928 - Pacha Mama Van
A brightly colored van (probably, based on the built-in furniture inside) serving as a mobile home to a local immigrant family, most likely from Peru or Ecuador.
Pacha Mama is the modern version of an Incan deity, and the Lorax design would suggest an environmentalist message.

930 - Batter Up!
Softball is always a good idea, even with the 30-mph Candlestick-esque wind blowing from right to left.

941 - Dulles 5-Star Accomodations
Stranded at Dulles overnight by United Airlines. Joy.
I hate airlines; as a friend has told me, "and they seem to hate you right back."
943 - Statistical Outlier
Previous high of views in one day: 710. That peak is at around 11,000 and 12,000. Totally an outlier, when one of my photos was posted on reddit.
944 - Corkboard
A close-up of the corkboard we're working on. It's almost done, and has a lot of corks from Spain (mostly cider and wine) and California (wine). A few champagne, Portuguese, and French corks are dotted around.
One of my favorite sidra llagares is in the bottom right - Sidra Natural M. Zapatero (Nava).

945 - Raptured
...or not. This was what did NOT happen at 6pm on May 21st, shockingly. Or, more accurately, this is a photo taken at 6pm on May 21st mimicking what was supposedly a "certainty" amongst certain cultists and Family Radio Worldwide. Still pretty funny to hear stories about people giving away their life's savings in anticipation, though. Viewed best on white.

Adding just a little greenery to a bunch of grey concrete buildings makes a huge difference.
