Winners never quit

Winners never quit: it says so right there on the restaurant wall.

Also: the restaurant has gone out of business.

Ah…irony.

…and never the twain

The fun thing about big event centers is that sometimes scheduled events may not always exactly align. A fancy fundraising event was scheduled just across a walkway from the tattoo expo, and I guess these drapes and fence were supposed to prevent any overlap.

But I think we all know that there was some degree of crossover between the two activities.

A wide range of options

Last August, I got a tattoo on my leg, to cover up the scar from knee-replacement surgery. I hated the scar, which made me feel really old since knee-replacement is sort of an old-person’s thing. I am aware that the tattoo is far more visible than the scar, and that my logic could be considered a bit flawed. But it makes me feel better about the whole situation.

And it gave me the cred I needed to head over to the local tattoo expo the other day.

I can’t explain my recent need to photograph people, though.

Please do not disrespect

Have you noticed what’s been going on here on the blog? How more and more often people are showing up in the images?

I can’t explain it. And I’m sorry if it’s leaving you confused. It’s leaving me a bit discombobulated, too.
