PHOTO HUNTERS #18--- CURVY


PHOTO HUNTERS HOME

I didn't like this theme. I figure there will be many photos of curvy ladies. . . I was trying to avoid the obvious and found a couple in recent photos I took on a walk downtown.

The first one is a historical building called KIGGINS. It houses a theater and some other shops. It was built when architecture was more important than fast , unimaginative, cheap buildings.


The other entry I have is a painting on a van. . . the stripes on the flag are wavy.


If you really want to see another wavy photo , look below at my post about hairpin lace. . .

Next week the theme is smelly. I may bypass that one altogether. . . probably be just a bunch of socks or feet photos and you can't really smell them. . . maybe someone will get creative and find some smokestacks or a restaurant kitchen or a garbage can. YUP! I think I will take a week off next time.

Ah, but then, Paulie, someone may find some roses next week. In fact, I think I will definitely find some roses. Smelly works both ways!

Paulie said...

Well, ok. I never thought of roses as smelly. They are fragrant. . . to me the word smelly has a negative tone. We will see. I certainly have lots of roses and other flowers to post.

Huey said...

I understand what you meant when you mentioned about curvy ladies. Hehe. I got confused at once with this theme too. Anyway, I like your photos. Especially the one on the van. :D

farmingfriends said...

I think you have made interesting choices as this was a very hard theme. I like the architecture.

Happy Weekend!

SabineM said...

KISSEDALOTATOADS said...

Great choices. Loved the van, nice painting. Have a good weekend.

Liz said...

I was very tempted to take a photo of my cleavage ...


good photos. Interesting architecture, much better than blank and square stuff.

jams o donnell said...

great photos. Happy weekend!

Nap Warden said...

Good finds! Smelly...gahhh, I might have to take the week off as well;)

Carver said...

I like your curvy photographs. It's interesting to me how good the posts often are when people say the theme was hard for them. I think your choices worked well. Have a great weekend.

Expat Traveler said...

those were great curvy finds!!!

tegdirb92 said...

that first photo is stunning!! What a great take on this weeks theme.

????? said...

Great Idea for this weeks theme

Rach said...

I haven't seen one curvy lady yet! Have a great weekend :-)

BlurMommy said...

I don't have a photo of curvy ladies. :P Great choices this week. Happy weekend!

Incog & Nito said...

Great photos. Enjoy your weekend.

shiera said...

I like the van!
But then picture of curvy ladies would have been as interesting... haven't found one entry so far. LOL!

About the smelly entry... I wouldn't mind taking a picture of a garbage can or something just to have an entry. LOL!

Chen said...

Great photos.
enjoy your weekend :)

WorksForMom said...

I was thinking the same thing - lots of women! This is perfect!

Heather said...

I think these really work. It was tricky to find something but once I got started I ended up with too many to use them all.

maiylah said...

I haven't taken a shot of any curvy lady on my camera ... lol. that's why I chose the rose. :)
thanks for visiting!

happy weekend!

Andrée said...

I wish designers would smarten up and make designs for buildings that are as interesting as the one you posted; like you, i've had enough of the boxes they make.

danielctw said...

Who knows, someone might take a photo of armpits or rather something which most of us haven't thought of!

Well, curvy is all it takes for this week

mharia said...

pleasant weekend! :)

jmb said...

As someone said on my curvy ladies, "only women can post curvy ladies this week". So the poor guys had to find other things to post which they did! Thanks for visiting

.:mar said...

You did wonderfully! great choices for the theme.
I feel like you about next week's...I don't go around photographing nasty things...
Happy weekend!!!!

CRIZ LAI said...

Curvy ladies? I did submit mine on that too but surprisingly, not many posted curvy ladies this week.. haha.

Heart of Rachel said...

Love those details on the building. A nice reflection of how the designers paid attention to every small detail.

Hootin'Anni said...

You have two wonderful choices for curvy Paulie!!!

Thanks for visiting with me and my photo hunt...I appreciated your comment!!!

pelfy said...

I like the picture of the van!! Hehehe... Mine is ready too. Do visit my blog for some pictures of curvy shots, ya? Have a great day!

mousey said...

great find for today's theme!

Chris said...

What a wonderful theatre; what a shame no-one does 'decorative' any more. Yes, I think next week's theme is going to be hard!

hana said...

great entry for today’s theme

have a great weekend!

Bengbeng said...

ipanema said...

A. said...

Oh I do agree with you Paulie, about smelly. It sounds so negative. I had trouble with curvy too. But yours is great so no worries!

Thanks gor visiting mine:)

La Chanson de Phoenix said...

Smelly??? Ugh. That will be hard, but I think I can steer away from 'bad smelly'. You did well with this week's theme. My first thought was also women.

TopVeg said...

two very different photos - but interesting curves! I love the old building

LoveMyStarr said...

Very nice! I love the flag on the side of the bus!

Barbara H. @ Stray Thoughts said...

I was afraid there would be curvy lady photos, too, but so far I haven't seen any.

