Of Fence

A  L  O  H  A   from   Honolulu!
Railings are little sky fences

“ Dwell on 
the beauty of life. 
Watch the stars,
 and see yourself
 running with them.” 
                               Marcus Aurelius

am I taking this picture?
When would it 
to use it?

The gate is open! It's never open.
Gotta shoot THAT.

But what am I ever
going to do with
these toilet pictures?

Just then,
I noticed a fellow 
working in the yard.

He saw me shooting,
and rushed over -
NOT to throw me out;
But to POSE!

The photo below
is the reason
for this entire post -

No offence! OK?

are just friends
you haven't
met yet

“ We sometimes encounter people, 
even perfect strangers, 
who begin to interest us
 at first sight, somehow 
suddenly, all at once, 
before a word 
has been spoken. ”
                           Fydor Dostoevsky

Thank You!

I think the toilet picture is funny. Here where there are 80,000 abandoned mostly stripped properties it seems the scrappers always dismounted the toilets and left them at the front door. It too is ever a curious sight. Unlike your toilet and friend i have yet to see anyone using an abandoned toilet in the front door of an abandoned house.

I think that the toilet pictures are hilarious! It's so nice to see a complete stranger agree to become complicit in the sequence by willingly assume an awkward pose. He shared your sense of the incongruous!

I would have looked before sitting down as I would be afraid someone might have used the toilet. But it is a funny photo and shows another side of paradise

You know, there may be a market for a book of toilet pics. Toilets of the wild, maybe.

Nancy Chan said...

Lol! I wouldn't want to use this toilet in the open? The model for your toilet photo is so sporting to pose for you.

Teresa said...

What a wonderful series of shots! That guy was so funny. At least the gate was open, so people could access the commode in an emergency. When ya gotta go, ya gotta go...

William Kendall said...

At least the guy's got a sense of humour!

Joy said...

I use my old toilet bowl for my plants. Lovely too:)
Anyway, you had a nice memory there.

Too funny. We sometimes encounter people, even perfect strangers, who begin to interest us at first sight, somehow suddenly, all at once,
before a word has been spoken. ”
Yep. Very true.
