I like being on the outside looking in. My journalist's soul prefers it that way because then I'm not part of the story, which is as it should be. I simply observe, quietly, and record, also quietly, what I see. More often than not, these spontaneous people-watching sessions of mine - go ahead, call me a voyeur - don't result in any kind of professionally sanctioned deliverable. But the experience changes me all the same.
On the surface, this is a drab photo (click here for more Thematic Photographic silliness.) Beneath the surface, I'm starting to think drab is anything but. No?

About last week's photo of a wine glass: This is one of my favorite photos because it's one of those mini-worlds that only exists when you look through the lens and eliminate everything else around it. Maybe that's what I like about photography: the ability to block everything else out. Hmm...
This week's honorable menschens are:

- PastorMac's Ann: "Wet but very very dry."
- MissMeliss: "Moment of claret-y"
