Imperfections

My funny valentime
Sweet comic valentine
You make me smile from my heart
Your looks are laughable
Unphotographable
Yet you’re my favorite work of art
Is your figure less than greek?
Is your mouth a little weak?
When you open it to speak,
Are you smart?
But don’t change a hair for me,
Not if you care for me
Stay, my little valentine, stay.
Stay, and make each day
Valentine’s day.

– Rogers and Hart, My Funny Valentine.

OK, the theme for today, this being February 14th, 2011, is loving in spite of imperfections.   Click on these imperfect photographs for full-size.  They are unsuccessful pictures but have some attractiveness in spite of their flaws.

The displays below, from the New Bern annual antique show, are actually perfect.  However, my photos of them are less than perfect — still not without appeal.

I’ll add a few more pics to this set later this week.  Lord knows I have enough imperfect pictures to add. :)

Anyways, check out a few of the best renditions of the above song:
