Can you tell Dr. Seuss Hailed from California?

“Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.”

dr. seuss 2

“Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened.”

“Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple.”

dr. seuss 6

“A person's a person, no matter how small.”

“And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow,
stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons.
It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags.
And he puzzled and puzzled 'till his puzzler was sore.
Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before.
What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store.
What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more.”

"It's high time you were shown, that you really don't know all there is to be known."

Very cool. Somehow we did not manage to get to the theatre to see "Horton Hears a Who." Might need to put that in my netflix queue. Beautiful...and funky :-)

Love Dr Suess, yes I see where he got his inspiration! My favorite is "The Pale Green Pants with Nobody inside them". Actually, I think its called, "What was I afraid of" but the other title is more descriptive.

Dr. Seuss, he's always been a favorite. Gotta give a man that can rhyme and make complicated ideas so simple his props!

Isn't God a creative designer? :) Dr. Suess isn't bad either, LOL. The photos made me grin!

Thanks for your help on my photoshop actions. My hubby found my layers palette for me. :) I posted the results...

I stumbled on your post and as a "baby" photographer, I really appreciate all your tips. I had to comment on the great pictures on this post...we recently lived near Joshua Tree National park and the first time we visited, knew this was the home of many a Dr. Seuss character!

Hi, I was sent here by Debbie from This is the Life. I am a pro photographer, too (over 20 years). Love your shots. I will be back regularly to enjoy the view!

I love unique and funky looking nature. You do a great job capturing it too. Thanks for another beautiful look at the ordinary stuff around us. You're an awesome photographer!

Thanks, All :-)

Katolin - you got to live near Joshua Tree?!? My boys would be so envious - they love the abundance of cool rocks there.

Teri - thx for visiting. :-)

In Jason's Middle School Graduation speech, he used the first quote! But that might not have been written by Dr. Seuss - there is some doubt. Anyway, it's a cool quote. Also, some of those photos really do look like his creatures! Very cool!

SKELLER said...

Katherine -
Kudos to Jason (what a great quote to incorporate in his speech!!). I *almost* added a footnote about the questionable attribution of that first quote, but ended up not... Are you making sure the packers leave your computer out til the very end??? ;-)
