"A Thousand Words in Idioms"
If "language is the dress of thoughts" ( Johnson), then idioms must the wardrobe ...
if you see which way the cat jumps, you postpone making a decision or acting until you have seen how things are developing.
I wanted to take a picture of a very cute cat sitting on this window sill in Lourmarin, but she beat me to it and jumped off. In a fraction of a second I followed the cat with my camera and tried to snap her picture anyway, but I was too late. When I saw the picture on my computer my initial thought was to delete it. And then I thought it made a rather nice shadow shot for the Scavenger hunt. I ended up using a different one for the photo hunt but I still kept it in my archives .
It's a good thing I did not delete it. I could not think of a better picture for this idiom!
T is for ...
"Take your hat off ":
If you say that you take your hat off to someone, you are showing your respect or admiration.
This man is an ice cream vendor in the streets of Lourmarin. I published another picture of him in my Photo Scavenger Hunt a while back. I'm very pleased to anounce that it has been voted best picture in the "laughter" category of Kirsti's Scavenger hunt. But I took more than one picture of this man, he had such a photogenic face!
This is the second one ... And once again, he tells the perfect story.
