E is for “Escape!”

I must be an evil Lego owner. I trap these little guys in my ball jars and when my back is turned, they try to escape! Like this one! Is that expression one of exertion or one of "Oh CRAP, I'm found out!! If I don't move, maybeeee she won't notice meeee.....?" Not the case. ...

A is for “Aquaman Photobomb!”

M is for Mexican Food

  Ok, this one isn't an ACEO sized watercolor painting but it IS a watercolor painting nonetheless! I took the shot in Tucumcari, NM by the side of the road, its barely standing, this old neon sign of awesomeness... The last two years I took this trip, it was still standing. I want to do ...
