    my dog actually walking towards the camera when ive got it to my face(he usually looks like he was abused by a camera in a former life and cowers away from it, lol)

    a spider that was stalking me at a motorcycle track in houston

    mano was all into diagonal pics, so i had to join in on the fun
    !P7100036 by Gubrz, on Flickr

    these girls had on the craziest brightest non matching colors ever, and yet none of my color pics looked good at ALL... so i cropped heavily and PP to death and got something decentish
    !P7100051 by Gubrz, on Flickr

    this ladys outfit and hat were screaming at me to way overdo the contrast on this one

    this man was VERY happy to have his photo taken. he smiled for a LONG time, so i kept taking photos, as i didnt want to disappoint him, lol
    !P7100114 by Gubrz, on Flickr

    this man was orig a bit closer to the window edge, and not so much in the middle of the bricky rock section. i had just shut my camera off, and then he stopped, i turned it on, and by the time it started up to snap, he had scooted n adjusted and wound up not looking as interesting with his reflection(which was the orig intent)

    !P7100160 by Gubrz, on Flickr

    this pigeon was not photoshopped into the frame... no matter what i did to the photo in PP, the pigeon came out looking faked! lol

    !P7100253 by Gubrz, on Flickr

    hookem horns, or something... lol
    mano loves the longhorns
    !P7130513 by Gubrz, on Flickr

    i liked this one, as it didnt show her face, and had the long swoop from the cart behind her coming from her nose area.. reminded me of a mardi gras mask
    !P7100083 by Gubrz, on Flickr

    GNOMEY! At franklin bbq in austin... we stood in line from 9am till 11 when they opened... it was nuts, hot, humid, and the food was GOOD, but not 2 hrs in line good! tho the lemon pie was FANTASTIC... they bring them in from a pie shop tho... lol

    leaving downtown for the day
    !P7120382 - Version 2 by Gubrz, on Flickr

    these guys had on brand spanking new red hats... they were ridiculously vibrant... i cant seem to tone them down without something else looking faded... so yes.. they look super overcooked red... but they were super overcooked red irl as well...

    !P7130455 by Gubrz, on Flickr

    I guess one side effect of packing around that big, heavy Nikon is the biceps workout you get.

    Lots of great shots here...thanks for sharing!
