That's a great cartoon, one of the best featuring the dad.

Talking Back Yard? - Action Figures?

When I was in the Boy Scouts, it was always fun to slip rocks into people's packs while they were resting when out on a hike.

Nothing makes you feel foolish more than realizing you have just lugged 10 lbs of rocks about 1000 - 2000 ft. up over 8 - 15 miles.

As I said before, I have absolutely no desire to do that anymore, and camping is not really all that alluring either.

I work too hard during the week to spend my free time wallowing around in the dirt.

Sure I have been to some epic places where a car can't go, but were I really interested in going to such a place in the future, I ain't walkin.

It looks like it was shot in Jim's backyard with one of those tilt shift lenses (not a fan of those images).

I am half expecting to see a G.I. Joe doll or a Tonka truck somewhere.

So did you find the mine shaft, or did it collapse?

There are plenty of mine shafts out in the Mojave Desert - come on out, you can fall into one, or two.

Why not? I think it looks cool in B&W. I have a color version as well.

You should try standup.

Well....For what it's worth, I think the shadows, at least as you have shot them, work well with your shot too!
