Bunny at The Boulders_A Waldorf-Astoria Resort_Scottsdale AZThis little bunny lives in Scottsdale, AZ, somewhere on the grounds of The Boulders, a sprawling Waldorf Astoria resort in the Sonoran Desert.  Along with a few friends, Boulder Bunny was enjoying an early December pre-dusk outing on a grassy patch just off the resort’s extensive golf green. I snapped this shot with my friend Linda’s camera, a NIKON D300 with an 18-300mm zoom lens. *covet* [geek on]


Revlon Spiderman Electric Chrome Collection 2014Every once in a while, a collection comes along that really smacks me right in the eye. It doesn’t happen often because most collections are just too big. This one is the perfect size. In fact, I think it could be one bottle smaller. But I digress because what I really want to show you is the swatches. Oooh.. the swatches…. Oh, and no. These nail polishes were not worn by Mary Jane (aka Revlon face Emma Stone) in Spiderman2. This Revlon Spiderman limited-edition nail polish lineup was inspired by Jamie Foxx’s character, Electro.
