china through the ages


This life size sculpture in bronze has something to do with China through the ages. I suspect the artist was a guy!

misty morning


A misty day driving back from the North Pole. We could have traveled under the mountains to avoid the mist - but I did not want to take the chance of running into a Balrog!

boxing day


If truth were told this is a more Christmas like image than the ones I have posted over the past few days.

christmas eve


A shot taken Christmas Eve in Ontario. Wishing you a happy holiday, happy Christmas, or a happy whatever nice thing this season represents to you.

dundurn


Dundurn Castle: Can you notice anything strange about the image?

An older shot with the Canon 5D.

don't blink

I did not realise that the angel in the picture yesterday was a “weeping angel” (an alien life form capable of time travel). How was I supposed to know—the eyes were not covered?

Anyway my brother-in-law Laurence blinked and suddenly he was transported into the future. Luckily Laurence got a message to me by posting it in my blog in the future and backdating it so we can see it (see his message in yesterday’s comments).

So today’s post is for Laurence: Hey Laurence there is a message in today’s photo from “the doctor.” So all you have to do is find a metal weeping angel and blink – then you will be in the past. Of course you will probably not wind up on today’s date but will overshoot and wind up several years earlier, but all you have to do is hang around enough years until yesterday comes around again then find yourself and shout “don’t blink” at the right moment and that should then fix things.

If that works I will see you shortly, and you will see me in a few years

thingy


Not sure what this is - it is something I saw on a train when exploring Hamilton - I suspect it is a "thingy"

happy birthday daniel


This shot was taken of Daniel when he was about Two and a Half, on Dartmoor, England. To me, he still looks the same today. It is already tomorrow (your birthday) where you are in China Daniel - happy birthday.

capitoline wolf

The Capitoline She Wolf who legend says rescued the twins Romulus and Remus who founded Rome. Hear the story here.

capitoline venus


A picture I took of Venus in the archeological museums in Piazza del Campidoglio, on top of the Capitoline Hill in Rome, Italy. The picture does not really do the sculpture justice.

wot - no christmas visit!


I was going to try and get to China to see Daniel for Christmas – but too much work and looks like I can’t make it – will miss him!
