I just can't get enough of Merkley??? and his stunning photos. He takes a lot of what he calls "noods," but it's not that. It's the artistry. And his attitude. And his beautiful friends. Stunning stuff. I run his photos through my Google reader and I'm happy whenever they show up. I will tell you many of the photos are NSFW. And you need to drop him a note and get into Club Merkley if you want to see the full spectrum. But I'm telling you, it's worth it.
Pax, can this count as playing along with Favorite Foto Friday (even though it's Sunday)?

I saw this heat map of the homeless on Boing Boing. Wow.
I wore the wrong jacket today and was a little chilled around the edges. I guess I got used to Summer in January. Ah well. Every time I'm cold I think about my grandfather saying, "Many are cold, but few are frozen," his derivation on, "Many are called, but few are chosen." No wonder I'm such a smartass. It's genetic.
Have you seen Elaine Pierson? ABC News in Harrisburg reports:
Police say Pierson went missing last Wednesday. They say she was on a phone call with a friend when she heard something outside. She told the friend she would call him back and went to investigate the noise. She was never seen again. "At this point, we don't have anything leading us to what it might have been," said State Police Trooper Jackie Capriotti, "whether it was somebody she knew or a stranger at her door."Also, a friend of hers (who knows Mrs. iFlipFlop) sent this note along:
Last night I just found out that one of my friends is missing and her house is now a crime scene. Her name is Elaine Pierson, from Marysville -which is outside of Harrisburg, and she has been missing since last Wed. Dec. 27th. They think that foul play is involved because her wallet, credit cards, cell phones and dog were all intact when they found them in her house. Elaine is not one to harm herself or leave without having the dog (Radcliff) taken care of. There are no signs of struggle. Today, the police and fire companies are doing a sweep of the area again to search for clues. There are no leads to follow-up on.... So, I am asking that if anyone has friends or family in the Harrisburg, Lancaster, York areas, please put the word out about Elaine's disappearance.Help find her if you're out there. "Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Elaine Pierson is asked to call the State Police barracks in Newport at 717-567-3110."
