I am proud to report this is how I cut the plants in my "yard" -- though, really only the kinds of plants that can easily survive on their owns. The ones that need daily care have a tendency to die quickly under my "supervision" (and it's not even summer yet!)... so, sadly, the "green thumb" is sadly not a characteristic I can claim for myself.
At times, when colleagues are on vacation, it happens that one cannot stand the sheer emptiness of their seat any longer. At such times, certain components floating (literally) around the office can be used to make a life-size, completely realistic and legit copy of said colleague. Dr. Frankenstein would be nothing short of proud.
When I saw these motorcycle cops approaching, I half expected someone important to follow along in a limo -- but no. Just a bunch of "San Jose's finest" merrlily riding along, shamelessly grinching the innocent bystanders out of a possible celebrity sighting ;).
Some call it French toast. For others, it's the world's best-hidden Easter eggs. You be the judge.
As I've mentioned before, I'm a home improvement store nerd ;) Today we had something to buy there again, so we took the opportunity to window shop for tiles we're not going to buy :)
Mmmmmh. Breakfast for dinner! Is there anything that doesn't get better when combined with bacon?
Now, besides the awesomeness that is bacon, I am quite sad how f-ed up the color (hello, red!) is on my camera phone. I wonder if something broke or it it's just the phone's inability to handle indoor lighting? Hmmmmmm.
This ad I saw today in a local Greek restaurant's window would not fly in Germany (read: cause a public outcry). Who can tell me why? (Bonus points if you're not German and still get it ;))
These concrete plates could come straight from a management seminar.
Seen in San Jose, CA.
Two items you probably couldn't have found in unmarried Fred's apartment ;) A candle next to a miniature Eiffel Tower. This is a three-exposure HDR shot, which not only brings out the glittery candle, but also gives the Eiffel tower a magical glow. Another thing I really like in this shot is the reflection next to the candle, which (I think) comes from the glassy candle holder.
