Another shot from summer… have a great weekend, everyone!

Man with Bullhorn: “It’s the authorities! We got you surrounded!”

Ulysses Everett McGill (cowering in hayloft): “Damn! We’re in a tight spot!”

Coneys

I’m pretty sure they come with Tater-Tots. So… you know… that’s… nice.

Napoleon Dynamite: “Are you gonna eat your tots?”

Pedro Sanchez: “No.”

Napoleon Dynamite: “Can I have ’em?”

Pedro Sanchez: *nods*

Napoleon Dynamite: *grabs Tater-Tots, shoves them in his pocket and resumes eating lunch*

A Little Hole in the Wall

This doorway is built into the side of a ‘tunnel’ in/under the Eads Bridge, downtown STL. Kinda interesting. I wish I wasn’t so shaky, though (as you can see the following conversation didn’t work out very well for me).

Me: “Sooooo… do you… come here… often?!”

Tripod: *sighs & rolls eyes* “Puhleeeze.”

Common Blue Morpho

Don’t worry… no animals were harmed or mistreated in any way during the production of this post. The above is a paper Morpho peleides from the St. Louis Butterfly House that I’ve strung-up in a pasta sauce jar (which I even took the time to wash out first). You’re welcome, fake butterfly.

Have a great weekend, everyone!

Hesburgh Library, University of Notre Dame

Here are some random flowers I photographed outside the Hesburgh Library at the University of Notre Dame. There is a reflection pool just beyond these plantings, but I had to crop it out as this entrance was being worked on during our visit and there was construction ‘stuff’ everywhere. Even with the  low vantage point I  had to airbrush out high-reach equipment, etc. Oh well. Good excuse to go back… right?!

Byron ‘Buster’ Bluth (*describing his new construction job*): “…I like it here… and the language these guys use… rough! One of the guys told me to take my head out of my bottom and get back to work! (*cackling laughter*) My bottom!”

Take a Right at the Motherwell…

Why, it’s gallery 338 in the St. Louis Art Museum. Looking into gallery 337. You know… just in case anyone was curious. Have a great weekend, everyone!

Will Hunting: “You paint that?”

Sean Maguire: “Yeah. You paint?”

Will Hunting: “Nuh-uh.

Sean Maguire: “Do you sculpt?”

Will Hunting: “No.”

Sean Maguire: ” Like art? Do you like music?”

Will Hunting: “It’s a real piece of s**t.”

Sean Maguire: “Oh. Well, tell me what you really think.”

Daddy Needs to Get Out More

And now, a conversation with my cat.

Dharma: “Meeeeow.”

Me: “I know, Dharma. I really don’t want to be taking your picture, either. The title pretty much says it all.”

Dharma: “Meeeeow.”

Me: “That’s uncalled for. The same to you, then.”

Dharma: “Meeeeow.”

Me: “Meeeeow.”

I hope you have enjoyed this conversation with my cat. Please keep in mind the ‘details’ would only get lost in translation.
