The great Depression era musical, Gold Diggers of 1933, is on TCM tomorrow at 6:30 AM eastern time with a repeat showing on February 9th at 10:15PM.

Audiences of the day looking for a couple of hours to get away from their woes found themselves watching a film filled with cynicism and grit.

This up close and personal shot of a Florida alligator was taken during a recent overnight trip to Sarasota. Used my 18-300mm lens (focal length was 210, shutter 1/320 and lens opening at f/13) during a boat ride at Myakka State Park. This dude came close enough to our boat to capture this image.
