    Turns out, I slept threw my alarm today and ended up missing class :( But, I salvaged the day by going to a park we have here up on a hill over the ocean. I got a few shots. These are a couple of my favorites.

    Thanks for taking a look.

    The first 4 are of a little guy that just stole my heart. These little critters were running around everwhere on the cliffside, but none (save him) stuck around long enough for a shot. He, however, was quite a little ham.

    1 My favorite shot from the day...

    6 Bird of Paradise (I'm not sure I like how it fits in the frame, but there's plenty of them around here, and I can re-shoot it sometime).

    What a cute little squirrel! #5 is neat, but would be better if you straightened it out (at least for me!). #6 is a really cool shot, too, but I think I'd like to see more of it.

    Thanks. For #5, that's the way it actually curves when you're standing in front of it. I agree it would be better if it were straightened out, but I do not have the software to do it. I have some of #6 that are farther out, but it looked odd, so I choose to post that one.

    I take far too many pictures in general, then have a hard time selecting the best from the group.

    Thanks everyone :)

    I think I've taken better landscapes than 5 before. I have a hard time with them, I think because I much rather prefer animals or people as subjects. They also look horrible (such as #5 IMO) when they're resized and the blocks of blue get stuck together. But oh well ;) Lol.

    I'm going to be getting a new computer soon, thank goodness. I'm on my roommates right now and the colors are DURASTICALLY different on her monitor than when I edit them on my laptop... I'm not sure which is the "correct" version -- but I'm anxious to be able to set up an ACTUAL work station and keep things consistant ;) Sorry in the mean time if the colors are ... harsh?
