Thank you for this challenge, WordPress. I see now why I am not a world famous photographer. Ninety-nine percent of my photos are taken straight on. Some of them point slightly up or down, but by and large, I stand and shoot. I’m a straight shooter.
“Could you look up a balance for me?” I asked a Bank manager in Palm Springs while I visited in that city.
“OK, I cheated a little. Forgive me. Scardy Kitty, quit looking up at me like that!”
“Yes, you are down. I couldn’t resist, Scardy. When I was busy texting and not driving, I looked up nearly jumped out of the car trying to get a picture of this fellow.”
“You are not improving, Marsha. That’s still not up.” Scardy whined at me in the background as I typed.
How’s this? A ceiling. Is that better?
“That’s more like it. I could sit in that window and chase birds if they flew in.”
“You’re dreaming now, Scardy. How would you even get up to those windows? They are high!”
“Look up, Marsha, I’d jump on that chair, and up I’d go!”
“You’re going to use up one of your nine lives trying to jump on that chair, Scardy. Three Rivers artist Martha Windmann designed that chair.”
“Very funny. It’s just a picture anyway. Look up over there. What is that thing? I see you in it!”
“That’s another piece of artwork, Scardy, made of phones and tablets. I found that in the San Jose Museum of Art in September of 2015.”
“My head is spinning. I can’t keep looking up much longer.”
“Take a break, go walk that railing up there. The exercise will do you good, and you can look down from up there.”
“Wait until you see this building sized praying mantis, Scardy! You won’t be complaining about the bugs around our house any more, Scardy.”
“Help, get me out of here. I want to get back to looking straight ahead.”
“You got me started with your snide remarks about my definitions of ‘looking up.'”
“I like cheetahs, could we get one?”
“You would have to look up to it, respect its authority. Are you sure you want another cat telling you what to do?”
“Let me think about that. Good try, BTW, Marsha. I caught that when you tried to sneak in another definition for look up. Not funny.
Wow, what’s this? I never thought you get a picture of a UFO, Marsha.”
“Marsha, where are you? Marsha?”
Thanks for looking up my blog. I hope you enjoyed my take on this week’s theme.
