    @ dot_xom
    Sorry but I'm not following.

    My "local" LCS is in Oporto so I have 2 options: mail or get in a 1 hour train ride to Oporto and see the city. Guess what I've picked last time.
    I've never been in downtown like this. Some places have a bad reputation but since I don't know which ones are the bad ones, I was careful and picked streets where I had seen tourist walking by.

    More photos:

    These stairs smeeled of piss so badly...

    but the partial view of the river and the old city walls were a good reward

    These photos are bigger in my Flickr account (created today!)

    Sweet cars?

    Ladies, Gentleman and Glamorous Misc of Whitechapel I give you chikkinz!



    This little weirdo belongs to my landlord and decided to cozy down on one of the cars abandoned in our parking lot. She speaks for the people by pooping on annoying crapped out cars.

    @stsparky - That fucking child carrier probably cost more than the hospital stay when my daughter was born. LA, huh? PS: if it's yours, which I suspect it isn't, no offense intended, of course. ;-)

    Also amusing is the Lincoln with suicide doors and a surfboard on top. I don't get to see wacky things like that. I get idiots that have their pickups jacked high enough to spew their exhaust directly into my open window as they blare horrible new country music out of their speakers with their Confederate flags hanging in the back window. Stereoptyping. But oddly true. In the same vein, there seems to be a much higher incidence of that sort of thing in Indiana that there was in North Dakota. I always thought the hick contingent was pretty large up there. They have nothing on the yokels down here.

    @DC - those are some lovely sidewalk shots. Simply lovely.

    Kirk Fell and Great Gable from Yewbarrow. Wasdale, Cumbria, 29th May 2009.

    One of these days -- one of these days -- I'll think before I leave the house, and take my camera with me.

    Up and Down

    I wish I had a better camera with me when I made this shot. The composition made it irresistible, but my phone camera really wasn't up to the task. I also should have been a bit more square-on to the subjects. Potentially brilliant photographic scene if it were properly framed and focussed. Just image the shot was square-on, with the subjects defined by that rectangular frame, in a nice grainy black and white...that's the shot I had in my mind.

    As always, there are tons of wonderful photographs here; so easy to lose one's self for awhile. I've been out shooting in cemeteries lately but this past week, while chasing down fireworks, there was this bridge over train tracks that begged to be explored.

    Two Cats

    Two Cats, No Waiting. Did a low-budget film shoot today, at a location that makes industrial fastners. Like, rated for hundreds of thousands of pounds. In their back lot, there were about twelve feral cats. Clans, really. These guys were one clan who stood still long enough for me to take a picture of them.

    The two brothers (I'm assuming they were male, they fought like demons but they were only weeks old. And SOOOO CUTE!) I couldn't get close enough to snap pics of. (Sorry, Roo.)

    I never realized that peacocks had such long tails. This one was at Casa de Fruita near Gilroy, CA.

    @CamyLuna - Excellent SF architecture shot, the contrast between the orderly building lines and the reflected light is great.

    More cats, day two of the film shoot. They were much more pathetic and adventurous.

    @ icelandbob : no doubt, they're planning something. The small fellow, upper left, I TRIED to feed, because he seemed like the Runt and I have a weakness for the Underdog. (UnderCat, I suppose.) I was also the Runt and I lived. (Barely.) The other, bigger, faster, stronger ones took food out of his mouth. Fuckers. One more pic to come.
