Perfect Match

Chance is a great art director. (Either that, or this guy really strives to blend in!)

One of your better shots. I'm looking for the reflection.

Give this guy a glass of orange juice.

Judy Williams said...

I think Mom sees what I did - the theme of orange with his shirt and the pot that the ficus tree is in. Good eye, my dear. :)

Mister Earl said...

Is that Chance Lawson, the architect?

Dixie made me spill mine.

Earthy vulgarity, mineralistic and not so quiet riot bloom of hues.

Yakpate said...

OMG! The reflection in the window looks like the writer's imagination... he is writing a story about a man who is going to his car to take a road trip!

Jean Spitzer said...

He belongs to this setting so perfectly, I wonder if he said to himself, hmmn, Kaldi today, so I'll wear my light blue jeans and orange shirt. Terrific portrait.

Hey Laurie,

Well, it's not a Mac computer and he's wearing socks so I would bet against art director. No I'm not wearing socks and I'm using a Mac. In my case the scene includes a large steaming apple pie.

Ha, later

Okay, who else jumped from the sonic boom a few minutes ago? Discovery landed at Edwards apparently...

dbdubya said...

Yep, that was the Shuttle landing at Edwards. Remember early on when they all landed at Edwards? We got used to the double sonic booms, then they decided to land them in Florida to save the cost of transporting them on the back of a 747 cross country.

This guy is obviously a UT Longhorn based on the color of his shirt. It's not quite the right color, but close enough. He's researching the point spread for this week's college games.

Me too! I thought it was a truck passing.

Did I mention how much I liked the orange duplex image. I did a mixed media piece that looked a bunch like it. I ended up showing it in Korea where it was purchased by a collector.

Cafe Pasadena said...

I don't understand why they keep having to use CA as a "backup" landing strip. Don't they know by now Florida has bad weather!

dbdubya said...

They prefer landing in Florida sinch it results in a round trip with the landing being the same place as lift off. Apparently, it costs over a million dollars to transport the shuttle from California to Florida. It gets mounted on the back of a 747 which has to land and refuel a few times to get there. I guess it's too big to ship by Fed-Ex.

Laurie said...

Hey again,

Don't you just love the orange in this shot? I noticed it when I was driving by and I actually pulled around the block and came back to get the picture. It's one thing to match a simple red but a true terra cotta colored shirt?

I love it.

Pasadenaadjacent, thanks about the garage photo. I would love to see your piece. Surely you have a picture of it to share?

Thanks, everyone for playing along today. Until tomorrow.

Laurie said...

Oh, and DB -- it's definitely a shade of longhorn orange!

Mister Earl said...

We really wouldn't want Longhorn "Burnt Orange" after all we've been through lately!

Cafe Pasadena said...

What's a million dollars in these daze of our govt spending trillions like there's no future tomorrow!

Alex said...

Actually, I'm sure that anyone who patronizes Kaldi's will try really hard NOT to fit in.

Just kidding, great shot Laurie!

Laurie said...

Good points, guys. :-)
