OK, this is the first time I ever looked this up. The population density in the small-to-mid size town I live in is 1,780 people per square mile. That's not counting the much larger county it's in which has less population.

Dolina, do you have a lot of hills or mountains in Manilla, or is it more flat-ish? I'm guess that there are lots of islands near you?

SteveC, are you in the mountainous west of the state, or the flat-ish east side? It's quite a beautiful state. I daresay your mountains are just a "tad" higher than ours! :ROFLMAO:
In my part of Manila it's hilly. No where as flat as in Southwest Florida. North east from me is where Sierra Madre . Directly south of me is an active volcano. Directly east of me is an extinct volcano. We have more than 7,000 islands

Yeah, your mountains go "kaboom" whereas the ones in Colorado don't.

On the other hand, we aren't that far away from Yellowstone...which really goes kaboom, when it wants to.

I'd like to post one photo of my new kitty, Ollie, with a (hopefully) funny caption for each day of this 2020 Advent season (Nov. 29 through Dec. 24) to make a "Jolly Ollie Advent Calendar". For those interested, I hope you like it and you are welcome to comment or post your own interesting photo and caption.

Around June we got Ollie from our friend Lori when he was 6 weeks old. At that time I was using my Olympus EM1_II and lenses to take the initial photos I'll post here. Later I got the Canon R5 and RF lenses which are used for most of the remaining days. All photos are handheld without flash. While I'm just an amateur photographer and no comedian, I'll do my best in hopes of making you laugh (or at least smile a little). ;) All comments/poems are mine, unless credited below.

(I thought my boxes were safe stacked high, up to the ceiling)

"OK, here's the deal:
YOU can have the camera,
but I get the boxes! "

Most every morning, we enjoy reading the morning newspaper.
Most every morning, Ollie gets "wrapped up" in it, too!

Canon R5 & RF 100-500mm f4.5-7.1L lens.

While the 70-200 f2.8 lens would have given a bigger background blur, the 100-500 lens was on the camera since I often try to take bird photos out our window. Since "A photo taken beats a photo missed! ", it's a great thing that this lens goes down to 100mm. ;)
