This New-Fangled Technology

So my cell phone is almost a year old, and it’s the first time I had a camera phone. I know, I’m behind! I was amused at how many funny pictures of my friends that I’ve taken and at how many random pictures that I have. It’s a great opportunity to catch the unexpected. Here are some of my favorites from the latter category:


Close up of a six-foot tall X-mas tree in a store window… made of naked Barbies, hair rollers, and grapes.


Even bookstores need lovin‘.


This is not a funny one, it’s historic. And I was glad to capture it! Too bad it’s, you know, now a parking lot.


Ah yes, I walked into the lab to see this one day, and immediately thought we were under attack from the Daleks


Check out the “Date of Birth” on my grocery receipt, after they checked my ID for my beer purchase. Not only is it not my birthday, but it’s not even close to my age. I got pegged as 16 the other day by a stranger, not 66. (If you’re interested, what I was making was Ukrainian red borscht soup.)


My fellow heathen labmate and I saw that sign while on a work trip and realized we’d best stay away, give the orange sign’s proclamation. You think there’d be more info?

One day I’ll get an iPhone, and these pictures will be awesome.

    I go by the Virginia Statue of Religious Freedom spot most days when I go into VCU. Nice to see a picture out of Shockoe.

    Cool! I didn’t get the other wall with the actual text to come out, so I’ll have to go back with a real camera.
