Photographing Idiom is Greek to me, but I‘m sure I‘m not the only one. We might be all in the same boat for all I know, and here is my contribution to Karma’s October Photo Hunt. My first idiom is hit the hay meaning to go to bed. Back in the days mattresses used to be stuffed with hay or straw, so when one was hitting the hay they were on their way to bed. I saw this dog at the temple sleeping on a straw like mat while the monks were chanting.
I have been preaching to Lee that money doesn’t grow on tree, and she was surprised to see that it does grow on tree at the temple.
I believe this is a Chinese idiom, to beat the drum and sound the gong. It is to order an advance or retreat, to egg people on or to call them back.
Last Saturday was Lee’s 10th birthday party. This image is perfect for the idiom icing on the cake, meaning when you already have it good and get something on top of what you already have.
Last but not least, I think this image speaks for itself. Max is in the doghouse.
Bonus Halloween images, one of my dad’s neighbors gave us a sneak peek tour of his garage haunted trail. This one is a skeleton in the closet.
Lee came face to face with a robotic skeleton ghost.
And we saw this on our way back. I keep an eye on him the whole time while taking this picture and thank goodness he didn’t smile for the camera. I hope you have a safe and happy Halloween.
