A Very Cool Cake! Photo Taken by Lisa Hill, Daytona Beach Native. Please Take Time to Read the Blog Too!

  Photo Blog & Real Estate Information by Lisa Hill, Daytona Beach REALTOR®. "The Smart Choice"

cakeIt's that time again... time for a REALTOR® to show another aspect of their personality. So here I am, to throw my hat into the ring on yet another Speechless Sunday. And as usual, I'm unable to be "speechless" =P  But as I share this week's photo with you, as usual I will draw the line at any type of description, or discussion regarding the photo itself. But I want to preclude my photo with a little statement about my personal thoughts about photos and any type of art.

Most of the photos we see here on Wordless Wednesday and Speechless Sunday seem to be of a floral or family nature. I've shared these same types of photos, myself.

But when it comes to art, I personally have a penchant for strong lines... like architecture. And I love color... so I have an abundance of sunset-type photos. And when you mix strong lines and color into one photo, I'm in love! ;-)  But I frequently use these within my regular blog posts. So when it comes to our Wordless Wednesday and Speechless Sunday blogs, I want to share photos that I wouldn't normally use it a regular blog post, but I've often already used them. But perhaps when it was within a blog post, your focus wasn't on the photo itself. Perhaps you didn't stop and wonder what appealed to me about that photo, and/or why I even posted it in the first place. LOL.

I guess what I driving at is, when I look at anything of an artistic nature, I like to speculate on why the artist was drawn to that medium, or to that subject, and as I've already stated, I love anything with strong lines. Now I'm not a huge fan of photos of people, unless there's something about the shot that grabs my attention and makes me ponder what they might have been thinking; especially if there seems to be a strong emotion, or an undercurrent of something more than you see when you just scratch the surface. So while I love things that are beautiful, I also love things that are unique.

So far, I've been using photos that I've taken because they caught my eye at one time or another. I'm by no means, a professional photographer. But I am an artist. (In addition to being a REALTOR®. I guess we all can wear many hats.) I guess that's why I have a strange perspective. My husband says artists are weird... go ahead. Let him have it. I'll make sure he gets the messages! (*muwa ha ha haaaa*)

OK, so I could go on and on, but I'll stop here, and I look forward to your insightful perspectives and comments. Go for it! Bring it on! This is by no means a "deep" photo... or is it? Obviously there was something in it that appealed to me. Does anything appeal to you? I know. I know. It's just a cake... or is it? 

What do you see? To whom might this cake belong? What story might accompany it?

I love this! =D  I'm thrilled to know how other people's brains work.

Lisa - This "leaning cake of Pisa" was probably baked by intoxicated Keebler cookie elves. They can't handle their almond extract :-)

It has me guessing at what type of celebration this is for, cleverly, you can't see that top to read any frosting inscription. Does it reflect the personality of the recipient, the giver or both?

Quite colorful cake...looks like either a very good baker and decorator who mastered their presentation or a beginner who got lucky! What is it? I have no idea but it is interesting!

Well, I should have known better than to expect any deep thoughts in this crowd. =P  LOL! I just had an idea though. Maybe this Wordless Wednesday will hold a lot of answers.  Oooo.  Are you on the edge of your seat now?

 hi Lisa, for some reason in your photo I see music, probably the blue ornamentation around the bottom layer reminds me of treble clefs. I'm sure I'm way off base, looking forward to the answer.

 P.S. Here's a strong line. ;-)  ____________________________________

Black is sometimes an indication of a 'monumental' birthday. ;-)
