You keep switching up your picture :) PSA indeed.

Stephen A. Bess said...

I change because I does what I do. :)

Rose said...

Whenever I come back to Washington, I am going to look up these places you show on your blog. Have a great weekend!

loove the pictures and the showers are for dirty people more.

Stephen A. Bess said...

Hello! Stay tuned for more.

Yeah, when I saw those words I had to take a snap. :)

You know I passed that 2nd image about 3 times in a course of 1 week before I took a picture. It had that same effect on me too. This is especially true if you could see the area surrounding it. Thanks.

That second one really touches me. I wonder if it's the plant we call croton or another we call Joseph's coat? My mother usually knows.

Sculptures, statues...if they had nude ones or semi-nude ones here, people would Holler! Protest! Bad influence on children, etc etc. Even though there are mad people walking stark nekkid around town and sane men who pee in public on the roadside. Oh the ironies of life :-D

Stephen A. Bess said...

This is a strange world indeed. I think that this overwhelming attitude towards the human body lends itself to devious behavior. (The Talented Mr Ripley: "How's the peeping, Tommy?") *smile*

Stunuh Jay said...

If showers are for dirty people, then the English people must be very clean ;)

Happy Friday!! Have a good weekend.

I was gonna say how I loved the sculpture, and I do, but I read the comment from guyana girl and its the same here. Once I shaperoned a 4th grade class to the musuem and we were instructed not to go in the hall of statues for that very reason, they said it was pornographic??? ever watch MTV?

Lori Stewart Weidert said...

Fantastic. I love that you capture what others just walk by every day. #2's a gem, and the showers for dirty people is hilarious.

Cergie said...

Weird this ornement plant growing between the slabs of pavement, isn't it ?
Life is always the winner.

Regarding #2 -- Beauty can be found in the most unexpected places -- don't you think? All you have to do is keep your eyes open for it.

Regarding #4 -- You're wrong for that -- got a sistah jonezing for Krispy Kreme! You are just wrong...wrong...wrong.

Have a blessed weekend-mine is off to a great start :-)

I always love your photos, Mr. Bess.

You truly inspire me.

Stephen A. Bess said...

LOL! I thought it was the teeth. :)

Tu s-
That's crazy! We pretend to be more decent that we portray. This is why we have so many peepers. :)

Thank you so much. I like your photos for some of the same reasons. :)

Yes, life is wonderful and strange. :)

Comedian, Bruce Bruce said that sign will make you wreck your car! :)

Lyrically speaking said...

The first two pics to me are beautiful, captivating and sensual. Thanks so much for sharing.

Stephen A. Bess said...

That's a great idea. Would you buy one? :)

Thank you and welcome!

Prisoner's Wife-
Thank you so much! I'll keep on doing what I do and as soon as I get that show I'll hit you up. :)
I hope that all is well with you and yours. Many Blessings~

I really like those two as well. I put them first for that reason. Thanks.

Reflex said...

Wow! Excellent series! I really liked the contrast of "beauty" :)

Jenell : BlakIzBeautyful said...

The beauty photo is banging!!!!

The flower looks soo pristine against the dullness of the contrasting background.



chez bez said...

Beautiful shots. I can't wait to dig into your blog a bit more.

GnightGirl pointed me your way. Be well.

Geoffrey Philp said...

Great picture of the flower. Of course, it takes a talented eye and a full heart to notice beauty at one's feet.


Stephen A. Bess said...

Thank you so much. That is my favorite too.

Thanks, but I just saw it there and "Snap!" :)

Thanks and welcome! I'll be by to visit you as well today.

Thanks! You know, I'm always looking at the ground. It's not that I'm sad, but sometimes I find money. :)

Thank you for the blessings. I'll try to bring more by weeks end. Peace~

Dance_Soul said...

to touch a unicorn said...

Aw the infamous Dupont Circle of one of my favourite movies "The American President" , lol Thank you so much for these lovely images Stephen. I see there is beauty even when there is chaos. :p

Stephen A. Bess said...

Yes, chaotic beauty. That's sort of like a quiet storm or peaceful riot. :)Maybe not, but I like the words.
