Self Portrait Challenge: "Pop Art" #1


DSC06436
Me and my ipod. I never knew I could be so in love with a little piece of metal. It holds all the songs I love. Every evening I go for a walk. I always take my ipod and hit shuffle. Sometimes I think there are supernatural forces picking the songs as I walk, many times they have been just the ones that I need to hear, or that get me walking faster just when I want to quit. You know that Ipod commercial where the people are walking along listening to their music and they look all calm and serene and then you see their shadow and it's going crazy dancing. That's exactly how I feel, so many times as I'm walking I'm really holding myself back and on the inside I'm dancing. Sometimes as soon as I walk in the door I just stand there and dance for a few minutes, I even got John to join me once. See more pop art self portraits here

I never thought I wanted an ipod until my daughter got her ipod mini. Now, I'm jealous.

I love this! I love the image of you walking and listening and then coming home and dancing in joy.
It's truly the simple things.

This is very much like a piece of artwork. Perfect! It would have made my favorite list :) I just bought a house in Pollock Pines. Howdy neighbor!
