What is this?

SHADYSIDE NEIGHBORHOOD OF PITTSBURGH -- What is this thing?

 
It's a camera!! A Lytro camera. I can't even explain how it works except that you don't have to focus (in fact you CAN'T focus), and it supposedly takes in all the light it sees and turns it into pixels that you can then fix however you'd like AFTER the picture is taken and downloaded. This is a picture I took with it while at lunch in Shadyside today:

Many staples (and a few nails, for those really heavy flyers) from many past events imbedded into a telephone pole. Apparently if the phone company has to make a repair, they'll just put up a whole new pole.

These are photos of pretty much the same thing taken with my phone's camera:


Both interesting. Or not. It's just a bunch of staples. But it kind of looks like a tree that's been singed.

Here are photos of things I like better than staples. I saw all of these things at lunch, too:

 If mom is "mum" in Australia, is dad "dud?" How about "dude?"