Neat building!

PowersTwinB said...

Hi Paulie! I like the photo of the buildins finales! Beautiful! yes, next weeks them has me stumped too! My photo is up, please come and visit

Nita said...

Nice choice of photos! Mine is up as well. Have a great week!

Love Bears All Things said...

Good photos. Have a great day at your meeting and potluck.
Smelly could be a challenge.

raymond pert said...

Thanks for coming to see my photo and commenting.

You did really good work with this. The flag is my favorite. I look forward to seeing if you change your mind about next week! Maybe you'll come up with a picture that knocks the assigned topic out of the ball park!

satkuru said...

to my surprise not many people used curvy ladies for this week's theme :P

nevertheless, great take on this week's theme :D

Pretty building there with some nice curves!

Next week should be interesting!

Sarge Charlie said...

Chelle said...

Nice choices. That's beautiful detail on that building.

Thanks for stopping by.

Fleur de Lisa said...

The theater is beautiful. I love the lines in the architecture.

Trinity said...

Hi Paulie glad you visited mine! Thank you... this curve on the building is so victorian.. isn't it?

I also find rather hard to post for next week theme, Paulie.. not sure will participate or not, if I am back from my holiday and find something unique.. I will post it for sure!

Janet said...

Oh beautiful curves!

Francine said...

hello there. i was thinking of taking a lady who has curves but jezzz, its too difficult to find one. but the photos you have has lots of curves ha. i like it. i posted my curvy pic late as i went out yesterday lolz

Whirlwind said...

I have a picture of skunk cabbage I could post next week. Haven't really though about it yet.

I like the pictures you posted.

ashleystravel said...

Nice way to avoid the whole "curvy body" photo. I really enjoy them!
However, you have all week to think of something fun and unique for "Smelly." Hope you come up with something anyway!

Amy said...

I thought this one was hard and also thought there would be a lot pictures of women. Not so much though...who knows what people will come up with next week!

Caroline said...

I was thinking I would see a bunch of curvy ladies too. But everyone seemed to find other curvy items. You did a good job with the building. You should give next week a shot. I'll come back and see.

Moe said...

Very nice for the theme!

ghee said...

yeah,nice curvy pics!!

♥Shabem®♥ said...

Until next time.

See Kucing Mafia PhotoHunt


Nice curvy on building. We'll be missing u.

alisonwonderland said...

you've made some good picks for this week's theme! (i'm glad you didn't go the curvy lady route!)

i read your post about quitting Photo Hunters before i scrolled down to this post; i'm sad that you're quitting. for what it's worth, i do NOT go to all the participants every week. i go visit some that i've gotten to know a little plus a few random ones - and, of course, return the visit to anyone who stops by. but i mostly participate to post my own photos. and that keeps it fun for me. (i have pretty much quit some other weekly memes that i always used to do, though, so i definitely understand.)

take care! :o)

Susan said...

Interesting for sure.

Thanks for stopping by my PH this weekend.

:-) Susan

MamaArcher said...

I love the architecture photo!
Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Ellen said...

I love architecture (I worked for a neighborhood association in a national historic district)...as for smelly...we had a stinkbug (I also like bugs) wander into school, but (alas) I didn't have my camera that day.

Joy said...

It's a beautiful curvy design on the building! I agree, architecture back then was much more interesting than the prevailing prefab stuff going on today.

lissa said...

Good choices for photohunt.

Sorry to hear you about you're not participating in any more photohunt. Glad to hear you have more time to do other things.

changeiam said...

Lovely take on this weeks theme and like you said I thought there would be many curvy ladies posted but have yet to stumble upon one.

About taking photo's on a plane I did ask the stewardess before doing so and she said it was ok, in fact on my camera setting I have an auto scene function for aerial shots except it does give a warning stating that to ensure not to use electronic devices during takeoff and landing.

Thanks for dropping by my curvy :)

Mama Bear June said...

Very cool, Paulie. Love your photos! Thanks for visiting me!

I totally understand your feelings about the hunt. The dirty one got a little out of hand. :-(

Barbara H. @ Stray Thoughts said...

Thanks for your compliments on my button wreath! You asked if I had directions as to how I made it. Yes, I posted about that earlier at
http://barbarah.wordpress.com/2006/12/30/buttons/

I read your other post above about quitting photo hunters because of its having too many participants to visit all of them. Though I like to visit as many as possible, I don't think anyone visits them all, not even TN chick. There are a few people I have gotten to know over the months of doing the photo hunt, and I try to always look at theirs, plus whoever visits mine. Plus whenever I post my comment to TN Chick's site, I often visit around to the others whop posted around the time I did. If I have time I;ll visit even more -- but there's just no way to visit all, and no one expects that. So I hope you don't quit for that reason. It's perfectly acceptable to just visit as much as you can. I know I'd like to visit them all because it's fun to see what people come up with, but, as you say, there is just not time and then it becomes a chore.

I love that building. It's beautiful.
