we really got to get you a Goth Girl Gig soon.  Youre really starting to 
scare me, with all these straight shoots lately.  ;-)

went on a riverboat cruise yesterday that left from a botanical gardens. the 
riverboat cruise was emminantly forgetable -- it consisted of me staring at 
enormous, lumpy posteriors of about 40 people pressed up against the glass 
making cooing noises at what apparantly were large bits of flotsam streaming 
into the rivers from storm drains while i sat in my seat able to see nothing 
sadly neglected, donut fed rump as far as the eye could roam.
the end could not come swiftly enough. but when it eventually did, i 
through the botanical gardens snapping away with the leica d200 and a 
100mm 2.8 macro that i got on ebay for $40. while these all SAY "bee", none 
them are actually of honeybees. there is a bumble bee in there with some 
pollin saddles, but most of the rest of them are flowers.
if you tell anybody i was photographing flowers, we're gonna have to step 
just so we're clear on that.
