Giant Feet

Standing under the foot of a giant, this I think is a unique perspective of the Eiffel Tower.

They are Red

If there is anything to say about this macro image of a blood red rose..............then it is only to describe its beauty and to dedicate it to my mother-in-law who shares the same name.

Never Ending Story

Mischa when she was a puppy, she is half Bouvier, half Boxer, and three quarters Warthog.  She is over 5 years old now (time does fly, as apposed to pigs which slam into the ground with an oink) and is commonly confused with the dragon from The Never Ending Story.

Little Bells

I don't know why, but I love this simple image of tiny little flowers on a fresh, verdant background.

An interesting 'new' term ('new' for me anyway) has entered the design arena lately - destressed implies something that has been eroded & worn, it has taken a step back from its former glory.  I thought this was a perfect example of a destressed door, destressed by time & wear, not chemicals.

The Gates of Hell

The Gates of Hell is a work sculpted by Rodin, it currently stands in the Musee de Orsay in Paris and is based on the characters of Danté's Inferno.  I find this piece fascinating, the longer you stare at it, the more intricacies you discover.  Here are two close-up images of various scenarios found in the work, which is much larger & detailed than one would imagine.

Day Dreaming

Funny how humans can stare at the ocean or an open fireplace for hours...
