Firefly, Up Close / July 16, 2004
Well, I tried for half an hour to get a decent shot of this fire fly, a.k.a. 'lightning bug' (what we always called them). However, I have an irrational fear of bugs, and just couldn't control the old handshake problem. Can you imagine? My siblings used to pull their 'lights' off their bodies and wear them on our faces when we were kids!
I was too lazy to get out one of my IS lenses or cameras, so I just messed with this in PS until I got SOMETHING that wasn't TOO hard to look at.

Summer School Buses / July 14, 2004
Took Rudy out for a walk today and decided the buses would make a colorful PAD, even if the shot is a bit boring.

Train Station / July 12, 2004
On a late, rainy, summer night, commuters drag their tired butts home on the NJ Transit trains, only to get right back on the very next morning!

Why No One Bothers Me When I'm In My Car / July 6, 2004
Well, at least it's not FOOD! This is Rudy. a.k.a. 'Rufus', 'Roo' (which is what I call him), 'Bear', 'Black Dog', and a few others he answers to. He is VERY big, and you can see his head is filling up my obscenely large SUV (Ford Expedition). He thinks he's the co-pilot.
This photo is pretty weak in most aspects, but YOU try taking a photo of a dog sitting behind you while you are driving 55 mph down the road (Caution: do NOT try this with a DSLR, lol)! Anyway, he protects me, or at least looks like he does. He'd surely lick you to death if you met him! Here's a shot of him showing the entire view of my now healthy, beautiful, adopted, half-shepard and half black lab MUTT: http://www.pbase.com/image/30761095
I think he's gorgeous.
The Architecture of Cake / July 5, 2004
