Wow, this guy's been around awhile. My favorite one is the stiletto on the stove. If you squint, it looks like it's melting.

Kathryn said...

I love the black and white classic car photos, especially the last one, but the ones with the monkeys creeps me out.

We have an obscure animal park, which is basically a husband and wife that have dedicated lives to saving "rescued" exotic animals that are no longer desired or wanted.

Most of the chimps used in movies and photos are under 5 years old; when they get older, smarter and larger and more muscular, they are they are no longer "cute", much harder to handle and even dangerous because they have human emotions and attachments with animal instincts.

Love the motel picture, hate the chimps, and that heel can cause arthritis! Black and white pics are lovely though
