Q: What's Lamer than Lame?

A: Spotting an Ikea paper ceiling light in the window and stopping to photograph it.

Not so lame, right? But wait, there's more.

I tripped over, and nearly knocked down a small child during the procurement of the photo because I was fascinated (lame!) with the juxtaposition of the circular bulb of the metro light and circular nature of the white paper flower Ikea light.

Evan, of course, walked away and pretended I was on another planet. Which by certain measures, I was.

I guess I'm lame too. I probably would've done/thought something very similar.

I think you got a marvelous photo. I would stop for an Ikea light, too. :)

+who's lamer…

silly moments to reflect upon out of the blue and randomly laugh at ourselves… those are good.

Sometimes you just have to laugh at yourself! Great photo! And great eye for catching it! What we don't do for art!
