Just A Bit For Now...

I am having a terrible problem with Blogger this afternoon! I don't have too much time just now but wanted to post a few pictures from yesterday. Bill took me to the little town of Wyandot, Michigan this weekend. We stayed at the sweetest Bed and Breakfast and had such a good time. Yesterday we went to Dearborn and the Henry Ford Museum. Here are just a few photos...Now, just why are you getting to see these particular photos first? Well, I am sharing "weird, goofball" photos with my blog friends. You see, I was having the best time all weekend taking pictures. A window here, a car there. A chandelier there, a neon sign here. One particular woman seemed to be all too interested in what I was doing most of the day. I decided not to let her stares bother me, after all, I am 51 now and old enough to do what I want...nanny, nanny boo boo! Not too long before we left the museum, Bill went back to look at one last thing. It was then this lovely dear approached me. With sneer firmly in place she sauntered up and gleefully gasped, "Just what do you think you are doing taking pictures of windows and lighting fixtures?" "Gee", said I. "I really doubt that it is unlawful!" "Well, funny lady, it may not be unlawful but it surely is weird. You must be quite a goof ball." "Um, well, uh...huh?" She started to walk away, looked back once more, gazed up and down at me and sputtered over her shoulder, "Sheesh. It takes all kinds!" So, I thought I would share with you the odd ball photos that Susie Q likes to snap...you know, it takes all kinds!
More terribly kooky and strange photos to come! I hope you are all having a wonderful day!

I love all your photos..goofy hehe. I missed you so much. I told my family about all your pretty pictures. What a crazy old lady!

How rude! And sad that she is one of those people who "have eyes but cannot see". The beauty is in the details! Keep taking your wonderful pictures and thank you for sharing them with us all.

I love to pop in and see what you are up to, you crack me up!

Oh, I love the Henry Ford Museum! I have a cousin who lives in Detroit, and we visited him a couple of times when I was a kid and went there. So neat - they have so many interesting historical artifacts!

Melissa said...

Oh Sue...first of all, I enjoy the Henry Ford Museum, and second of all, I LOVE your kooky and strange photos. All those details you show are beautiful to me! I'm so happy you had such a great birthday, I hope to see some of the bed and breakfast too!

Susie, I love all of your photos! You take the pictures I like to take!!!!

Did I tell you I grew up in Hell, Michigan? Can't remember if I told you or not (old timer's disease creeping in). I lived about and hour fron detroit/dearborn....

Keep on taking those oddball photos Sue, ya goofball!!

That reminds me of when J and I were sitting in a wine garden last spring and I snapped a photo of a play bill for the theater and our two glasses. A man at the next table turned to his wife and said, look at that woman, she's taking pictures of all that stuff on the table. His wife shushed him...wonder if she's an understanding blogger!

Fun post and gorgeous photos!!

Oh my goodness, you have GOT to be kidding!!! Some people are so bold and SO rude!!! I LOVE the types of pictures that you take. I wish I could take photos like that. It's so funny to me how so many think that you're ONLY supposed to take picture of PEOPLE!!! My goodness, think of all you'd be missing out on in the world if we only took pictures of things that BREATHE! :-)

Meggie said...

Susie Q: Fabulous photos, such clarity! Don't you meet some real "nuts" out there? But, like you said, now that we're in our 50s, who gives a fart?! Poor soul...

Sandi McBride said...

why you wonderful goof ball! What a lovely old Court House clock...man am I glad my community is full of goof balls...isn't that what makes life fun!

The Decorated House said...

Beautiful pictures!
Isn't it funny how people stare at you just because you are taking pictures of things that people just walk right on by every single day! I'm glad you had such a wonderful time.

Those ceilings! I could seriously make a lot of... um... cake under those ceilings. Lots of lovely, delicious, sweet, mouthwatering... cake.

Lovely!

Keep on taking those great pictures! You should have taken a picture of her!!! LOL

Cottage Contessa said...

Hi Susie
I especially loved this post as I LOVE Michigan. We were lucky enough to spend a year in Troy Michigan 18 years ago and my husband worked in Dearborn! We met the most wonderful, friendliest people where ever we went. Michigan will always hold a special place in my heart :-}

Janet said...

Sue,
I love those photos; I call them "artsy" shots. Keep up te good work and ignore the oddballs.
Janet

Sugar Bear said...

Oh my word! She wasn't raised right was she? Why was she following you around? She seems like the weirdo if you ask me. Architectual photos are hardly a strange subject. Good for you for taking the high road! And the photos are beautiful! I especially love the chandelier photos!

Nina Diane said...

I love your photos..they are like pics my son and I take. We call them "artsy".
and I'm like you, 51 and I actually tell people....I'm 51 and can do whatever I want!

Cheryl Wray said...

BEAUTIFUL photos... I love staying in b&bs. I know you had a great time!!!

Alice said...

Oh, Sue, I can't tell if you're being serious or teasing us about the rude woman. Anyway, I love your photographs.

justabeachkat said...

She thinks you're goofy. I'd say she's goofy, rude, and nosey. "Boo" and hiss to her! Maybe you had a run in with the Halloween witch!

Your photos are lovely and I'm so glad you shared them with us.

Hugs,
Kat

Sheila said...

I take photos everywhere, and while no one has ever commented, I've had strange looks.
She was the weirdo if you ask me..!
hugs

Valerie said...

quite the weirdo...the woman, not you.
i do the same dang thing. so maybe i AM weird..

Moron Family said...

You must be one gracious woman!!! I would have turned the camera on her and said, "Yes, I DO take photos of kooky things!!!"

How astonishing that people feel the need to speak their small minds.

I LOVED your photos and take photos of odd things myself. Keep that camera going, girl! You are doing JUST GREAT!!!!

Greenie Gardens said...

I'm so glad you braved the "dragon" and took these lovely photos. I love crystal chandeliers, just not cleaning them!

Laume said...

Oh good heavens, I can't believe the rudeness of that lady! I'm just a youngster compared to you (only 50! Snort!) and I take photos of ceilings and walls and doorknobs and chandeliers and cobblestones and all manner of odd things. What a sad life it would be to only look at things the way you're "supposed" to.
