And here's a pic of my good Carl dog from a few years ago. He had his spleen out on Friday and unfortunately the diagnosis is lymphoma. He's 11 now, so we're hoping for the best.

I believe it is, except I have a deeper truer purple one also. This one has a reddish tone in the purple. Not magenta.
It was a homeless clematis left over and on sale. I rescued it.

I am so sorry to hear that! I am hoping for the best for him, too. Such a serious diagnosis has got to be tough for you to accept and prepare yourself to deal with. I know it would be for me.

Fifty hula hoops at once (This photo is for Sarah)

Al, those are awesome! How cool is that Galaxy girl? And I love the multiple hoops, though I like doing more with fewer, myself.

She does appear to be well padded, however...

¡Pinguinos!

The penguin colony on the Península Valdés near Puerto Madryn, Argentina. There are hundreds of thousands Magellanic penguins in the reserve. You walk right through them. The paths are marked and signs warn visitors to stay on the trail, but the penguins can't read and dig nesting burrows right in the trail.

This little fellow is airing his 'pits. They do that a lot.

With cops you have to be VERY specific:

The sign comes out a little small. It says

"Sgt. Lawrence: The captain told me to leave my motorcycle stuff on your desk. I did."

I like to play around with panoramas - taking 3 to 5 shots of a scene and then stitching them together in Photoshop. I've had pretty good luck with it. Often it's really the only way to capture the majesty of a large natural scene.

The view south from Cape Blanco - the furthest west point on the Oregon coast and location of the very cool Cape Blanco lighthouse. Be sure to click on the bar to see the large version.

One neat thing about the Cape Blanco lighthouse is that they let you go all the way up and stand next to the operational rotating Fresnel lens. It's a very large piece of glass. My camera lens was barely wide angle enough to capture most of it.

This is how you take a 1000 watt light bulb and project it out to be visible 28 miles off-shore. That's the bulb and spare that you see behind the lens face.
