That is a CRAZY picture. I have always wanted to go to an opium den. Seriously.

You know, some drugs have style and some don't. Opium's got it by the pound.

Yep, I like this one a lot.

I thought I'd posted it before, but I don't think I did. I've liked this shot for a long time.

I think a cat is a perfect pet to have in an opium den.

Right? A dog would insist on being walked. A cat would be quiet and listless, just like opium smokers.

May, it always makes me super happy when I open my email and there is a whole long list of alerts that you've commented on this blog.

I started commenting the other day, but Blogger was taking soooooo long and I had to go to work. When I came back there was so much more! It makes me so happy to look at this blog. I come back to it time and time again. I always get so excited to see your responses, and the other comments. It's so fun to talk about pictures!

I sort of hate when there's a couple days when I don't get a chance to hunt down new stuff and add it.
