238/365 - Being a Stylish Beast of Burden*

Am I hard enough
Am I rough enough
Am I rich enough
I'm not too blind to see
I'll never be your beast of burden

Mick Jagger/Keith Richards - Beast of Burden"
Lesson Learned: Whenever we are overburdened with life's problems or today's (take home office work, school work, groceries, dirty clothes, etc.) do it with style and grace - as a donkey does on a hot summer day! And if we get tired, just stop for a moment or so, and when we are ready - continue!

* Personally, my evolution of style in the beast of burden area has finally "devolved" to carrying even my most important burdens in a wrinkled food shopping bag - the antithesis of style!
Annbramwell Oooh! A wrinkled shopping bag.... very cool Dan! You could start a trend...

helys I think, we "have" or need some style and grace.
Rich or poor, everybody can have his style and grace
Nice street portrait, dan

Annbramwell The Burberry tie of the man in the middle of the picture, makes him the smartest 'Chav' I have ever seen...

Eiram This is the best about getting older, Dan:) I no longer care what others think about my style, I just want to feel good:)

karmankwarner Wonderful capture Dan. We all have our "Beasts" do we not. Becoming a photographer I have started carrying two beasts. LOL :) One for the camera stuff and one for everything else.

Keryl It's a fine line between being comfortable and taking pride in one's appearance.
If you must carry a wrinkled food shopping bag, I hope it matches your shoes.

ArtBee Quite a crowd of stylish people.....
Designer clothes with comfort in mind....
They don't look like "Beasts of Burden", but are all carrying loads!

liveandletlive That guy is stylin' for sure Dan! I always try to dress fashionably because, especially when I am stressed or a bit under the weather, or just feelin' down what I wear can make it slightly better or slightly worse!

hannamagnusson Good illustration!
(this is, if I got you right, why I love nature so much - there you can simply be yourself and don't even think about being stylish in other peoples eyes)
hannamagnusson · 2011-08-30: 02:30
