Hands, Feet, & Boompsadaisy?

Feet enjoy comfort.


Thanks to One Shoot Sunday Challenge  which features the work of Rob Hanson today.


And over on Napple Notes, is another post, of a childhood memory it brought to mind, and for a triple whammy, here's a Sunday 160 character offering for Monkey Man.

A higgledy-piggledy workshop is a must. How else can creation work hand in hand with inspiration? Fingers use materials close by, when brain births a new idea.

  17. Nothing uncomfortable could ever come out of that shop, could it? I found this photo strange because the man's arms seem to disappear--I need to remember to enlarge! ;_)
