Tonight I am nursing one blister on the bottom of each of three of my toes – also known as – watching America’s Got Talent while editing photos from yesterday, here are two I’d like to show you.
1) The giant sparrow:
On yesterday’s almost 12 hour adventure, the fourth theme of the day (11 am – noon) was “expendables”. I hopped in the car – I did a few photos with the car – and headed over to the Athlete’s Village – the Olympic Village Condos. The weather was dreary and drizzly and that place was like a ghost town. I think I saw about 5 people in total. But the whole reason I headed over there was because I remembered an article Kelaine over at the Jolly Ranch sent me last month sometime. I had to see the big birds in person. They are very very cool to see in person. I would highly recommend you go have a look at this artwork commissioned by Myfanwy Macleod. And these days there seems to be no crowds getting in the way of all your bird watching fun, so that’s a bonus.
While I was there, I did get a shot for the “expendables” theme. They have some very cool compost systems placed around the complex that accepts what looked like diapers or underpants. Heh. Underpants compost.
Speaking of underpants, over on the North Shore, I found a sign that didn’t work for the theme of that hour – “The High Road”, but I had to take a photo of it anyway.
I’d never pass the lie detector test on the comment above.
