See also Driftwood Scream.

Milo is a very friendly neighborhood cat whose house we walk past on our way to and from the QFC. If he's out, he always comes out to be petted and scritched by Julie, and to headbutt my ankle (in a friendly cattish headbutt). The house has one of my favorite gardens, because his chief of staff does such an excellent job of mixing driftwood and broken pottery in with the plants.

I'm still learning the mechanics of this camera, but it's fun. I've had six rolls developed so far, 72 negatives. (12 negatives per roll.) And, because I guess I'm congenitally incapable of taking a picture, it occurred to me yesterday that I could take two images and put them next to each other, for different views of the same object. But I haven't done that yet.

Love the Wallingford jungle shot! Reminds me of things I saw on Yap. There's something about plants enveloping motor vehicles that I find very beautiful. Then there was the Trabi (cheap East German car) I saw used as a planter in East Berlin ...

Well, that was all the encouragement I needed to go out and take other shots of overgrown cars. The old truck up near Lighthouse, across the street from the face topiaries, specifically.

One of the photographers in the Resonance show at PCNW took pictures of overgrown car bodies. But his were found in forests in British Columbia, and are almost completely covered.
