Please join me in this photo tour of things that have not been alive in a long time. I just bought a new camera, and today is the day to take it out of the house for the first time and see what it's capable of. I'm not a photographer like “Boris”, or Clacky...I just like to shoot things for the hell of it. Maybe I should have studied photography and became a world renowned bikini photographer. Next lifetime, possibly?
Anyhow...here is my attempt at a “Boris”-like post, enjoy!

We won't be seeing these old bones for 5+ years.
The rest of the pictures here are all from various spots in the museum. If you ever get a chance to go, check it out!
5:27PM—Is that monster on the left, giving the monster on the right, the middle finger?

5:57PM—Saw this friendly guy on the way up to the 2nd floor.
6:40PM—A real moon rock!
6:46PM—More old bones!
6:54PM—Poor guy is missing his right foot!
