Saturday Photo Hunt ---- Smelly






SMELLY


Smelly, adj. informal: Having a noticeable, usually unpleasant or offensive odor.

I find many of the Photo Hunt themes difficult. Sometimes I don't have any idea what to post, but since I joined I have always managed to think of something. This time I can think of many things but it seems I am reluctant to post any of the malodorous things I can think of.

The garbage workers are still on strike, after more than two months but I don't really think you want to see another photo of my garbage can. Of course, luckily, you don't have to actually smell the unpleasant things we post this week, but I am sure our imaginations will fill in the blanks. So without further ado may I present today's ripe gym clothes, about to hit the wash along with my three year old gym shoes. We all know that ladies don't sweat, they glow. Yeah, right!



Not wanting to leave you with that bad image and smell, here is a photo of one of the flower stalls at Granville Island. So take a big breath and imagine the beautiful lilies and lovely tulips. Enjoy!


HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND EVERYONE

Those can't stink nearly as bad as my dads after a few games of racquetball--he goes through a t-shirt a game--you can wring it out. GRoss. I LOVE that t-shirt. Where did you get it. I think I need one. :)

Great shots. Good choice of the theme.TC

I love your gym bag or maybe it's a T-shirt (the "so many books too little time" one). The ladies glow line reminded me of one from my childhood - horses sweat, gentlemen perspire and ladies show the heat, or something like that. I sweat buckets. Speaking of buckets, I love the buckets of flowers at the flower stall. Beautiful image to end on. Have a great weekend.

Amy said...

Yeah, I enjoy the second smellies much better!

Sarge Charlie said...

Lee said...

The scent from the beautiful flowers easily overcame the stink from the boots, jmb! ;)

Nap Warden said...

Oh my workout clothes are bad! Love the flower shot!

Lynn said...

Oh yes, rubber shoes and socks or any clothing for that matter stink especially when they are stalled in the laundry basket for several days. :D

maiylah said...

wonderful idea ... both "smelly" shots! :)

changeiam said...

Gym clothes full of sweat now that's definitely going to be smelly and hopefully the strike ends soon and you get your garbage cleared. I love lilies and tulips :) My smelly is up

ipanema said...

happy weekend! :)

Colin Campbell said...

I would say that smelly is a tough one too.

When we were in Washington State on a trip for work, we were encouraged to go up towards the Canadian border to see the tulips. Unfortunately we were about three weeks too late.

We drove to Vancouver instead and had a nice afternoon and evening looking around.

rowena said...

Sir Philip Johnston-Higham said...

JMB - is that the best theme they could come up with?

The second shot surely compensates for the first one ;-)

jams o donnell said...

I love the caption on your t shirt. Nive pics. Happy weekend


Your bin men have been on strike for two months now? That is not good.

RUTH said...

I see we had similar smelly ideas...I love the beautifu scent you left in my mind with your second photo :o)

Heart of Rachel said...

Oh my, hope the strike will end soon. Two months is certainly a long time.

Thanks for sharing the photo of those lovely flowers. I love tulips!

eastcoastlife said...

Ahhh... I prefer the lovely scent of tulips!

OMG! The garbage collectors are still on strike!? 2 months!? Gosh. Why dun you move to Singapore? Our garbage is collected daily.

I'm so blessed. No strikes in Singapore!

Michele said...

Hehhehe.... love the way you took care of the workout clothes by posting the flowers... whew!

Hootin'Anni said...

I think your ideas are great!!!

Garbage workers? On strike? ewwwwwwwwww!!!!!

Love the flower photo, that's a fantabulous idea.

Thanks for dropping by my 'smelly' blog.

Liz said...

Husband goes to teh gym while he's away and brings his clothes home at weekend: now they're smelly! I can't ebleiev anyone as ladylike as you, jmb, could do any more than slightly glow!

Lovely flowers and what a good idea to leave us with a pleasant smell.

I have some new rugby players up ...

Andrée said...

Yup, gym clothes are pretty bad! Your flower photo is so lovely!

Empress Bee (of the High Sea) said...

great post! ha ha ha

smiles, bee

Dragonheart said...

Three year old gym shoes? Are they still giving your feet enough support? My mom is a group fitness instructor, and she says it is best to replace gym shoes every six months.

Gym clothes can certainly be smelly - my humans both run marathons, and they are very smelly at the end of their long runs. Flowers are nicely smelly. :)

My smelly photo.

WorksForMom said...

Fantastic shots!!

Joyismygoal said...

glowing post i glow a lot when i exercise:>

CRIZ LAI said...

One look at the shoes reminded me of the article by one of the participants this week. Someone murdered his room mate because of his smelly feet.. haha. Does the smell really affect a person until that extent? Anyway, great shots this week.

Gledwood said...

Your new portrait is really entertaining!

Janice Thomson said...

Good one Jmb!
Liked how you did this creatively with a good contrast between the two smells.

cathy said...

well jmb, your gym clothes don't look like they smell bad...:) You always come up with such good pictures.

TeacherJulie said...

Nothing smells like gym shoes but then at least one gets the exercise to be healthier ;)

Love those colorful flowers.

Have a great weekend, jmb :)

Corey~living and loving said...

great choice for the theme.
happy weekend!

KISSEDALOTATOADS said...

Great idea, thought everyone would come up with smelly shoes, but hardly anyone did. And the flower shot is beautiful. Have a good weekend.

Expat Traveler said...

I'll take those great smells of flowers any day. :-)

jmb said...
