The other morning, while I sat at my breakfast table, an armadillo walked past the window, not more than 10 feet from me. As I watched it saunter off into the bushes I ruminated on what a great picture I could have gotten had a camera been nearby. It was then that I noticed I had not one, not two - well, okay, two - cameras within arm's length. I grabbed one, walked outside, spotted the armored beast making its way into a hole, and snapped two pictures. Both were terrible.

So instead I offer a picture of a good band, Atash, who were happy to be playing in what their singer referred to as "the city of Baylor."

At the same event I had an opportunity to harass this poor, underpaid mime, who, very un-mimelike, averted her eyes when I aimed the camera. Maybe she's appropriately paid after all.

the ordinary

Here's a bush I see everyday that's been flowering all summer, just as it did last summer. Every once in a while, though, there's something about the light that makes me go in and grab the camera. Just an example of how the ordinary things are sometimes the ones worth paying most attention to.

I've decided to go into intensive training, just in case playing the maraca becomes an Olympic sport.

Actually, this picture was taken to go with others on the theme of exercise. I estimate that I burned 14 and half calories while taking this picture.
