Literal Girl is Literal

This week’s Theme Thursday theme is: Connections.

No artistic license here. Not today. Feeling rather literal, so I wandered around the house taking iPhone photos of things that connect, including computer connections, USB ports, the back of my television, a phone jack, a cable splitter, etc.

Then it was one inspired idea that changed my whole tack. I sailed in a different direction. And I’m glad I did. Turns out I had a little more arty going on than I thought.

Here is the best of my interpretation of the word connection, and thus, my entry to the party:

Don’t tell The Good Man I raided his closet

    Really arty, I never would have gotten such an idea.

      Hattie – I was just roaming around the house free associating on things that connect and I thought of a button. Then the rest just happened…. :)

    def like my button fly…and here’s to hoping no one pops a button…

    • Karen Fayeth says:

      Brian – Thanks for the comment. And sometimes those popped buttons lead to interesting things…ahem…lol

    A fine hearty connection it is! – I have quite a few- some snaps mostly buttons! Thanks-

  4. Leovi says:

    Wonderful and delicious approach, a very creative photo.

    Karen, Love your “literal” connections. I didn’t realize you could get that close-up and that much detail with an iPhone. But then, I rarely use my cell phone and carry a camera with me nearly everywhere, so I haven’t see the need for one yet. Maybe some day.

    Thanks for stopping by to read about my connections. As an artist, you might also be interested in my post previous to my connections post about Artist Trading Cards ( fun little works of art to trade or sell.

      Hi CJ – The camera on the iPhone has gotten so much better. It’s amazing what it can do these days.

      And thanks for the link, I’ll check it out!

    Certainly worthy of connections.

    Now you have me trying to think how many buttons and how many snaps are on my jeans. I am just thinking about buying a pair of those pajama jeans and just going for comfort nowadays. And I wonder how they are going to improve the camera on the i5 and it is killing me to have to wait until October when I need a new one now.

    Love the pics you take with yours. Happy TT.

    God bless.

    • Karen Fayeth says:

      Mrsupole – I’ve been having a wonder about what the new iPhone5 will have too. Cool stuff, I’m sure!!

      Thanks for dropping by, and Happy TT!!

    It looks, to me, uncannily like a denim creature with a gold eye–possibly a bird, likely a design for a wall on an Egyptian tomb…very cool cuz
