Five random things....that can get a girl blogging when there's a whole bunch of things on "the list" that she should be doing instead.  Random doesn't require much thinking and is more fun than anything else I'm supposed to be doing.  Boom!

The Craft Table 165/365
The Craft Table
Seriously, I don't craft.  I go to Michael's and wonder what people do with all that stuff.  This table looks like a craft table. 
It's where I'm matting photos for my next show-in T minus 7 days.
Yes, this is one of the jobs I'm currently procrastinating.

Bicyclist 171/365
In the snow.  Heavy snow, coming down fast.  What's up with that?

As In Winter?

At the old trolley and railroad museum.  Because I wonder a lot, I wonder where Wonderland is.

Roll Hole BW 159/365

This brings random to a whole new level.

Apartment House on the Water

Reflections always seem random to me.  I especially enjoy them when they become distorted-just a bit; a touch of abstraction.
Those are my 5 random thoughts du jour.  Well, I'll probably have other random thoughts later, but these are the 5 I'm sharing.  Have a great random Friday.

Love your random finds and thoughts. Wonderland sounds nice. Wonder if you'd find Alice there.

Wonderful photos! That trolley looks like an old Boston MBTA blue line train (Wonderland is at the end of the line near Revere Beach). I love the texture of your b&w photo of toilet paper! That is one brave cyclist! It can't be fun to ride a bike through that snow storm. Great catch!

Carol Blackburn said...

Hey Susan, more information on your show please! Did I miss one of your posts??? Enquiring (not that I read the Enquirer) minds want to know.

Claire said...

Love the photos - esp. the loo roll - brilliant!
Thanks for visiting and have a fab Friday :)

Lisa said...

Well, I'm very glad I wasn't drinking something when I saw the roll hole shot. :-) You've done an excellent job capturing *random* this week!
Visiting from R5F

Karen said...

Love your randoms...especially the bicylist with the swirling snow. I definitely wouldn't want to be him, but it sure makes for a great photo!

Kathryn said...

Oooh a show, sounds good. Where is it at? That poor cyclist at least he's all geared up. The toilet roll answers the question whether you're an over or under person, he, he. Hope you and the furry kids are staying warm and safe. We finally had some rain last night which cleared much of the snow, can't remember the last time I saw our yard. May get some more on Sunday although I'm hoping for simple rain, our cistern could use it.

Enjoyed my first visit to your blog. I'm one of those who buy all that stuff at Michaels. Stumbling upon art journaling just over a year ago, I'm a full blown addict now. Who knew a roll of TP could look so good!

Beth @ E. Lizard Breath Speaks said...

TP always over - good job!! that is not TMI for me ... i think it is a very important topic for sure. ( :

i love your blurry biker shot nice!! i guess that is a train car? love the blue.

Norma Ruttan said...

well, at least you've discovered where Wonderland is! did you add texture to the tp image? it's quite interesting even though it's only tp. if I'd seen someone cycling during our snowy weather, I'd probably think "idiot!" then again, that's his only transportation. so now I'm thinking not so much of myself. I abolutely love the reflection shot, that's my dream, to live either by water or on water.
thanks for sharing on RF5! it's been way too long since I've been here!

Fun randomness! I love the old trolley to Wonderland! How cool is that! Your great at finding amazing reflections!

Stephanie said...

Tell us about the show - we need to know. I've been to Wonderland - it's a dog track where you would find some really interesting characters to wonder about.

Great set of random photos, my friend. I laughed at loud at your winter Wonderland trolley, especially knowing how you really feel about it. And I'm still wondering how you manage to turn a roll of toilet paper into art. Who needs craft supplies?

"out loud" not "at loud," but you knew that.

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

Wonderland is awesome.

Barb said...

Great photos and randomness. People bike in the snow in our mountain town, too - seems so dangerous. I love the toilet paper shot!

Sarah Huizenga said...

Let me know if you find Wonderland. I would like to go there!

Nancy said...

Perfect randoms Susan -- love the Wonderland shot -- love all of them really.

Have a great Sunday and thanks for joining in this week. xo

My day is always much improved by some "Random Susan" :) All wonderful shots but you know you had me with those gorgeous reflections - rippled and abstracted. And yes, let me know if you locate Wonderland - I'll ride along.
