wheeling the crumpet, made me think of Eddie Izzard - have you seen him being a squirrel?

Blogger lettuce said...

oh... and also...

Scarper. Thats a word I don't hear often enough.

I always expect it to have something to do with the rozzers though...

Ten Squared Cuts

Ominous skies, awesome colour and lighting
Better have some of that cake
Intense and threatening
So powerful.
Look at Me, Look at me
And I do love a good storm!
And a cup of tea that suits aunt sally
Amityville meets Ghostbusters
Your hamster caught in the headlight
The cycle continues.
Where is Heather these days?
Wheeling the crumpet
If it sounds medieval, its true!
My billowing feelings
Remake with molly on the organ
And yet those roiling clouds are beautiful.
How they explode and change.
Have you seen him being a squirrel?
It can be rather tough and bitter....
