500+ pics

Sometime last week, I uploaded the 500th photo from my increasingly unsatisfactory camera phone. For party people, wooden eagles, random junk and Gary, all context-free and unexplained, go ahead and check it out. Shown here: mysterious me making deadly Oriental use of Shannon's first knitting project.

Did you know the typical field garb of the ninja was not black, but a dark indigo? It's true; in low-light conditions (starlight, moolight, lanterns in the distance) black is too high-contrast. Another advantage of an indigo outfit was that with the hood removed, the ninja's suit was simply the typical coverall of a peasant farm laborer. This was handy, because most ninjas were farmers: entire agricultural villages were cover identities for ninja clans.
