My name is Lizzy Tex Borden. I like to take photographs. Some may be interesting, some may be
boring and some may be downright terrible. All of them will enlarge to the size I intended when right
clicked on and opened in a new window. It's all about fun and good times. Savvy? Please excuse my grammar.

Another picture from my trip to the Autry Museum of Western Heritage
at Griffith Park, California. The above awesome hat was worn by Yakima
Canutt (11/29/1895 - 5/23/1986). Mr. Canutt was the first person to actually
choreograph stunts so that they were safe for stunt folks to perform. He is a
legendary stuntman and there is so much more to this person than I could
ever write here. I unfortunately do not know the hat's
maker or anything else about it.
Just a picture I took with my little camera of the moon. I like
how this picture (at least to me) makes it look like a big thing
really hanging up there in space. Too often I look up and see the
moon as just a one dimensional circle shape glued to the sky.
Back in 2009 right before the science-fiction movie "District 9" was
released, they posted these signs at the entrance to theater restrooms.
Everybody was all like, "Just what in the heck is this all about?!"
As it turns out, it was about a movie featuring a race of aliens who came to be
stranded on present day Earth. Prejudice by humans ensued and the aliens were
relegated to living in ghettos. They were not even allowed to share our restrooms.
But trust me, that was for the best.
The movie was full of symbolism. You know how that goes.
But it was a good show.
