I went out today with Paula . Had a GREAT girlies day out !
There was no aggression with these birds at all .... i think they are just use to being around people as there were so many people just coming around to feed them bread and crumbs so there was no attacking ... a bit of hissing ...but i think that was mostly at the other scavenger birds that were there ...pigeons ...seagulls....ducks...geese....crows ....magpies .... i really don't like birds but paula took me to this great place in Bray sooo there ya go :)

This baby giraffe is named Stretch. He's 10 days old in this photo. He was 6 feet tall when he was born! Too bad his face was shadowed, but he was doing as he was told about not showing off in front of the humans :)
nudity is an intense phsyical freedom to be nude, to see a nude, to be inspired by sensuality and its' personal meanings. ... subjectively different for each one of us. Objectively - it thrills and delights as the mark of freedom, power, light, life, love and liberty in one human being form.

Meat Cock! An ideal dish for a picnic! :)
I've had this cookbook for years now but had to laugh when I noticed this altogether too literal translation of 'lihakukko'. Either the editors were having a bit of fun or thought the dish really meant cock, not rooster, as the 'kalakukko' recipe was translated as 'fish in a crust' since, I guess, fish have no cocks. :)
I'd love to know how the dish came to be named kukko.

Block 11 was known as the "Death Block". It served several functions, of which the most important was its role as camp jail. Male and female prisoners from all parts of the camp complex were held in this building. Most of these people were suspected by the camp Gestapo of involvement in clandestine activities: attempting to escape, organizing mutinies, and maintaining contacts with the outside world.
Poles from outside the camp who had been arrested for rendering aid to prisoners were imprisoned there too. Followingbrutal interrogations, they were in most cases sentenced to death by shooting. In the early years of the camp The Strafkompanie (penal unit) and Erziehungskompanie (re-education unit) were also held in this block. The prisoners of the penal unit, to which alms all the Jewish men and Polis priests held in the camp at that time were sent on arrival, were assigned to the most back-breaking work; most of them died.
For some time the block also held the Sonderkommando, the special unit of prisoners employed to burn the bodies of the dead.
From 1943 on, Polizeihäftlinge (police detainees) were also held there. These were Poles from the area under the jurisdiction of the Gestapo in Katowice who were suspected of involvement in the resistance movement. They would be held in the block awaiting sentence from a special German summary court. Usually the penalty was death.
In the basement, known as the bunker, were punishment cells where the SS confined pioneers regarded as guilty violating camp regulations. In 1941 prisoners sentenced to eat by starvation were held in the block.
Over the period 3 - 5 september 1941, the SS carried out experiment in the basement with Zyklon B in preparation for the mass murder of Jews: 600 Soviet POWs and 250 Polish political prisoners, selected from the camp infirmary as human guinea-pigs for this experiments were murdered in the block in this way.
joined the very powerful & ultrasecret force of M24 agents, got the first call from the headquarters today. First mission: to make a 'Block'-themed photograph. I tried something with a bottle of vodka blocking my toilet but that didn't work out (yet), so here's a block. (ill see if i can find a 'pushing the envelope' model for a reshoot for M24Diesel ^^)
Minneapolis' infamous, now demolished, Block E, 1973. Porn shops, a steak house, a beauty school, a hellish Italian restaurant, a vegetable market, a post office, a bank, a record shop, a very bad hotel, a bowling alley, an adult cinema, a penny arcade preserved more or less intact as it was in 1935 - it was all here.

Press release image of Slow Photography camera.
The purpose of the Slow Photography camera is to provide a natural stepping-stone between using a mobile phone as a camera before taking the plunge into professional grade digital photography.
The Slow Photography camera has been designed as an alternate route in modern photography and requires the photographer to consider traditional photographic principles such as framing, composition and lens selection. The Slow Photography camera establishes that a mobile phone does not simply have to be a rudimentary point-and-shoot grade camera and takes a literal stance on a mobile phone applications for photography such as 'Hipstamatic'.
The concept for Slow Photography emerged from researching the ties between digital and analogue photography. I established that the processes involved in analogue photography are still relevant even with digital photography being so popular among photographers both amateur and professional. Flickr is undoubtably the most popular photograph sharing social network site among photographers and their statistics show that the Apple iPhone 4 is in the top 3 most used cameras (ahead of Canon's EOS Rebel XSi, second only to Nikon's D90). If people are being exposed to the joys of photography through mobile phones, Slow Photography can provide the creative freedom of an digital SLR with interchangeable lenses on their mobile phone.
To operate, slide the front face open and insert your mobile phone. Turn the lens to select which lens effect you want.
The Slow Photography camera has three lenses; fixed focal length, macro and fisheye. Carefully compose your shot by looking through the viewfinder and push the shutter release to capture your shot.
More images and a detailing video of the Slow Photography camera can be found at www.dmccourt.com.
