WHAT DID YOU USE FOR BAIT?

Nothing says Autumn more than a painted fish. This week we will be featuring some painted fish that inhabit this part of the country. Why do people paint fish? I haven't a clue. In Fort Lauderdale they paint walls, here, they paint fish. There must be some primordial urge in artists to paint, well, anything.

  2. I wonder if they're still tasty after they've been painted. Neat outdoor art idea.

  7. It is an odd phenomenon...the painted fish. That being said, I like 'em. Looks like this guy swallowed a few flowers whole.

  9. By the time you return to Fort Lauderdale you may find painted fish there too.

  10. My dear friend: what on earth does a painted fish have to do with autumn? Especially a fish painted mostly blue. Orange, maybe, or yellow, but bleu?

    Strange things go on in your neck of the woods!

    By the way, did you find an adequate replacement for the Yugo? If you show me what you bought via email, I'll show you mine...

  13. I'm pretty sure that's a Carpus Lillius. It eats bees.

  14. It is always better than our locals' mania of scribbling nonsense on clean walls!

  15. Where's "here" if it's not Fort Lauderdale? I must have missed something. The painting is beautiful though.

  17. came via Cezar and Léia's London wedding post. You can have another wedding, I don't mean marrying another person but rededicating to your wife. My cousin did that, and every one wowed at the wedding dress.

  22. Another happy fish. I suppose there must be a really strong bond between the townspeople and the fish in the area!

    Many thanks for visiting Norwich Daily Photo and leaving your comment. Come visit again tomorrow!
