Those of you who know me at all know that I'm a big film fan, and I shoot using 4 different formats. This all happened after I got utterly sick of my DSLR, and especially editing on the computer.

But there are moments that the DSLR is made for, that certainly aren't worth a piece of film -- like when you open the lid of a seldom (i.e. never) used toilet and find a frog there:

I've seen many brown lumps in many toilets. But none of them had eyes or toes.

too funny.... I've had this happen to me twice but they were Cuban Tree frogs that would then jump out of the toilet and stick to the wall... very hard to catch.

It looks like a toad to me.

I guess it's better than that story of the woman in NYC who found a python in her toilet!

First of all, I'm in North Carolina, not northern California.

Second of all, I think the frog thought he was in a natural environment. I relocated him to a more mutually agreeable one, i.e. the back yard.
