So up to the pump I pulled today, and there was this pigeon that wouldn't move and it wasn't fake. Turns out it was standing its ground at the summit of large bags of corn kernels. It reminded me of that squirrel in the movie Ice Age and how it lived for acorns.

It's funny because as I'm driving around looking for photos, I sometimes just hope that some guy will be sitting outside carving wood or something and on last Thursday, that's just what this guy was doing. He was also fun to talk to. Plus, his name was also Keith so he was extra cool.
"I'm 77 so I don't get around so well. I can still make it down here though. I come here all the time to putz around. The lake relaxes me and it's a good spot," he said. "I'd like to teach my kids how to do it, I've got five kids, three of them boys, but no one seems to have time. Everything's hurry, hurry, hurry, " Keith continued. "I've got a grandson but he's got a girlfriend and you know how that is. He's with her 99% of the time," he explained.

Driving through Royal Oak I was surprised to see this car next to this car shop just because they both looked circa 1960's. I've never been happy with the composition of this photo but I only had the 50mm on me and to square up everything I would've had to stand in a busy road. This is another film shot which makes it fun, i've been using some film lately because Wal-Mart processes it and puts it onto a CD (around 6-7 MB/ ea. photo) for less than $5.

So I recently got back from a trip to Houston to see my Monica. It was an AMAZING time and we did tons of stuff. Zoo, aquarium, mall, ate cheesecake (our fav), I had costa rican Mahi-Mahi, hard rock cafe, the list goes on. However, across from her apartment in a Shell gas station parking lot was this place called Taco Jose. It was just a little stand on four flat tires but the tacos it served were the BEST I've ever had. I'm telling all who read this, it's not crazy to move to Houston just for these tacos, they're that good. They come with a bag of limes, and an assortment of salsas. Fourth meal my ass.
The one of her being stared at by a ground hog was at the Houston Zoo which was also amazing. The place was huge and was like a jungle. I love wondering what the ground hog is thinking as it looks at her.

This is a fella named Joe that I met today. He was just really cool. He was 72 and he's driven tractors for the better part of his life. Although he's from a rural area, he told me he married a city girl. It's nice meeting fun people like this on assignments because it keeps me from getting TOO focused on what I'm doing and helps me laugh a little bit.
