Bodega Bay is a picturesque little fishing village in northern California.
It's August 2008, and myself and the dinky dynamo Eolist have stopped here for a spot of lunch and a photo opportunity. It's quite a find for us; apparently they filmed a famous movie here once.
As I pose for the camera in front of the old schoolhouse and its playground, Eolist starts shouting and pointing. I frown and try to listen, but her words are swept away by the wind blowing down the hill.
Am I standing bland? I do forget to smile sometimes. I pose harder.
My friend continues to wave and shout.
Is my tie not straight?

Should I NOT be thinking about Edgar Allen Poe right now?ReplyDelete
Hey Britt! Well, if you try not to, you inevitably will. These were a mixture, but I do love Poe's favourite. Indigo xDelete
Hey Lass! Well said! The camera does NOT love me, but I really don't help it try. Indigo xDelete
and you should see the flock that ISN'T in the photo...ReplyDelete
Hey Eolist! True, but you did look taller when covered by them =D Roth xDelete
I think you need one of those plastic hooded ponchos. And a slingshot.ReplyDelete
Mum says I can have a slingshot, but not a hoodie.Delete
Holy Shades of Hitchcock, Indigo! What did you and Eolist get yourselves into this time?ReplyDelete
Hey Boom Boom! I'd rather not talk about it. Especially the bit in the phone booth. Roth xDelete
Was there bird poo on your shoulder?ReplyDelete
Hey Max! I couldn't move for the stuff by the time we were done; I looked like I'd been victimised by an incontinent pteranodon. RothDelete
That is such a great photo! I was born in SF and loved "The Birds" but have never been to Bodega Bay. I think I've got to go!ReplyDelete
Hey Linda! Marin County is the best. We loved it around Inverness and Point Reyes Station! Indigo xDelete
BAHAHAHA! Wonderful nod to Hitchcock! I can't recall how many times I saw that movie, but it scared the bejeezus out of me each and every time. But damn, it was good.ReplyDelete
Hey Jayne! I know a few folk who have been scared of birds since watching it. Primal stuff! Still, it inspired ANGRY BIRDS, so it's not all bad ;> Indigo xDelete
Hey Indigo - looks like you should get the flock out of there buddy!ReplyDelete
Eolist saved me - she picked me up and ran with me. She's tiny but feisty! RothDelete
Why I oughta...
Heh, lost concentration. Lemme try that again. No, STOP that! Okay, once more. With feeling x RothDelete
I wouldn't have been shouting if I were her. I would have been running far far away, and bully to you haha!ReplyDelete
Hey Kato! You're a woman of compassion. Here, I saved this rabid seagull for you... Roth xDelete
