Toys….

So it’s definitely been put forth by multiple people that I apparently need a new wallet. Quite honestly this makes me somewhat sad. My wallet is something that I enjoy having in my pocket. It makes me smile when I pull it out and think of all the good times that we’ve had together. All the times I’ve gotten us in trouble and then he’s bailed me out.
So, it’s time to choose a new wallet. Suggestions folks, let them start rolling in… show me that you actually read this 😉 I’m thinking of the flat money clip from Oakley shown on this page of their accessories:

So tell me what you think I should get, what stylistically fits my personality, what I wouldn’t get bored with. Holla holla!

Kissed by a…. Cactus?

Yes, I know, it’s not quite as catchy a title as Seal’s “Kissed by a Rose”, but it’s almost as pretty.

Again, this is the artwork of Aaron. For the full deal, click here. The picture was taken on May 10, 2004 with a Canon 300D. The camera had the following settings: EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM. The picture was was taken from approximately 100 yards. Fore more information about this handy dandy lens, check out: Lens Info

Geminid Meteor Shower

So it would seem that I’m going to showcase all of Aaron’s photos for a while… Below is a timed delayed image of the Geminid Meteor shower a while back. The camera used is a Canon 300D with “a butt ton of fancy lenses” as Aaron would say.

For the real deal lucile, click here. This picture was taken on December 14, 2004, at Dripping Springs State Park out in the middle of nowhere.

Mars…

Okay, so I admit, this is a wee bit on the old side, but I thought that it was funny enough to post after Aaron sent me the picture of his Christmas lights. This was taken back when Mars was closest to the Earth in its orbit… back in ummm… sometime recent, like uh, August 23, 2003.

Needless to say, this is Aaron’s old camera (Olympus C-730 UZ), not the new one (it’s very niiiice). For the full size image, click here.

Aaron’s Lights

Yes, I do have friends out side the state of Virginia 🙂 My buddy Aaron from when I lived in West Germany (yay for being an Army brat) pushed this picture to me this evening.

I must say that I thought that it was hilarious 🙂 But you know what, it’s not the size of the lights, its the efficiency of them. Look at how many garlands of lights the other guy wasted and how many Aaron used. Yeah, exactly! Luminescence factor = +10 for Aaron.
Click here for the full size image. This picture was taken on December 21, 2004 from some guy’s driveway. Apparently he wasn’t too happy to have some random guy setting up a camera in his driveway, hence the reason we give him on sharing of the by-line. This picture was taken using a Canon 300D with a “butt ton of fancy lenses.”
