Afternoon in Palos Verdes

Don't say you haven't been warned!

Pieds panés autorisés :)

Lots of pelicans hovering. Hard to snap a good pic though!

This crow kept flying around, waiting for me to get a decent shot.

Weird and beautiful rock flowers.

More gorgeous flowers.

Pretty sea urchin!

Watchoo lookin' at?

This fish was really funny. He didn't seem too happy to have his picture taken.

Gradually getting more irritated...

Tell me, M'am, what exactly are you looking at?!

Marine Life Pictures

Seems to be my specialty to take hundreds of pictures when I go somewhere, and then proceed to forget all about them for the next six months or so... So here are a few of my favorite pictures from my last trip to the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, CA (Nov. '08).

A patchwork of sea urchins, starfish and other pretty creatures.

One of the sea lions. Sad to see them in captivity, but at least they are very well taken care of.

Dancing medusas.

Sea urchins and bubbles.

Starfish wants out!

Chocolate Cat

So Miss Chewie does look black, doesn't she? Which is why I always have such a hard time taking good pictures of her... it takes a miracle for retarded me to maneuver the light well enough to get a decently exposed photo:

Every now and then she gives in and agrees to pose to please the silly human. ("Let's look thoughtful and melancholy, and maybe I will get a treat out of it!")

( All I can see is her Chewbacca lips)

When she poses in the sun, however, my black kitty turns into...

Chocolate Cat!

Her fur is so many different colors... deep chocolate brown, black in places still, smoky grey on her belly and armpits, white patches on her chest and tummy... Simplicity is for suckers ;)

The lady's latest favorite toy:

And look at this chocolate toe-fluff!

Flower Power

Mew's not sure about being a Flower Kitty...

Isis is pretty sure everyone will make fun of her when they see this.

Chewie thinks of it as camouflage while spying on the birds.
Wicket has eluded the Flower Power so far... but not for long, I promise!!

Le philosophe

Je résiste à l'envie d'assortir cette photo de calembours et jeux de mots divers, variés, et plus ou moins vaseux... mais quand même, une tête de chat philosophant, décapitée, sur la moquette... J'aime bien :)
Et puis si vous voulez y aller quand même de votre petit jeu de mots malin, n'hésitez pas, je suis amateur!!
PS: une tête peut-elle être décapitée? Ou simplement séparée de son hôte?

Pretty in Pink

Almost forgot to put up Her Ladyship's romantic portrait... Soeur Anne, ne vois-tu rien venir?

Queen Isis

You know, it's hard to be the Queen... constantly sought after, disturbed, pursued... even in your own castle.

Having to be pretty even when you are sleepy...

Where can a lady hide to have some privacy???

Poor Isis... life is ruthless.
