Throwing Smoke

It might have been easier to photograph the baseball and smoke separately and then merge them in Photoshop, but… eh. Have a great weekend, everyone!

Anna and the D.I.Y. Beauty Dish

With epoxy combine the following: (1) Pre-drilled Peanut Butter Jar Lid and (1) Wood Dowel. Tape to lamp. Yield: (1) D.I.Y. Beauty Dish.

Parking Structures

It’s grungy parking bits day (or abstracted view-o-ramp to get there day, anyway). Have a great weekend, everyone!
