Railcar Noir

Here’s a shot I took at the Museum of Transportation in St. Louis. Also, this is the part of the show where I should probably pen something all dark and brooding… if only I had ‘the writing skills’…

Napoleon Dynamite: “…I don’t even have any good skills.”

Pedro Sanchez: “What do you mean?”

Napoleon Dynamite: “You know, like… nunchuck skills… bow-hunting skills… computer-hacking skills…”

No Parking

These boots were made for walking, but this ramp sure wasn’t made for parking.

Walter Sobchak: “Who’s got a f****n’ million f****n’ dollars sittin’ in the trunk of our car?”
The Dude: “Our car, Walter?”
Walter Sobchak: “And whadda they got? My dirty undies… My f*****g whites…”
Walter Sobchak: “Say, dude. Where is your car?”
Donny: “Who’s got your undies, Walter?”
Walter Sobchak: “Where’s your car, dude?”
The Dude: “You don’t know, Walter?”
Walter Sobchak: [clears throat] “It was parked in a handicapped zone, perhaps they towed it.”
The Dude: “You f*****g know its been stolen.”
Walter Sobchak: “Well, certainly that’s a possibility, Dude.”

Scene from an Apartment (liquid emulsion)

As if Monday’s aren’t crazy enough, right?

Sometimes being thick skulled is a good thing – like when… uh… what was it I was going to say again? My memory just isn’t what it used to be, and I have no idea why. Anyway, this is another image I made in one of my college photo classes. Good times! I think. From what I can remember of them, anyway.
