My wife and son are on Spring Break. They sent this to me this afternoon...



The Greatest City on Earth, from Griffith Observatory.

Not too bad for an iPhone picture.

Cool photo!

And here in NYC, spring has finally sprung:

OMG I am so freaking pissed off with flickr. I have been using them for years. Now you can only post photos that are public, but even then they seem to disappear and be unavailable at times.
I forgot to respond to this. I started using Flickr a few months ago and I haven't had any issues setting photos to private. That's my default, in fact. Is the option not appearing for you anymore? I just updated my photostream a day or two ago and the option was still there for me.
The option is there, but now you have to make your photos public in order to post them to a forum. Previous to this you could post things to a forum that were set to private. As my default is private I have to change them to public to post and IF I was posting in all different kind of places it would mean anyone clicking on a pic could see all my public ones which is problematic for some people.

Supposedly they have fixed this but so far it doesn't seem to be the case.

Gorgeous shot. I scrolled down about as far as the building roof and caught myself saying Griffith Park out loud.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Went to the beach today, these jellyfish are everywhere. You can see them swimming off piers on their own, and they are frequently in the shallows. I hauled this one out of the waves to take a photo of it (it was dead), I swear it weighed at least a kilo. It was hugely chunky and solid with a lot of visible organs (?) inside of it.

That's my foot next to it, to show off how huge it is. I saw dozens of them. They are Blue Blubber jellyfish.

Half of me is going "ick!" at the thought of you hauling one anywhere, and the other half of me is all "Cool!" What does it feel like?

There was a really cool Jellyfish exhibit at the Shedd Aquarium here that we went to in the fall. I had no idea there was such a range in size.

I love the "ZOMG this isn't what it looks like!" expression on the dog's face.

Cool jellyfish pic, teacake. I've never personally seen them wash ashore right in front of me but I've seen them floating offshore and was impressed by their almost extraterrestrial eeriness.
