Around and About

Early this afternoon, after I left work, I passed a local pizza place and saw several people in various kinds of army fatigues inside. Turns out that the six people were from five different countries: the US, Canada, the Netherlands, Germany, and New Zealand.

As they ordered their meal, I asked one of them whether I could take their picture—not posed, just candid. He agreed. That’s him turning to face the camera in the photo.

Now, outside on the terrace, enjoying their meal:

After I left, I checked out some wild plants nearby and found a bonus: a praying mantis! (Thanks to Phyllis for the correction.) The shot is slightly overexposed, but I like it anyway.
