Stick That In Your Pipe


Day 175 – June 24, 2018

Rejuvenate – RDP / Fish – JPADC / Light the Night – PAWC / Tourist – SSC / Stark – TWIPC / Epiphany – WODC

These last two days have been very accommodating to me in that the prompts I used had a solid connection.  Looking at today’s words I feel like a tourist at a Amish Smorgasbord (Trust me, I know that of which I speak). So hang in there with me as I navigate my way through the attempt to link the prompts to the photo.  I just happened upon this piece by total accident.  I was in town looking for photo ops, when I decided I needed to grab a refreshment in order to continue my adventures.  I just finished eating and set out, feeling rejuvenated, to find todays post. All of a sudden the clouds darkened in a stark contrast from the bright sun filled sky.  Before I knew it, the skies opened up, and when I say opened up, I mean it was like a dam bursting.  There was absolutely no place I could be, without  ending up looking like a drowned rat.  Two buildings up was a shop I hadn’t ever been in, but I had this epiphany so I went in, hesitantly.  Once in I realized I was in this vape shop that sold items that would make Spencer’s look like a rogue Toys-R-Us. By this point I had no choice, so I meandered about, and made it appear that I was very interested in the stores contents as not to be called and then kicked out.  As I walked toward the back, things became very interesting, in a good way.  There was an abrupt change of lights, from the business incandescent to the deep saturated UV black light where my first thought was “light the night”.  I found myself surrounded by glass, literally.  Glass pipes lined the multi tiered shelves and there were 3 large glass enclosed curio cabinets.  Each of the cabinets held a piece of glass, the smallest coming in at 52″.  Each glass pipe was meticulously hand blown, designed and sculptured and painted in such amazing detail. I literally stood in front of each, for no less than 10 minutes, gazing at the detailed intricacies of each pipe.  I grabbed my camera and ended up choosing this one because, well frankly I wanted to post the photo so there is a sense of what I saw.  And this one had fish, and I knew that fish was a prompt for one of the challenges.  I had such a hard time finding the right camera settings and ended up using the iPhone photo because it produced the best one.  After a good half hour, the storm had passed and the sky once again was bright and clear. I headed out of the shop with the photo that answered each prompt, a little sketchy but still…. Oh and by the way if you wanted to purchase one of the glasses, the cheapest would only set you back $1200.

    1. I have been having issues with comments, and other computers thinking I was a spammer. I was curious to see if a couple of comments I sent (but didn’t appear on your last two posts) went to your spam account. If you would let me know if they did I would appreciate it! Thanks! 😬

  1. What an amazing photo! And love the title! A photo challenge delight! I love it when bloggers can post one photo to coincide with several photo challenges! Thanks for linking up with #SundayStills…that vape shop seems like a tourist trap literally and figuratively! I am currently looking ahead to match a couple of themes with OWPC and Cee’s black and white challenges over the next couple of weeks 🙂

    1. Thank you very much! I’ve been trying to combine, just to get it out there a bit more. I have set my email up to drop the new prompts into folders so I have all daily prompts automatically delivered to one folder, weekly photo to another and special prompts to a third. Makes it easier for me to get all challenges at once. Problem is I keep adding to them as I find them. I’ve been waiting for a good combo so that I can do Cee’s Black and White as well! Probably more than you wanted to know! 😛But I really appreciate the comment!

        1. I started with Cee’s challenge listings. And that went from one to another and from there a couple of the blogsites shared other challenges that they use and from there it just kind of spiderwebbed out!

    1. YEAH!! Me too! Why aren’t they doing it anymore? I’m relatively new to WP (1.5yrs) & only discovered them a few months before they shut it down. Now I love WP, but I gotta say .. I’m kinda disappointed. It was great inspiration & motivation – not to mention it brought us together.

      1. It is safe to say that I would probably have only 10 followers/following if it weren’t for DWP. It really helped me go through posts and find blogs I was interested in. Now I search through Reader which really isn’t the best or effective program. In fact, that would be something that WP should really improve.

          1. I was thinking maybe whoever was organizing it wasn’t in the mood anymore but I mean come on just pass it on to somebody else who wants to. I had a split second thought where I said you know what I’m going to do it and then I came back to my senses I have so much on my plate I just don’t have time to run something like that right now participate yes run no

          2. I know right. If I did it then I wouldn’t be able to do all the others. And I like those. But it is nice to see so many other great people trying to pick up the slack.
