I seem to attract strange couches

artfest09.jpg is part of an installation by Unicorn Mountain. I was wearing shorts that day, so taking this photo reminded me of why I once gravitated towards wearing jeans year round, no matter the weather. When I knelt on the sun-heated brick, I swear I heard my flesh sizzle! Okay, so it wasn't that hot, but it was pretty uncomfortable. Remember, everyone, jeans equal defense against heat, sun, gravel, glass, and rough surfaces! They also protect you from those embarrassing situations where you get stuck to plastic chairs.

artfest10.jpg is a fountain that has absolutely nothing to do with the festival. I am not sure why they had the water turned off, but it enabled me to see the really beautiful colors the reflection of the pool cast.

artfest11.jpg, artfest12.jpg and artfest13.jpg makes me say, "Why do kids get all the cool stuff!?" Since I was not particularly interested in buying anything, trying to sneak on to the Disney rat-themed inflated thingie, or waiting around in heat to see a show, there wasn't much to chew on. The kids, however, had this gigantic half of a green head, where if you pulled certain levers, you could make the eyes blink or the umbrellas open and close. They had also made leaves for trees, and the rain the night before got into the laminate ... creating some cool steam effects!

artfest14.jpg, artfest15.jpg and artfest16.jpg are from a show by four students from the MFA Glass program of Rhode Island School of Design, entitled "Eidolon." Their exhibit was rather far from the center of activities, so I was one of two people in there for a good forty-five minutes. I suppose my photographs show that my intention was never to document their work. My interest was, before I set foot in the door, the interaction of light and environment with glass pieces ... theirs just happened to be the only ones that were around!

And of course, this post would not be complete without a pretty flower photo:

Art Fest

Of this batch, artfest13.jpg and artfest17.jpg are my favorites.

Bah! Why must the only choices be jeans or shorts? :P Jeans are too thick when it's hot out, and shorts leave sensitive pastyflesh exposed. :D What about khakis? Or slacks of some sort? Or dresses and skirts, even? You're a girl, you could pull it off. :) Thin enough to not be horrible, but long enough to not be... horrible. Win win? :P

It's all about the pants!
Dresses or skirts would not work for me for the following reasons:

1.) If around the knee or above in length, which is in season, they pose the same problems as shorts!

2.) Longer skirts get caught in stuff.

3.) They're not as easy to run in.

4.) They don't go as well with good walking shoes.

5.) They generally don't have pockets.

Ahhh, I forgot about the lack of pockets. :( That does sound annoying.

I hope you find a workable solution. :)

Give me a couple years, and I'll invent air conditioned denim!
