I took this at the indoor amusement park at the Mall of America in Minnesota. The theme of the park used to be the Peanuts characters – Snoopy, Charlie Brown, etc. A few years ago the mall and the Schultz family couldn’t agree on a new contract, so now the park has a new theme. I’m not sure exactly what it is, but it involves Sponge Bob Square Pants.
I called this picture Sponge Bob Noir because I converted it to black and white to fit the current theme of Out Of Focus, our camera club, and because of the cool shadows.
I was walking in the mall – one circumnavigation of each of the three floors – because it continues to be so hot outside, well into the nineties fahrenheit.
I took the day off today. I have nothing pressing at work, and I felt worse than usual when I woke up. So I called in sick. In spite of feeling so poorly, I reached my 10,500 steps goal today, first time in over a week that I have done so.
Here are more photos I took today:
