“a plack for your thoughts …”


Corby's "Plack" Shop

Carolyn is working awhile this morning and I am editing the last of Sunday’s photos. They ain’t great but they are satisfying to my need to shoot and edit.

I have several photos converted to b/w and have them in a special account on Megashot.ย  I know you are anxious to see them.

Megashot has surpassed the 4,000 registered member mark. Mark’s Black and White Community is one of the most popular on the site.

Obama is such a lying snake in the grass; I don’t know who he is depending on to reelect him; he has alienated the young, the middle class, and the higher educated groups. Unions don’t like him, geezers are very suspect of him, environmentalists don’t trust him,ย  and the One-Percent hate him. Fortunately for the president the only person he has to beat is a shaky Mit Romney it seems, and it is beginning to look doubtful if Obama can even do that. He had better come up with something new; if he stands on his four-year record, he will surely lose. Occupy may be his worst enemy.

As for the above photo, I wonder if the guy was wanting to spell the word “Plaque” instead of “Plack”? Lord Google tells me that Plack is a small Scottish coin worth less than a penny. I love the Hillbilly Way.

Have a wonderful weekend!

  1. maybe he was trying to spell “plague” cuz that is what looks like you may get if you venture inside. We wait for your photos. I get a very good sense of Markie every time I look at his photos. My sunflowers are opening their eyes!

    • Ha, “plague” could be it. Ask for a pound of bubonic plague and a quart of pneumoinc plague. Mark put a photo on Flickr and I knew it was his without seeing his name. Good luck with the sunflowers, I doubt they are out of the ground here.
      Thanks, Tammy

  2. It was v. good day for taking photos! Plack, plaque or plague … this is a riddle. Anyway, it was piece of life of this man who called this place “a shop”. ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Very beautiful b/w photo-stream, my friend. I regret I can’t leave you my comments.
    Have a great weekend!
    xo

    • I have a couple more good scenes from Sunday but the focus is a bit shaky from the van; I will soon re-shoot them.
      Thank you for viewing my b/w photos on Megashot; I would have a Flickr account for them but I don’t want to buy another Pro account.
      Thanks, Jola. ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Let it be free account. You can post here 200 photos. I will be your “contact”. ๐Ÿ™‚

      • It is something to think about. I have a lot of b/w shots on my regular Megashot account, too. However, I learned from Megashot that two accounts can be confusing if you are using both a lot. Maybe …
        Thanks, Jola. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Fantastic shot to introduce your news.
    Very happy to see you shooting and editing. I’m looking forward to visit your second Megashot account with your b&w shots, but not today, we have an hour less ๐Ÿ˜ฆ and need to rest now.
    A big hug.

    • Thanks, Albert. My b/w shots are no better than the color ones; I just happen tp prefer b/w for most of my pics.
      Hugs, my friend.

  4. Did I take that picture, seems like something I would shoot.

    I will vote for a third party candidate this year.

    • Don’t think I didn’t have you in mind when I made the shot. I like doing these, but not much of it left in civilized E. Tenn.
      If I went to the polls, I would write in Noam Chomsky. However, I have been disenfranchised in Tenn. because I don’t have a photo I.D.
      Thanks, Mark.

  5. Hell,being anything other than a right wing Jesus freak in Tenn. makes you disenfranchised.

    • I know, but it wasn’t like this until the “old south” invaded us along with RR.
      Thanks, Mark.
