Greenwich, a photographic view


Originally uploaded by canuckshutterer.
I was rummaging through some old diskettes and came across this scan file of a photo print of Greenwich, England. This is from a trip either in 1993 or 1996. More likely 93. I love London and have been there three times. Maybe I will get back soon. The camera in question a Pentax PZ-1 and a 28-80 Pentax FA zoom lens 3.5 – 4.5 aperture. I went to the National Maritime Museum there but was lazy and did not walk all the way up the hill to the Observatory. Near where my cruise boat docked two ships were berthed: Chichester’s solo global circumnavigation tiny ship and the Cutty Sark. In those days you could tour aboard the Cutty Sark. Now I believe it is in dire need of restoration.

dragon, small – warming on the stove

I am not the only one grown tired of winter and too much snow…..this green dragon, friend of my dog, Shakey, is warming his tootsies on the stove. We are all ready for Spring to arrive.

snow banks

I was driving up the hill section of Hugel Avenue in Midland, Ontario today and when I got on the top flat section on my way to the smallish mall to return some movie DVDs I noticed a woman walking along the sidewalk. I could see her and in her hand a leash that seemed to be connected to a dog. However, the snow bank was high enough to conceal the canine. In fact, short of a great dane or shetland pony, I would still have to take it on faith that I was not seeing a recreation of the dog walking episode from Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil.
