The creative act lasts but a brief moment, a lightning instant of give-and-take, just long enough for you to level the camera and to trap the fleeting prey in your little box.

Photo #9

Here's to Doug- a Good Sport!
Yesterday we drove into Portland to
have lunch at Hopworks, one of our favorite
microbreweries. While there we met Doug
who was a good sport and allowed me to
take his photo. Please note: his favorite
animal is the giraffe-hence the hat, shirt and socks.
He is recuperating from a New Years Eve
broken arm and came to have a few beers and watch
the Seahawks football game. It was such an exciting game that
we ended up staying and watching the entire game even though
we normally don't pay too much attention to football.
It was a fun game to watch as the Seahawks won !
Thanks Doug !

Mme Butterfly-
I couldn't get over that hat....which is why I finally leaned over and said "Excuse me, but....."

Thanks for visiting my blog- I am having fun with this and can see that the fun has just begun!
And speaking of hats- yours isn't too shabby either!

Cheers Kathe

I wish there was a good microbrewery near me. We have a few good ones here in Michigan, but the closest one is at least an hour's drive away.

Yes, Doug's a good sport - but what did you expect from a man wearing giraffe hat and socks?
