…and then I saw a shrub shaped like a dick | Fetch My Flying Monkeys
Everyone needs a fleet of flying monkeys to rip the stuffing out of the annoying people in their lives

Doing my part to stimulate the economy, look at what I got!



Nikon


So today we took it out for a test drive.



First we stopped at a friend’s farm that has goats. Because what would a picture taking road-trip be without goats? Kind of sucky, that’s what I think. So, let there be goats!

Cadillac Goat


The little one above was named Cadillac Coupe de Ville. That’s what I was going to name MY first born (if I had had one–God forbid). Don’t you just hate it when the unique baby name you have chosen becomes popular?


Then it was on to another friend’s horse farm. Because the only thing more awesomer than goats is horses.



Horses


These horses have seen cameras before because they were all vogueing harder than a Hollywood has-been fresh out of rehab.

I really love my new camera. The only thing that could make it more awesomer is if it came with a Mr. T application that screamed photography tips at you as you used it. “I pity da fool that don’t take da lens cap off, sucka!”


The following is my favorite photo of the trip:

Then on the way home we stopped in Bishopville at the home of a local celebrity. This is topiary created by Pearl Fryer. He’s the Edward Scissorhands of Bishopville.

He creates freeform topiary from geometric shapes and apparently forms from nature. Take this particular bit of shrubbery:

And since nothing could be more awesomer than penile boxwood, we decided to call it a day.

    Wow, I love your photos! Even the penile one!
    Oh, a friend of mine has a GPS system that has Mr. T as the voice! It will yell things like “I said turn right not left fool!” I want one!!!

  2. Shelly says:

    I FREAKIN’ love the title to this entry!! How random is that? Running into a pecker bush? LOL!
    Love the photos.
    And I’m sorry your baby name got all popular. LOL!

    Love all the photos. Specially the horses. And I like the way the goat looks us direct in the eyes, he’s freaking me out a bit. Great camera. Just been out buying filters and weird gadgets for mine. Sold to me by a greasy haired kid about 16 years old who made me feel stupid. I wish I could have told him my gadgets were to help me shoot crooked penile topiaries. That would have foxed him.

    Thats one big penis tree/bush, whatever. Who is the local celebrity who lives there?
    Ryan Seacrest?
    Cool camera, nice pics, although I too think goats are a little creepy.

    Beautiful camera work, Laura.
    You could have spared me the goats, they reminded me of the demon spawn generating the vile (humongous) tax bill sitting in my mailbox today.
    Loved the shrub – a little green penis goes a long way for grins!

  6. Great pictures of the horses…of course I may be a little biases. Looks like you’re having better weather than we are, too!
    But, about the shrub…

  7. Joe the Blog Stalker says:

    Great photos. I like the ones in your Flickr too. The goats do have evil eyes.

  8. Laura says:

    Thanks everyone! And yes, the goats are evil looking but they were actually quite friendly and little comedians.
