They are not things. They are not objects. Neither are they human. Yet they mourn. They love. They dance. They suffer.

Adventures & NiteTime Antics

Another entertaining evening with both enjoying the flight of freedom going from rooftop to greenbelt, playground and palm tree sure had us all laughing and smiling. Our director was kept busy with the boom cam providing us with beautiful camera angles. As the boom cam moved, the paparowlzzi were snapping away vigorously, hence providing us with gorgeous captures. Once again no deliveries were witnessed on camera. Horks in the box later in the day means they are getting treats, so no worries.
