"Little things". Like a pile of trash.

Trish said...

tipping point? Hell, looks like life exploded, leaving bits of life blown left and right on the concrete in front of you.

Petrea Burchard said...

When I pass my tipping point, I fall into a migraine. This looks like a migraine, though less chaotic.

a camping trip that went wrong

Mr LOL thinks this photo is rubbish :).

LOLfromPasa said...

...but beautifully taken, I would add :).

Petrea Burchard said...

Ha ha, Mr. LOL.

Cliff is an excellent photographer. If you're out there, Cliff, please link us to where we can look at some of your stuff.

When it all just get too much - chuck stuff?

Clifford Beshers said...

Thank you, Petrea. I have a rather hodgepodge set of collections here:

Petrea Burchard said...

I just gave +1s to a bunch of your stuff. It was a new and exciting experience for me.

The tipping point...has tipped.

Bellis said...

If I'd tried to take that photo from that angle, I'd have passed my tipping point!

Has anyone read Gladwell? Do you recommend it? No? Tell us.

Ms M said...

Someone cleaned out the trunk or back seat of their car....

Clifford Beshers said...

Gladwell says provocative, interesting things. People who do this stuff for a living often complain that he is far too casual with his reasoning.

Damn...I hate when I drop my purse and everything falls out!!!

Petrea Burchard said...

So, Cliff, what you're saying is there's not enough research to back him up?

Chieftess, that is a hefty shoulder bag.

Clifford Beshers said...

Petrea, more like researchers feel he takes solid research and plays a little fast and loose with it.

Mr. LOL might be right :-) but I like this photo.

The surgery went fine. The next three days were awful but now I'm OK. Thanks for your care, Petrea.

Petrea Burchard said...

It strikes me, Cliff, that we each have the potential to make ourselves an expert at something. I don't know how many hours it takes and I suppose that depends on many things. But yeah, I'm not crazy about his hair.

JM, even minor surgery is hard on a person! I'll bet you have a huge library of photos so you don't have to go out taking pictures until you're good and ready.
