"The Beard of St. Nicholas"...I think you should submit that one to The Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster ...it appears you have a bona fide FSM sighting there. You, Cate, have been touched by His Noodly Appendage.

Ramen.

LOL!

I especially like 'Fat woman at Mardi Gras' very surreal.

Self portrait. :)

Jamie Eyberg said...

I don't believe that for a minute.

Pastafarians Unite!!

Ahem.

Looks like bonfire night was great fun. These are too cool-- I particularly like The Devil's Mark. :D

Catherine J Gardner said...

I'm particularly worried about the Devil's Mark - especially with it falling over my street. ;)

Carrie Harris said...

That is SO cool. I will never look at fireworks the same way again.

Catherine J Gardner said...

Then my mission is accomplished.

Laura Anderson said...

Very nice! I think my favourites are the Two Horses Running and the Fat woman at Mardi-Gras :-)

Kelly said...

Cool pics! Love the titles!

Catherine J Gardner said...

Laura - my favourite is the two horses too.

Cheers, Kelly.

I kept waiting for one of them to look sexual. Can you tell I'm a Freudian?

Catherine J Gardner said...

Well there was one of two naked Asian men, but I didn't think anyone would be interested in that. :D

Mary said...

Great photos!! I love the first three, and particularly Two Horses. They’d make fabulous Happy Bonfire Night cards!

K.C. Shaw said...

I think Follow the Irradiated Road is my favorite. You could make it into one of those inspirational posters. Very cool pix!

Shadow Kain said...

Don't worry about the Devil's Mark. You were viewing it upside down. Those were 9's. :)

Catherine J Gardner said...

Mary & KC - I feel a new career on the horizon. ;)

Shadow - still convinced someone around here is evil. ;)

Kim Kasch said...

I bet if you tried to repeat those pics - you never could.

It would be worth a shot.

Brenda said...

Great pics! Our fireworks all look the same around here...or so I think...The next time we have fireworks in my area, I may have to get the camera out and see if the pictures tell a different story...

Barry Napier said...

These are amazing, simply put.

Catherine J Gardner said...

Kim, I've thought about getting the camera out again on New Years Eve, though I'm certain I won't be as lucky.

Ooh, take some photos next time and put them on your blog, Brenda. We'll decipher the hidden messages in our skies. :)

Cheers, Barry.
