Candid Camera

Several people have asked if Mommy has a camera with her at all times because of all the pictures she takes. Well, the answer is yes - pretty much. But, not only does she take pictures of us, she also gets pictures of other unsuspecting people or strange places. Here's a few of her candid shots and we think you can biggify them to take a better look.

This guy was walking in Eugene, OR. Can you tell he has a white cat wrapped around his neck?
Mommy saw this place when she went to Las Vegas. It says Showgirl Supplies across the top but see what's written on the left hand side window - Tax Return Preparation! That's a combination Mommy hasn't tried yet!
She noticed the bumper sticker on this pickup while traveling down I-5 at 65 mph (or close to).
Here's a better look. Note: Daddy was driving when Mommy took these pictures.
This car was in the parking lot of a local grocery store. Guess you have to hope if a friend sees your vehicle they don't have a stack of Post-It notes with them!
And finally, this was a woman (not a plumber) in the Los Angeles airport. Daddy didn't want her to take a picture since the gate was packed with people but of course she thinks "have camera, will click!"

Hope you enjoyed these candid camera shots!

Big time motivation. I'm going to start grabbing my camera when I head out. You really never know what you might run into....I wonder if anyone recognizes that butt crack...lol

Duni said...

Hahaha! I had a good laugh at these :)
I should make it a habit to carry my camera everywhere too!

Have a good weekend.

Stacie said...

LOL the pictures were too funny. I had to look twice to see the cat around the guys neck. Weird!

Thank you SO much for my morning laugh! That got my day going. That last shot....I mean, how could you NOT take that picture?

Tee Hee - thanks for some good chuckles this morning.

Woos, the OP Pack

Those are so funny! It makes us want to carry a camera more often, too.

EWW - the last one!! That man walking with his kitty around his neck is so neat. I wonder if he's homeless. Great shots!

I've heard of mink wraps but kitty fur? I guess the cat is comfortable.

And think of all the money you could make by offering showgirls tax tips! A little for Uncle Sam and a little for inside your brassier or knee-high boots or...what ever they have on.

And I think--why would you want a copy of that crack? And how can she not feel the breeze? Maybe she works at the showgirl shop.

As usual...very interesting blog, Beaded!

Bob Johnson said...

Lol, great candid shots.

Lin said...

I'm always so afraid to take these shots--well, mostly the people photos. I can't even bring myself to take the photo of "duck" from Duck and Wheel--I'm afraid the people who own him will wonder what I'm doing! You are very brave, mommy. :)

Uh, I would have went into the showgirl supply house--I'm curious to what it takes to be a showgirl.

I've often thought if I could wrap myself around mom's neck like that, and lay really, really still, I could get into some cool places! Can you imagine!?!?
Play bows,

PS: Are you SURE she's not a plumber? Ha roo roo roo!

Merily said...

LOL! Wow, I really should start carrying my camera around to see if I can find funny things, too. :)

I love that one with the guy with the cat around his neck- I've never tried that, but then again my kitty would be a bit too heavy for me to carry around like that 9she's kinda of pudgy and I'm rather weak, lol).

Oh my gosh...they just get better and better! I have tears in my eyes and the dog barked at me for laughing so hard.

Our Mom carries a camera everywhere too. She would like to "borrow" the candid camera theme for her Photo Friday spot ~ if that's OK?

We loved your pics ~ especially the bum!
