    Wow! Great!

    A couple pet pics:

    Lily is nearing 15 years old, and her walks have needed to be shorter because her hips are not strong, but she does love being in the sun.

    There were times when she was younger that I was certain I had all 101. ;)

    She's a black bear and we were probably closer than we should have been, especially with cubs in the tree with her.

    Shandee, nice pics. When I first read your name, I thought you were Shameless McBundy . I'm like, ”I didn't realize Shameless got married. :D

    ^:lol: Lovely photos, Shandee. I especially love the one with the squirrel. Were you able to get that close, or did you use a telephoto lens?

    This was my first day playing with my new camera. Its just a point and shoot model, but I'm really pleased with the clarity of the photos!

    @ Gryffindorian...thanks! its good to start my online morning with a giggle! :lol:

    @ macloudt...thank you! I actually was able to get close to him, I think he is fairly used to people. He circled our bench several times while we ate some snacks. Hubby tossed him a nut from our trail mix and he was happy to pose for photos.

    @ Alienesse...thanks! Your pics are great too. all of these recent nature photos have inspired me to walk/hike more (and to bring my camera when I do!)

    Cheers!

    My friend owns a bar in Brooklyn that's been slowly growing in fame among the geek crowd because it has a TARDIS in it! Last night I went to a Doctor Who premier party at my friend's bar, here are some of the pics:

    For the occasion I made this skirt and top -- drying on the floor in this picture. The colors look a little off because my phone camera sucks:

    Close up of the detail:

    Just a litte drunk after the show:

    The TARDIS in my friend's bar:

    It is bigger on the inside...it's the bathroom! Here is the inside (it has also been autographed inside by Matt Smith and Karen Gillan):

    There's something kind of retro about your outfit.
