In response to this cliche-ridden photo that I posted last week, and because of comments made by fellow bloggers (Ehpem and Brett Erickson, I am looking at both of you!), here’s a little game I like to call Can It Get More Cliched?
Checklist o’ Cliches:
Cactus, with tunas (the red bulb-like things)*
Ristra (string of dried red chiles)
Turquoise window frame
Puffy white clouds
Carved bench with rustic paint scheme*
Adobe building with tan stucco
So, yes, not only COULD it get more cliched, it just did. And, suddenly, that other shot doesn’t seem so bad, does it?
Thanks for playing.
Albuquerque, New Mexico
* Unfortunately, the judges did not grant my request for bonus points for the tunas on the cactus and the rustic paint scheme on the bench. They are very strict.
On the outskirts of Wink, Texas, the home of Roy Orbison. His first band, in fact, was called the Wink Westerners. You’ve probably heard of them.
