Shopping for certain items is permitted under the Code of Guys(tm). Beer, for instance. Also bacon. And certain T-shirts.
And LEGO. Or is that just me?

My city in the evening, not long after sunset.



I didn't take this photo myself, but a few of our local community webpages have some terrific professionally-shot pictures of the city and they're worth sharing.

Plus: It's not just about those items: If the "man-chair" (near the women's dressing rooms) comes with a TV and service (but not with a only one beer per customer-policy), you women are allowed to take us shopping in that store any time!

In that case, you looked good too.

I think there should be such a chair for women aswell. I hate shopping with most people. I usually buy stuff without trying it on because I am always in a hurry.. But when I go shopping with some people they can stay in the same shop for 30 minutes.. just to browse.. I only do that in bookstores or dvd/cd stores. Or.. cake places.. At least I would do it in cake places if it was allowed. My girlishness pops out when I see souvenir shops though. And petshops.. I love petshops..
I am very girly about shopping, i'm just not that interested in clothes or shoes. Beer and a chair would be amazing when shopping with shoelovers.. If i got drunk enough I might even forget to lecture everyne about how bad high heels are for you.

I don't have a "Code of Guys". I have the Book of Gentlemen, and it allows me to shop for fantastic tailored suits.

I want beer and a chair to accompany me every time I am trapped with someone doing shopping.

How far were you from this bird/these birds when you took these pictures? What kind of zoom lens or camera did you use? That's very impressive quality considering that most small birds like this are extremely skittish and fly off when you get even half as close to them as this appears to be.
NEX-5N, 18-55mm lens. I was a couple feet away. He had flown into a window or something and was a bit stunned. He flew away after a few minutes.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

If anyone visits London and Kensington Gardens, there's a narrow walk where, with a bit of patience and bird seed, you can coax sparrows, tits and robins to flit down and eat from your hand. Quite something. I should try and get a photo sometime.

Damn, she's a beautiful kid--obviously a natural in front of the camera. She'll probably also be wearing a red dress when she gets her first Oscar.
