They're all more than a bit melancholy, but they're touching, too. And, as you can see in the image above, they're easy on the eyes.

Random aside: Although Odomo hails from San Jose, he currently lives in Seattle. Booyah! Maybe I'll send him an e-mail at some point (after I've had a drink or two)...
