An exercise in avoiding packing slips:

'71 VW Super Beetle (baja)
'72 VW Super Beetle (autostick)
'75 VW Thing
'91 Mazda 626
'92 Geo Storm GSi
'93-95 Subaru Impreza 2-door
'94-96 Dodge Caravan
'95-97 Chevy Astro
'96 Nissan 200SX
'96 Mazda MX-6
'97 Chrysler Town & Country
'97-99 Mazda Miata
'98 BMW 328i
'99 Toyota Tacoma
'00 Toyota Camry
'00 Nissan Sentra GXE
'01 Lexus RX300
'03 Toyota Prius
'04 Kia Sedona
'05 Nissan Sentra SE-R Spec V

For convenience, I have chosen to ignore the various U-Haul trucks I've driven. Bolded means it was my car; Italicized means family car.

nurrwick gets bored

When I get bored, I go places. Today, I went to places I have already been, apparently in the hopes that I would see something new and exciting while there. I guess maybe I did? I don't know, I also made sure to use several of my lenses - 10-17 fisheye, 14, 16-45, 43, 50/4 macro, and 77. That's a lot!

I've been told this one is probably too dark, but I like the contrast... hopefully it looks better on other monitors than I fear it might.

crazy flower
Craziest flower I've ever seen.

purple shamrock
The sun was PERFECT on these flowers. Purple shamrock is also quite cool.

And here's the rest of the gallery. I probably got greedy with the contrast on most of them. It's been a long weekend and I'm not sure my eyes are working correctly, but whatever.

out for a walk

I ended up with a tiny, tiny tick on my ankle, but I think at least a couple of the results were worth it:

indian pipes 1


indian pipes 2

That last one is the last shot I'll take with my AF 360FGZ flash. Mostly because when I tried to put it back in the pouch i'd been using for it, I missed and more or less threw it at a root. It doesn't "work" anymore; it turns on, but the display is cracked, the front housing is dinged, and the ready light just blinks. Awesome!
