Zen Monday: #51


Zen Monday is the day you experience the photo and give us your thoughts rather than me telling you what the photo's about.

As I post each new Zen Monday photo, I'll add a label to last week's to identify it if necessary (and if I know what it is). Last week, you may recall, Zen Monday was on Tuesday.


Update: This week, it's only fair that I let you know tomorrow, so tune in.

Is art imitating life or is life imitating art?

And if he offers you some nuts, smile and say, "No, thank you."

Dina said...

And don't accept any mushrooms either!
This is your weirdest yet!

For those adepts willing to undergo the trial, the Old Gods of the prairie still wander the back trails … but in the age of the telegraph and the steam-powered jockstrap, their time has waned. Here, venerated Troglodytes (muse of the suburban garden) performs his lonely abominations, in footwear from Target.

...Or are you just happy to see me.

Cafe Pasadena said...

1st there was Dave Carradine. Now, what's this guy's trick?

frazgo said...

I got a killer tomato what about it?

A lot of people thought Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was a crackpot who believed in the make believe world, but now I'm sure its real. Petrea has cracked into that spectrum of reality that Sir Doyle spoke about....

He once said "We see objects within the limits which make up our colour spectrum, with infinite vibrations, unused by us, on either side of them. If we could conceive a race of beings which were made of matter which threw out shorter or longer vibrations, they would be invisible unless we could tune ourselves up, or tone them down." He went on to add.. "It is exactly that power of tuning up and adapting itself to other vibrations which constitutes a clairvoyant, and there is nothing scientifically impossible, so far as I can see, in some people seeing that which is invisible to others."

Ladies and Gentleman.... Petrea the Clairvoyant.

The land of oz is my own back yard,

marley said...

That is just plain weird and so very wrong!

ben wideman said...

By far your weirdest Zen Monday shot yet. I can't wait to hear the story.

Pascal Jim said...

Is this creature on the road not taken?

Bettina said...

Did aliens invade Pasadena ???

HearkenCreative said...

I second (or third or fourth) the motion to hear what this is about...can't wait for the story, Petrea!

The closer you look, the weirder it gets. Maybe that's how life is: it's only when you zoom in close that the damage shows. Remember C3P0: "That's funny, the damage doesn't look as bad from out here."

Step 11 in the process of Californication...

Escapist said...

Nobody is bored when he is trying to make something that is beautiful, or to discover something that is true.

I, Alone said...

mine, all mine!

Vichara said...

...is this the way to the South Pasadena's Farmer's Market and Vegetarian Social Prom?

altadenahiker said...

He's very excited about the pumpkin.

West Coast Grrlie Blather said...

This may be hard to believe, but I have a voice like Pavarotti.

Tanna said...

Looks like Stanley Kubrick made a children's movie before he died.

pasadenapio said...

I swear those aren't tumors bulging from my stretch shorts. It's safe to pass, really.

Dianne Emley said...

After the massacre at the picnic site, Michael Myers tied his soiled clothing and tools into a Halloween pumpkin-like bundle. On his way back, he couldn't resist rescuing a litter of orphaned baby opossums he found in the woods.

Ted Thompson said...

...and they say there's no harm to living under power lines... ~feh~

maria said...

OMG...he freaked me out.

Lyn said...

Just stepped out of my dream..

Bill Shakespeare said...

The lunatic, the lover, and the poet, are of imagination all compact.

Jacob said...

My initial impulse is to turn and head in the other direction as rapidly as possible.

toast said...

Now that is bizarre -- much more so than the goldfish fountain I posted! It seems like this street performer needs to relocate to NYC to gain a larger audience. Although he might have some competition with the Naked Cowboy...

Ms M said...

Maybe he's a refugee from the 1954 sci-fi movie "Them". Radiation can cause strange effects...

Vanda said...

Pumpkin God?

Tash said...

Who is the stud muffin?

Tash said...

PS - I cannot stop laughing.

AmyR said...

Tiny man...big orange. ;)

Petrea said...

I promise--I'll tell you the story tomorrow, or at least the beginning of it. You all had me laughing so hard today!

This is my first all-Mac post, and today I've spent trying to figure out iPhoto. I had some help from Ibarionex Perello today. He came by to take my picture. (Yeah! Look what he does with a flower! I'm gonna look like a goddess!) But if my pictures look weird, I'm afraid we're going to have to blame it on me until I get this stuff figured out.

One day at a time.

Petrea said...

By the way, if there were a "right" answer today, Escapist would be closest to it. And Susan C, mustangboy and Bettina.

Almost Precious said...

How baren the earth is where he stands...how lovely to plant that tree that he carries so carefully wrapped. Perhaps, someday, it will be strong and mighty and bear the fruit of the gods.

Trish said...

see---mom was right when she said something bad would happen if you kept doing "that"!

Margaret said...

That's freaking me out.

Escapist said...
