January view of a canal in Amsterdam.

This was taken on Fuji FP-100C SILK instant color print film. I do not like it as much as the 600 series film from Poloroid. There is dappled texture to these prints where the Poloroid prints were creamy and smooth. Still beggars can't be choosers.

Revenge of the Spanish Mullet

Yes ladies and gentlemen, the Spanish Mullet still exists nearly an entire year later after my first in-person sighting. I could not be more pleased.

This lovely specimen (at left) is of the common sub-species mullitus rastalus common among Spanish mullets found in La Rioja and Pais Vasco. He was found in good condition at a local rock and jazz club in the city of Logroņo.

The current operating theory is mullitus rastalus may be found with increasing frequency depending on how close one gets to the city of Bilbao. Independent survey data from other sources has suggested that this theory may in fact be true. The theory is summarized in the below graphic.

Any additional details on the phenomenon of this "laid back" hair style would be greatly appreciated.
