Photo of the day, #381

Hint: this one is male
Hello out there! Can anyone hear me? I hope I still have one or two fans out there. Blogging is much more fun when you know that there are readers out there that are interested in your work, don't you agree? I appreciate every single blogger who has taken the time to comment on my little blog. Thank you for your words of encouragement! And you know what else is nice? I don't get a lot of spam. It's one of the reasons I don't have that Captcha spam filter thingamajig for comments. Actually, I get quite annoyed when other bloggers use it. Please disable it. Pretty please?

Anyways, here's today's haiku hint:

always in a pair
kind of like Bonnie and Clyde
but not on the run...

What is this?

It was an onion ring.
I like to think that since onions are vegetables, onion rings are good for me (in moderation, of course)! They are a good source of fiber and vitamin C!

Well hey there! I don't know what's the weather like in your part of the world, but it's a rainy day here! It's grey and miserable out. I know it's spring and the rain is good for the farmers, but I do miss the sun! I often dream about moving to a sunny tropical island where I can sip fresh coconut water on the beach while I blog. Someday!

Anywho, here's today's haiku hint:

because of its name,

there's only one way
to cut this thingamajig

What is it?

Photo #379 Revealed

It was a daffodil (or narcissus). 
Did you know that daffodils symbolizes rebirth and new beginnings? Perfect for spring! 

P.s you had to be more specific than flower. I've had other flowers on this blog...

Well hello there! So nice of you to pop by for a visit. Hope life is treating you well! I like that spring is here, but my body doesn't. I have allergies to all the dust and pollen in the air. It makes me sneeze and wheeze all day long. It's quite irritating that I can't enjoy the nice sunny weather without having to be drugged up. Anyone else have seasonal allergies? How do you handle them?

Here's today's haiku hint:

this thingamajig
is a sign that spring is here!
To new beginnings!

What is it?

It's Alex O'Loughlin shirtless!!

This sexy man is Alex O'Loughlin, an Australian actor currently starring in the popular TV series "Haiwaii 5-0". He was also in the movie "The Back Up Plan" with Jennifer Lopez. He auditioned for the role of James Bond, but it went to Daniel Craig. Personally, I prefer to Alex over Daniel Craig.

Guess who this sexy mystery man is!

Guess who!
Well hey there! It's been ages since I posted something sexy! I like to spice up this blog every now and again! For my new followers, I've been known to post a  cropped photo of a sexy male celebrity and it will be up to you to guess who he is. But don't worry, I will give you some hints!

This mystery man is:

  • he is an actor (he's currently on a primetime TV show)
  • he's also been in movies (he has tried out to play James Bond)
  • he isn't American, but calls California home
  • he had a son when he was 20
  • he's a Virgo
Who do you think this is?

It was a cucumber.
For all the confused guys out there who wonder why girls put cucumbers on their eyes, it's because this cool and refreshing vegetable is supposed to reduce dark eye circles and puffy eyes. It's an age old beauty secret!

Hello, anyone out there? I apologize for not updating regularly. Sometimes, I feel like giving up on this blog because sometimes I don't feel like there is enough interest or readers. But there's still a part of me that doesn't want to let this blog die! There are still so many thingamajigs out there waiting for me to photograph and I don't want to let down my loyal followers. I appreciate your support and encouragement. I will try my best to keep this blog up.

Anyways, here's the haiku hint for this thingamajig.

every woman knows
about this beauty secret
it is just that cool!

It was pencil lead.

I hope you all enjoyed my guest post, now back to our resident master of macro.

Special Guest Post Alert: Nate's Photo!

Hint: chemically it's almost identical to diamonds.
Hey there! Today's post is brought to you by Nate, one of my many wonderful followers! And if you want to do a guest post, leave me a comment or contact me.

You may notice (or not) that this picture is a little different than normal; that is because Shutterbug has graciously allowed me to do a guest post! Just in time for spring too :)
See for me spring starts when the weather is nice enough that I can switch my winter tires for the summer ones :P

Now not to break with tradition I tried my hand at writing a haiku! Though if I’m honest I’m not totally sure I did it properly (i-de-as three syaballes… right?) XD

Much comes from this rod
When ideas are supplied
Steady hands help too

So what is it?


