New surf dudette

Predlet 1.0 has taken her first steps into being a surfing dudette. Our apartment (thanks to it being our friends place) is fully loaded with beach kit and toys including a boogie board. So Predlet 1.0 (and 2.0 though less so) got to try it out. I also got a chance to get my kodak waterproof HD camera a little wet too. Having internet access and a some siesta time also meant I could play with the video and pictures just after we got back from the beach.
This was the bit of fun I put together, using the imovie action movie trailer :)

It's like being in a cartoon

Untitled, originally uploaded by epredator.

I grew up watching cartoons like Top Cat. So whenever I go to the US it is always interesting to see the street furniture that in my younger years I only ever saw as a cartoon.
The fire hydrant is one such piece. I see them and I think they are drawn like an augmented reality model layered on my view of the world.
Of course it is what you get used to. I guess London's red buses, or our old telephone boxes may have the same impact on people from elsewhere.
What is your cartoon become reality icon?
