charlotte woodson birmingham alabama

i dont know
 how
 you
 go about writing a post

 there's no hoyles
 for blog post writing
 i dont think

 me
 i go into iphoto
 browse the over 16,000 photos
 for inspiration
 i start
 in 
photo stream
 move to albums
 flipping
 through
 to see
 what there is 
to see

 i wonder
 why
 i have some of these photos

 there is no muse leaping out
 crying
 me me write about me

 last night
 when i went album diving
 i saw this
 remembered the afternoon in birmingham
 how hot it was
 how virginia
 do know her blogs?
 click here and here
 took
 me
 into charlotte woodson
 both to see the wonderful antiques
 and
 to cool off in the air conditioning

 so i am remembering everything
 but
 what the shop is called

 i thought i would avoid it
 tell you
 how
 when i saw those chairs
 i immediately thought
 not enough for the twelve chairs

 i could admit
 i thought it was the ten chairs
 when i googled to get a link
 i couldnt

 toonman saved the day

 then i uploaded the photo
 discovering
 i had labeled it
 charlotte woodson

 now
 i have a post

happy friday

 am i excited?

 are you serious?

  4. Great shot, I agree. I don't know how the blog posts get written. If nothing comes to mind I don't post but something almost always comes to mind.

  11. That's how I write posts, as well. I start with the picture. They all must have a picture. I'm actually excited FOR you. It's going to be so fun.

  12. I quite often do the opposite. I start with absolutely no idea what I will post, go out and take a photo then sigh with relief! Got something for today...hooray! I do have a file with some 'just in case photos'...in case I get stuck. It can be a tricky hobby. All packed?
