Surface Up!

This is looking down. Pictures are very interesting when they are looking down.
And they are really interesting when you look straight down!
(That's Escher looking, isn't it?)

December Days in Afghanistan

Flying through these mountains is a bit dicey. But, hey, you're a twenty year old and invicible, right?

Tsukiji (Fish) District, Tokyo

Here's the fish market in downtown Tokyo. Close by the Bay where all the fish are landed. It's a pretty exciting place starting at about 0400. Lots of work to do.

Grandchildren Are Useful!

So, R and B brought their daughters over for an Xmas Tree Splattering. They were pretty good at it.
I think the results speak for themselves.
Merry Christmas 2009!
Peace to All.

Snow on the East Coast & over The UK

Meanwhile, I guess we'll just struggle along. Somehow. (We'll make it. Not to worry.)(:-))

Kitty Hawk NC

That's an actual photograph, probably not the first powered flight however. I can understand traveling to a sand dune to try this thing out, but, why December?

Across the Wide Missouri

My Brother John loved the Missouri River. His ashes lie therein today. I was reminded of his love for Missouri.

The wide Missouri:

(And no, I do not know what the Shenandoah has to do with the Missouri. Enlighten me.)

Stairs I Like

I dunno. I just like stairs. And, I know that they're not for the wheelchair bound. But, a ramp is just a ramp, whereas a stair is a STAIR!
It's an architectural thing.