PS. Don’t worry you’ll be back to your regularly scheduled Shutterbug photos and hints after this :P

Photo #377 Revealed

It was a raisin. 
Did you know raisins are dried dark grapes while sultanas are dried golden-coloured grapes? In any case, I don't like raisins. I like "Craisins," dried cranberries!

Hint: also comes in a lighter colour
Well, hello there! Hope you all had a fantastic Easter weekend. I know Easter isn't about chocolate, but it is a good excuse to get some. I don't know about you, but I am usually tempted to buy chocolates the next day when it goes on sale. My favourite kind are the chocolate eggs with the candy coating on the outside. I'm not a huge fan of the creme-filled ones; they are too sweet. What kind do you like?

Anyways, here's today's thingamajig haiku hint:

is it better when
it has shrunk in size and weight
or when it is fresh?

What is it?

Photo #376 Revealed

It was a stuffed rabbit.
Some of you may recognize this particular stuffed rabbit as "Miffy," a character created by Dutch artist Dick Bruna.

Whether you are Christian or just like to decorate eggs and eat chocolate, I hope you are all having a great Easter weekend so far. For some, it will be a four day weekend. The extra days off are nice. Sometimes, I think we work way too much and not play enough. Life is too short to not have some fun every now and again. Try not to spend so much time on your digital devices. Disconnect from your virtual reality and connect with your friends and family in real time! 

But of course, I want you to leave a comment on my blog first and then log off. Here's today's haiku hint:

they are everywhere
the cliche of the season
but who cares? they're cute!

What is it?

Photo #375 Revealed

It was a drill.

hint: a toy for some boys?
Well hello there! So the talk of the town here is that it's snowing! But not just a little bit. It's quite the snowstorm, with 10cm (about 4 inches) of snow here! It's a little bit crazy. It's April. We should be expecting April showers, not snow in the forecast. But in any case, the extra moisture is good for the farmers since we didn't have much precipitation during the winter. And at least it's not that cold out. Maybe I should make a snowman. The snow is wet and sticky enough.

Anyway, here's today's haiku hint:

size doesn't matter
whether it is long or short, 
it's acceptable!

What do you think it is?

Photo #374 Revealed

It was an exercise ball.
Random exercise tip of the day: Replace your chair with one of these and it will improve your core (abdominal) muscles and posture!

Hint: it comes in a few different sizes

Well, hello there! It's so nice of you to drop by for a visit. Did you enjoy the guest post? It was my first time doing something like that and I hope it won't be the last.  It spices things up and adds an element of surprise. I don't like to be too predictable. It's more fun to be a little mysterious and quirky, right? A huge shoutout to D4, for taking the time to send in his photos and haiku. He did an awesome job! 

Anyway, I'm back with my own photos and haiku hints:

weighs next to nothing
yet can support most bodies
including you, too!

What is it?

P.s if you are interested in doing a guest post, contact me. :)

D4's photo Revealed

It was a stool.
If you guessed wrong, go back to the previous photo and see if you can see the stool now. 

P.s I will also accept "weird chair" as an answer! ;)

Special Guest Post Alert!! D4's photo of the day!

hint: look closely and you just might see it
Hello there! It's April Fool's Day, but this is not a joke. I mentioned the other day that I think it would be fun to have some guest bloggers on this blog to spice things up! This is a special guest post by one of my very loyal readers. He's been following my blog almost daily for the past year! He is one dedicated and passionate blogger. He is the one and only D4! He has the coolest music blog! I'm always impressed by his knowledge of music! If you are ever looking for some new music to groove to, check out his blog! He features all kinds of artists, from electronic music to reggae- there's something for everyone! 

Anyway, here's the haiku hint D4 wrote for this thingamajig:

I don't have a back
But I do have enough legs
A toddler's space ship

What do you think this is?

p.s if you would like to do a guest post, please email me. See the "contact me" page at the top.

Have a great day! :)


Photo #373 Revealed

It was a snow shovel.
Today is April's Fool day and Mother Nature decided to play a cruel joke on us. It's snowing, windy and cold out! It was just yesterday when it was warm and sunny. I guess the joke is on us!  I guess I can't put away that shovel just yet...
