Turns out I'm a "Modern, Cool Nerd" - some kind of freakish half-nerd, half-geek beast I guess. Take the survey yourself if you're interested....
Modern, Cool Nerd 56 % Nerd, 56% Geek, 30% Dork For The Record:

A Nerd is someone who is passionate about learning/being smart/academia.
A Geek is someone who is passionate about some particular area or subject, often an obscure or difficult one.
A Dork is someone who has difficulty with common social expectations/interactions.

The critter who went for a dawn walk on this beach followed a chaotic path indeed.

Very much a challenge to find "Chaos" for a PhotoFriday entry, especially when I usually look for order and balance when I shoot.

Toowong Cemetary, Brisbane Australia. Sad that some people get a thrill from defacing the resting places of others - with not even a piece of eight to show for it.
Placed 30th (oh well) in the FujiMugs "Movies" challenge.

Known around here as <i>&quot;Christmas Beetles&quot;</i> as they tend to come out around November/December, our summer. Their colourings are just amazing, providing you can get past the fact that they are, after all... bugs.

<br/>Taken for the PhotoFriday 'Symbol' topic. The equipment behind the glass is a Telequipment D83 CRO (Cathode Ray Oscilloscope) that still gets permanent residence on my desk despite being rarely used. It's a geek thing, I guess :-)

In a patch of scrub recently burnt out a colony of ants on a tree trunk encourage their mates to burst the pinata - who oddly, seemed unpeturbed. Taken with a homemade diopter attachment on a Fuji S7000. Placed 7th in the Fujimugs &quot;Festivities&quot; Open challenge.
