    This is a little thing I did for Tshy about a month ago. When I do laundry I like to take a walk through town(its that or sit there and stare at toothless old women). So these are some photos I took of the walk.

    Is it just me or should this say "Dead Inside":

    Just thought this pipework was beautiful in its own way(actually I thought it would make a great black and white photo, look at the bottom for the link to the black and whites):

    Another couple I intended to tweak to black and white:

    This cat has been there since I moved in 4 months ago...

    Black and White Photos I should tweak them in Photoshop a little more and make them better but I'm lazy.

    My favorite:

    That's awesome, especially the black and white. Everything has beauty in it's own way.

    I constantly wish I had my camera on me. I wish I had one of those thin ones so I could carry it in my pocket all the time.

    I see things in photographs sometimes. I look at something and just picture... the picture.

    I wish that I had the time and creativity to see things like that in everyday life. As young as I am, my life is constantly so damn busy that most of the time I just don't think to stop and appreciate the simple things.

    I do that as well. Those are great photos :waytogo:

    mikey, man, you gotta learn to appreciate the small things. Life is so much better if you can see little things. It makes worrying about the big stuff much easier.

    The cat doesn't move because it is dead, and that's why it is still there. Seriously though, cool pics.

    i disagree. i think he is simply taking a nap, and chooses to nap there every day, under the same brick and debris.

    yeah yeah, the point was no one has cleaned it up. I'm sure I'm not the only one to notice it. I like to look at it and wonder how long its been there and how long it will stay. Death, no one noticed, did anyone care? Will anyone ever?
