iPhoneography Mission #19

Mission #19: Document your conversation partner and what fills the space between you.

I enjoyed this mission, although I did keep forgetting about it! Still, I did manage to capture a few images mostly from this weekend and with food involved,lol.

Charlie and I had lunch at Cheesecake Factory on Monday. We ordered items from the new "skinnylicious" menu, while waiting for his new Droid Razr. He had smashed his iPhone 4 the week before by dropping it down the stairs at the Miami Dolphins game. Since his contract was up, he decided to get the Droid. It took FOREVER for Verizon to transfer all his info from the iPhone to the Razr. 4 days later, he was back returning the Droid (which he hated) and getting the iPhone 4s. He can recommend the veggie burger but not the Droid Razr! :)

 On Friday, I met my "niece" Leanne for a quick lunch. She was not feeling up to much as she had all four wisdom teeth pulled a few days before. She was worried about a bruise on her chin and her puffy cheeks. Thus, I decided to title this image "cheeky". :) We talked about her role as Irene in Chekhov's Three Sisters and her new boyfriend (who is currently on Broadway in Wicked!). We made plans for an upcoming photo shoot and we planned to meet up in London in the Springtime. 

On Saturday, I met up with Lita for a day at Flamingo Gardens. Here, I was telling her not to move as her shirt was matching the jeep and I wanted to get a shot of it. Later, we went to lunch at our favorite place near Flamingo. A little tea room called Vienna Cafe & Bistro. I was going to take a picture of Lita while there but we both got distracted by what filled the space between us: Her floral, dainty and delicate tea cup. I didn't realize I didn't document HER until after I got home.

The dainty teacup that kept distracting me. :)

I did have a lot of various conversations with critters while at Flamingo but none were as personal as the conversation about food with this White Ibis. I had massive trouble trying to get the quarter into the food-dispensing machine and the Ibis was poking at my hands and fingers the whole time with his beak, telling me to hurry up. When I finally got the food, he gobbled it from my hand.

A usual Saturday night spent in with hubby and cats. Conversation usually is a variety of topics. But this particular one is Sookie telling me with "that look" that she is being held against her will,lol.

On Sunday, I headed out for a jog and stopped to chat with my neighbor, Craig and his 5 month old French Bulldog, Stella. He told me how he placed her in the Mailbox with a big red bow around it and took pictures to send out on their Christmas cards. Too cute! 

For as long as I can remember, Shaun's cross has been along my walking path. He was a teen who died in a car accident on the street that runs alongside here. I always talk to him when I walk or bike by. I give him blessings and ask him to watch over me while I'm out on my own and, most recently, to say hello to my mother-in-law. Today, after I talked to him, this is what started playing on my iPod
A good way to end the week, I think. Now onward to the next mission:

Mission # 20: Position yourself as close to your subject as you can get.

Full steam ahead into the second week of January!

Good work, Laura! Looks like you had a good week. :) On that cross/song - that is so symbolic; talk about a sign. I think that exchange you have with his is great and very spiritually enhancing for both of you. Upward and onward - feels like January is already slipping by!!

These are great! I love your tidbits after them, and I love that you captured so many shots! I only got a few...I just don't cary on many conversations, I guess!! LOL!
