Great White Shark Fin Statue — FREAK OUT!

81pStY4gMGL._SL1200_

"Jaws" in your best friend's — or enemy's — swimming pool.

Put this in the right place at the right time, you'll make someone wet their pants.

From The Green Head: "It's not safe to go back into the water and now it's not safe to go in the yard, garden, patio, hallway, shower, cubicle, pool, fountain, or anywhere you place this ominously cool new Great White Shark Fin Statue. This giant-foot-and-half tall sculpture of a Great White shark dorsal fin is made from quality resin and realistically hand-painted to seem as if it's swimming along just beneath the surface."  

$44.76.

Catme13/Glass Effect 11 — The still camera

20130714_205949_572-1

Because of technical difficulties I am unable to offer a Glass POV video of last night's Mile race from the Charlottesville Track Club's All-Comers Meet.

Maybe tomorrow.

To fill this slot, then, a couple photos taken randomly from the bunch I've shot over the past few days.

The one up top is of Gray Cat sitting in a window at twilight Sunday; the one below

is her yesterday afternoon.

Sometimes less is more.
