Broccoli in Pink Gloss

A highly questionable source of vitamin… anything (something tells me the FDA would not approve). From the, “Honey… you’ll never guess what the neighbor is spray-painting now!” series of randomness.

Jason: “Well, I’m gonna go make a protein shake.”

Hawkish Physiology (faux wet plate collodion)

A detail of display at The World Bird Sanctuary. I believe this was from a Red-tailed Hawk, but the way my brain / memory works hiccups along, who knows.

Royal Tenenbaum: “Jiminy Crickets… that d**n bird must have radar in its brain!”

By a Hare…

Maybe it’s just me, but he kinda looks like he’s expecting a package from ‘Acme’.

Bugs Bunny (as Dr. Killpatient): “Tell me, Mr. Fudd… do you have any rabbit inclinations?”

Orange Mist

This wasn’t orange. At all. But it is now. So… that happened… I guess.

Billy Madison (of his art project): “I drew the duck blue because I’ve never seen a blue duck before, and to be honest with you, I wanted to see a blue duck.”

More spring bits. Have a great weekend, everyone!

Maximillian Cohen: “9:13, Personal note: When I was a little kid my mother told me not to stare into the sun. So once when I was six I did. The doctors didn’t know if my eyes would ever heal. I was terrified, alone in that darkness. Slowly, daylight crept in through the bandages, and I could see.”

Bald Eagle

Patriot (from the World Bird Sanctuary) was extremely cooperative. Very kind, don’t you think? Have a great weekend, everyone!

Sweet Dee Reynolds: “Callin’ me a bird all night… makin’ fun… sayin’ names…”

A Pink Kind of Blue

This is pretty close to ‘what I saw’, although I did pump-up the color a ‘bit’, etc. Shocking, right?!

Have a great weekend, everyone!

Mrs. Tarantino: “Are you the police?”

Elwood Blues: “No, ma’am. We’re musicians.”

Luther Tower

One of my favorite phone-camera shots yet… I was almost happy my DSLR battery died. Still, keep those batteries fully charged, people (and by people I mean… you know… me).

Scout Master Ward (of Mr. Bishop’s bruises): “What happened to him?”

Becky: “I’m not sure. I think he went searching in the dark.”

Mr. Bishop: “She stole the batteries out of my flashlight.”

Sidewalk, Concordia Park

More trees. More fog. More… other things… on Thursday.

Walt Bishop: “I’ll be out back. *sigh*  I’m going to find a tree to chop down.”

– Bill Murray – Moonrise Kingdom
