Lake Michigan Flight

This week I'm heading back to Michigan for my official graduation. As I flew over lake Michigan the sun was setting and there was fog on the lake. This resulted in the setting sun's reflection looking like a ball of fire below us. I snapped this picture as we were coming out of the clouds so it's not quite as dramatic, but still reminds me of lava. I would have tried to get more but just as I took this I heard the "Please turn off all electronic devices" announcement.

Movie Madness

Last week we took a trip to one of the most famous movie rental stores here in Portland, Movie Madness. Not only do they have extremely rare videos (some of which you need to put down a $200 deposit to rent) but they have an extremely large collection of movie costumes and other memorabilia. For a complete list check out their website.

Here is a small selection of their movie comstumes display. To the right you can see Danny Kaye's costumes from The Court Jester.

Here is one of two dummy knives use in the original Psycho.

A trip back to the zoo granted some hilarious shots. Here we see Renee slightly worried that she will end up with white poo on her person. That didn't happen (somehow). More funny shots to come.
