Photo Challenge: CHEEKY?

Do not take life too seriously. You will never get out of it alive. Elbert Hubbard
Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please. Mark Twain
Laugh and the world laughs with you, snore and you sleep alone. Anthony Burgess

For this week’s photo challenge on CHEEKY – … what do you think? I love the weekly photo challenges because they force us to step out of the familiar, comfort zone we inhabit as amateur photographers and try to look at something new through our lens; a new perspective, a new angle, range, theme and we get so much from it. Cheeky is not a subject I think about when I take pictures. I love nature and street scenes and such, so anything that pushes the envelope for me is a good thing. I didn’t have much on file and was going to try another backdoor approach to the challenge. I decided to take a walk in my neighborhood first and, lo and behold, that cheeky Santa Holiday decoration was sitting in someone’s front yard… talk about serendipity!


“The best ideas come as jokes. Make your thinking as funny as possible.” David Ogilvy

I never said most of the things I said. Yogi Berra
Laziness is nothing more than the habit of resting before you get tired. Jules Renard
If you could kick the person in the pants responsible for most of your trouble, you wouldn’t sit for a month. Theodore Roosevelt

Why did I include some of the other shots? Good question… Our family cat is very cheeky and when you want him to do A, he becomes determined to do B. The shots I included were because I had specifically asked him to exit the bag, shopping bag, and get off my new book. The responses are clear. Haha! Come back for more on the other photos.
