New hobby...nerd alert!!!

Okay, so I will begin the post by making it clear that I in no way wish to dispute that I am totally nerdy about some things....geeky even. For example, when I lived in D.C. a friend came to visit and we spent the entire weekend in 100 degree + 100% humidity chasing around town to find and photograph the donkeys and elephants (50 of EACH)!! (No that's not me and D in the photos...ours are better!)

Needless to say, I am a big fan of street art.

So, here in Paris we have "Space Invaders"- basically little mosaics that look like they come straight out of a Nintendo game that pop up everywhere on the side of buildings. I have been seeing more and more of them lately so I have decided to take pictures and see how many I can find! Looks like someone has beaten me to it, but it will still be plenty of nerdy fun for me!!! Woohoo! Do I have too much time on my hands??? :)

Here are a few to start...
