Richmond Colour Run

 As you can see, a whole lot of happy faces here. This was a 5 kilometre fun run for charity. No time limits, just start in white and end up as multi-coloured happiness. I ran the race last year for time, this year just for the fun of it, stopping for the in-run pics. I didn't have a Nikon body to use this year, so I used my emergency backup, a Canon 10d. It held up well and was reasonably accurate in focus. A lot colder this time around than last one, but the results were well worth it.

Sunny Day

Been meaning to post this pic for a while. Sunny day in Belize. Clear water, lazy sailboats, pretty much paradise.

I'm still here!

Sorry for the lack of updates, the new house, spring, yard work, etc have kept me away. But I am still alive and kicking. 
Here is my new friend, Argo.
Argo is a Roughneck Monitor (Varanus rudicollis) a wonderful species of Monitor lizards. He's shy, yet friendly, and highly intelligent (for a lizard anyway) and doesn't get too big. Currently he's about 1 foot snout to vent, and another foot for tail, and will reach (with tail) perhaps 5-6 feet.
Once the house is settled, and all the moving and unpacking (and sorting and and and...) is done, I'll get back to my vacation. Sufficed to say Belize was a blast and I look forward to going back again.
