Brashley Photography’s Mid-Week Monochrome #67
I suppose besides standing for Pirouette (the Cat) P can also stand for pingback. This is my late in the game submission to the April A to Z Blog Challenge.
To look within is no easy task.
What is the point? One may fairly ask.
To know thyself and to thyself be true,
And to give unto God that which is due.
Xingfu Mama’s Pull up a Seat Photo Challenge #12
GarGar, Lord of the Manor, lounges on the back of this overstuffed chair.
For this Weekly Prompts challenge, I have two presentations. One is of me and my youngster cat, Pirouette and two, a snapshot of a portion of my hat collection. I am particularly fond of the classic fedora.
With daily practice, little Miss Pirouette has mastered the art of jumping onto my shoulder. She can accomplish this feet from pretty amazing distances. If I am sitting at the computer, she can leap onto me from the window sill which is at least 5 feet away. From my shoulder, she dives onto the bed, another 5 feet, without ever scratching me.So these are for the most part my Winter and Spring hats. The Summer and Autumn ones are in another room. This photo shows 8 hats, seven of which are fedoras, and one baseball cap (from Levi’s).Do I have a hat problem? Yes. I don’t have enough hats.
P.S. Have you noticed the sly allusion to a specific book by the great Dr. Seuss?
Without even trying, Queen Pirouette exerted great influence on the fashions of the women of her day. It was only natural given the combination of creativity and personal magnetism wedded to real political power that she represented. For informal occasions, she preferred to wear white gowns with black accents in the form of onyx jewels, black satin ribbons and charcoal eye-make up that some found a bit severe. To show off her thin waist, she would cinch a narrow belt of interesting design around her midsection. Save her diamond engagement ring and white gold wedding band, she wore no rings on her fingers, nor bracelets on her wrists.
