It's Gotta Be The Shoes
So this person appears to be dressed at least somewhat professionally. At least I think she looks dressed up a bit, but at the same time I'm a guy, so I don't know the idiosyncrasies of dressing up (in fact most of my outfits wouldn't match if my wife didn't pick them out for me). Anyway, it looks like she's wearing flip flops. So what's going on here? Does she have another pair of shoes in her bag that possibly has heels and she's wearing the flips because they're easier to get around in and more comfortable, or do the flip flops type shoes really constitute business appropriate shoes? And why am I looking at this picture and noticing shoes? What's up with that?
For the detail minded, I snapped this out on the mall in downtown DC around midday. There was a solar power housing exhibit on the mall at the time and that's what you see in the background.

Waiting For Refreshments
Red Light District II
Since people (okay, so far it's not "people" per se and just my other blog contributors, but I can dream can't I?) seemed to like the photo from yesterday, figured I would throw in a bonus one. I think the lights from the vehicle in the background resulted in this picture not having the shutter open for quite as long, so the guy doesn't appear to be as illuminated by the flares as the shot from yesterday (which is what I think made yesterday's shot work). Still, it's the only other shot I have of the scene that isn't incredibly blurred.

Ever wondered what a stranger looks like through the world's largest flawless crystal ball? Yea, me either, but I have these pictures anyway. These were captured at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History.
I briefly considered titling this post "1 / Stranger", but figured I might be the only person on the planet that would find it amusing.

What were you expecting?
At a recent Fall outing with my family we took a hayride to a pumpkin patch. Well, it may have been a pumpkin patch at one time, but now it was just a field with a bunch of pumpkins laying around. I think you could "pick" one and the farm would just replace it to keep up the appearance of the "pumpkin patch". Anyway, the two girls in jeans and tan shirts were the guides, and in this shot they seem to be explaining the concept to some other participants. At least, that's what I imagine is happening. I was too far away to actually hear anything.
