An interesting candid. I see Moira is a traditionalist and prefers the mouse to the touch pad on the laptop.

Excellent candid. Runes are most certainly there to be read . . .

Fascinating! It has a feeling and colours of Sickert's 'Ennui'. Lovely.

First you see Moira (with a look of resignation on her face), then we travel round the room via Bill's nicely-manicured toes and into the mirror. Good colour too; b&b/hotels always seem to have such dull lighting. What a fab shot.

''Herself'' has had a hairdo and a different colour rinse since we last met Bill. Suprised to find out it is a laptop here,it is bigger than my suitcase !! Not often you get away with leaving your feet in an image,but works a treat here !!

21 Aug 2010 - 3:52 PM

Excellent shot Bill, a great candid .


21 Aug 2010 - 4:01 PM

And doesn't look pleased at what she's seeing.

I love this Bill. A peek into the private little world of the Woolybills. Would have made a good Silly Sunday entry. It certainly made me laugh.

what a fun, Bill!
the three layers (your feet, Moira's face and you in the mirror) make you enter in the picture, ending this indoor journey with the author of this great idea.

PS was she looking at some beautiful sunset or at a great robin shot?

Struggling for a bon mot? I hope it wasn't my picture. A great shot and a wonderful glimpse into your travels.

Nothing so grand, Gentlemen - she was undoubtedly looking at one of my efforts!

So much to see here Bill. That juxtaposition of your toe with the camera bag for instance. Two cups on the dressing table (much like one I used to have in Norway), the still mostly full bottle of drink Smile a camera, reflection of the back of the room, and of you in the mirror. Wonderful cast shadow on the wall behind the dressing table.
And finally, Moira, intent on understanding why she likes a particular image, totally absorbed. The entire image is priceless! If this had been a painting, it could have been done by Normal Rockwell.

Oh well, Bill, I love this - so very similar to when my husband and I are away from home... do I see there a bottle of red wine??? Ah!

A familiar sight as my sister-in law's been Skyping us from their various hotel rooms on their Boston holiday. I spotted that bottle of red wine, too. Love it.

23 Aug 2010 - 8:14 PM

one of these scenes which are so nice to view... makes you immediately feel the touch of everything: a good rest after a day's walk, the warmth and tidiness of a temporary "home" which is far from Home, the silence, the playfulness and the thankfulness...
I've just seen Moira's latest upload (the not-mushy one Smile ) and the truth is these two shots just match so well... happy anniversary and happy yourselves for as long as possible!

Such an interesting image Bill. Moira looks as if not quite sure what to say on what she is viewing. Love her hairdo Wink Good to see you relaxing, that bottle looks interesting and you reflected in the mirror. A well thought out shotat the end of the day xxx

Iíve been looking at this people picture containing two photographers / EPZ drug takers in a hotel room for a few evenings since it was first uploaded and now ready to comment.

No hesitation sticking my weekly award on his one. Love it.

Takes a lot of looking at and I'm pleased you haven't 'corrected' the lighting as it gives such a good sence of time & place.
One to bring a smile to the lips.

Another swig of the wine on the dressing table might provide Moira with a bit of inspiration. John
