Day 08 → A photo that makes you angry/sad

My initial thought was to get very serious business about this and find an image that has to do with rape statistics or gender inequality, since those are certainly things that make me sad/angry/want to quit life. But they're not really things you can sum up in a photo and I realized I was putting too much effort into finding pics of things that'll just depress me. So I went the animal route again.

(And yeah, it's two pictures, but they're from the same story.)

Dead animal behind the cut. Nothing gory or too graphic, but sad )

And if you want really scary/sad/angering, here's an interview about pelvic exams performed by med students on unconscious women without their consent.

Yeah, I know this one's a cop-out too because lol, a macro. Does this even count as a photo? And small fluffy animals, who's not cheered up by small fluffy animals? Soulless people, that's who. Boy am I tired. /half-assed reply

Yesterday there was a big family thing down in Maryland and I went with my dad and his fiance (both sisters skipped out, grrr). I only knew about five people there even though we're all apparently related, so that was a little awkward. I won a Skip-It from this little contest we did. Ah, family.

The location was very cool though; a park (national park, maybe) right on the Chesapeake Bay, and our picnic area was right by a fishing pier. My dad's cousin was crabbing and fishing all day and ended up bringing home about three dozen crabs. There was a turtle pond too with a snapping turtle that loved the vanilla wafers we fed him. And! The park has a rehabilitation center for birds that are injured, and some of them can't be re-released into the wild. There's a really cool habitat for a handful of raptors right in the middle of the woods. No attendants, just a series of wood-and-wire enclosures.

Owls. Everyone is fond of owls. )
After we left the family picnic Marie-Claire had a hankering for some crabs so we explored the area a bit looking out for a restaurant. Which was mostly...driving past cornfields. For like an hour. We did find a restaurant overlooking a marina and Dad and Marie-Claire had their crabs. I've never been to a crab place before so I was kinda 0_0 when they dumped a pile of cooked crabs right on the table. They creeped me out. And I don't eat seafood so I was there with my salad and french fries. Idk, I think seafood will eternally weird me out.

And then this silliness happened after dinner, because we're all dorks sometimes.
