December Theme Day - Waiting

 
Posted by Picasa


This is what the lobby of the building I work in looked like recently when it was packed with college students waiting to get in to see Sir Ian McKellen, who is famous for his roles in various movies like The Lord of the Rings, X-Men, The Da Vinci Code, and many more. He is also an accomplished stage actor and he was visiting the School of Theatre at Florida State University and conducting workshops with our theatre students. You can find out more about him here.

Oh Lois, it is a pity you were not able to spy a pic of Sir McKellen. I love him in his role in the Lord of the Rings. It could have been the best of your opportunity. It was so unfair while the paparazzi can get in the way.

Sorry for not being on here on a regular basis. Things have been overwhelming at my end I always ended up having migraines due to our heatwaves and lots of outside activities lately.

Thanks for coming to visit my quadrat even in my absence.

waiting for the hero!!

Jacob said...

Great theme post, Lois. I don't think I would ever wait in line to see some actor, but this reminds me of the long lines I used to wait in to register for my college classes. In the old days, it took forever! And then, when you finally got to the front of the line, the class you needed was already filled! Ugh!

Shame about Sir Ian, he missed the opportunity to be OUR star!

Bergson said...

I do not know if everyone has seen

Lois said...

Jacob, I remember waiting in those long lines to register for classes at FSU back in the olden days! Now the students just register online.

A quite original interpretation of this Theme Day, and easily at hand! Well done!

Frank said...

What could represent WAITING better then these students all queuing up in and around a lobby at FSU.

Perfect choice and shot Lois!!

Patience is never easy.

Don and Krise said...

Boy, if that's not a bunch of waiting people I don't know what is. That really is too bad he imposed the "no photo" rule.

Sad they didn't let you take pictures of him! Tch tch tch--in the meantime, that lovely young lady on the right has the most beautiful profile...the kind I love to draw.

Wonderful post, my dear!

JM said...

He's a fantastic actor and gave you the (forbidden) opportunity for the theme day. :-) Well done, Lois!

If I were there, I would be in that line too!
