The Shrubbery of Ni

I found what the knights wanted… Actually there was a sign there that said No Entry, but I ignored that because the flowers were too pretty not to capture with the Eiffel.

Milan Train Station at Midnight

Aren’t those lights cool? That is the real color of those lights… no photoshop trickery…

Power of God

I thought this was sort of an armageddon / apocalypse / revelations view of Notre Dame. I was lucky that day with the clouds that makes this place look more extreme… even though it is pretty extreme on its own anyway.

Ruins with Cats

These ruins in Rome are full of at least 50 cats… Someone commented in Flickr and said they are feral and fed by local Roman women. Either way, it is strange to look down inside and see all that feline activity.

Evening in the Park

Here’s that tower thing that I can’t ever remember the name of… I asked a bunch of French people while I was there and they would just give me a blank stare, like they didn’t understand Esperanto.

This photo came out surprisingly nicely. This was shot over the Seine as I was walking over towards the Eiffel Tower at sunset.

The Cannon was Aimed Vaguely Towards Germany

Here is the pinnacle of French military technology. This has been converted to a water cannon to hose down people that are protesting the inhumane 35-hour work week.

Willows in Wine Country

Here is an older picture I just got around to uploading from Napa, out where my mom lives. The larger version of this one is nice… these panoramic shots always look boring when viewed small.
