yes, that's me in all my unshaven, unshowered glory. i clone stamped the booger out of my nose.

i was at my local coffee shop tonight and sitting outside when all of a sudden this bird came out of nowhere and landed on my shoulder.

it turned out that he was the pet bird of the guy working on his computer behind me. why this man had a pet bird with him at the coffeeshop, i don't know. i have learned not to ask such things.

so, it's a crappy picture but it's a slice of life nonetheless.

Not crappy at all. It's very cool as a matter of fact -- especially since you cloned the booger out. That was right kind of ya :)

Crappy or not it is sooo funny- you add that bit of humor to all your images...you remind me of my son- uh-oh !

I've seen this happen before, LOL. Fun shot.
10/10/2007 05:52:52 AM
LOl funny story did you take this yourself?!

It looks like that bird is eying your neck. Great story!
10/09/2007 05:15:59 PM
You look pretty calm and collected. I would have had a screaming fit if a bird landed on my shoulder. That aside... fun slice photo! (Dude, the booger story was TMI.)

So, muck is now the bird magnet, eh? Maybe it was the unshowered glory he was after. :) I really like the perspective of this.

At least you had the wear-with-all to get the booger out of your nose. Oh, wait... you had to clone it out. Too bad.

Nice bird.

So it is true what you said on your profile page about children and small animals loving you. ;)
A pretty decent shot too, especially as it's spur of the moment. I like the bit of blur.

I like the vignette around you. That's some kind of colorful bird!! You're cute, even with a little stubble. ;~D

Well, at least he was polite enough not to drop a load on your shoulder. Polly want a biscotti?? :-)
