Yes, after a well deserved two week hiatus, Shooting Suburbia is back with a fresh outlook, recharged batteries and a highly original yet slightly skewered post for you to partake and become jealous of, because hell, it is winter, it is cold, and damn it, I need something warm to look at.
Joe Camel! Yes, one of the highlights of the Extravaganza was a petting zoo that featured Joe Camel and a menagerie of others. However, since I like Joe Camel (the character, not the cigarette, although an interesting factoid for you is that a prior prototype of Camel cigarettes was called Murad), I decided to take not one, but two pictures of Joe Camel.
Picture two of Joe Camel! Who seems to thinking about spitting in that other photographer's camera! Another interesting factoid is that the local Three Kings Day parade that is held every year in Hartford CT features Joe Camel and two of his brethren, Joe Dromedary and Jane Dromedary.
In case you were wondering what was the first coolest spot I visited that day, it was the town library. Need I say more?
