I have an Instagram account. The Instagram app lets me take pictures with my iPod and then apply pretty filters to them. So I have decided to start posting some of those pictures here.
This is a picture of my dad photographing a chameleon at the Cotton Exchange ice cream shop in Wilmington, NC. My parents had come to visit me for a weekend, so we went to the Cotton Exchange, which is essentially a shopping mall of local businesses. We bought a few souvenirs at a pottery shop and then decided it was time for ice cream. This chameleon apparently also thought it was time for ice cream. My dad had a lot of fun sneaking up on the little guy to get pictures.
On a different topic, I need ideas for a name for my little travel buddy here. He is a teensy pocket-sized garden gnome.
UPDATE: The gnome’s name is now Jimmy. In an earlier version of the post, I tried to write the word “him,” and spell-check corrected whatever typo I made into “Jim” instead. But I think he’s more of a Jimmy. Thanks, spell check!
