Streets Saturday for Week 21

Another week of shots off the mobile. Its just so darn convenient and faster to reach for something in my pocket than in my bag. Also, its a lot less conspicuous in a hospital where a couple of these were taken. Yes, Im fine. I was just there for a blood screening and MMR vaccination.

So, photos were taken and here they are:
