Refreshing break beside the lake.

Ah, lovely.

You probably recognise this as being the Hotel Flüela Hospiz, near Davos in Switzerland. And yes, it's still in business.

As an aside, 970's fashions / hairdos are awesome.

Bonus - Anyone for Tea?

Bonus 2 - Seen at at an Anti-Trump Rally...

The Westland Wyvern


I won't bother playing Name That Plane with this one, because, I've already done that.

But, an interesting looking plane by any standards. Wikipedia.

Bonus - On a plane theme, it's interesting to read fatal plane crash reports, and see what the NTSB can't quite bring themselves to say explicitly. For example, this one. What was happening at the time ?  :-)

Bonus 2 -

What a Monster !



Indeed, it' not often you see one that size, is it? 

No information on the slide, so I guess the original photographer is keeping the location secret

Good Plan, there's probably a ruthless gang of smuggler who would want this...   umm, this....Large Lemon ?????

Bonus - Complete Incomprehension

Bonus 2 -
Not A Good Day



Bonus 3 - Derby - Familiar, but different.  Nice.

Ole!


Christmas does strange things to people. Here, two perfectly normal people are magically transformed into a matador and a bull.

I suspect that Brandy has a large part to play in the transformation.

Bonus - Melania and Donald Trump both botched Pearl Harbor remembrance tweets.

Bonus 2 - A couple of days ago saw the death of Edwin Hawkins, so have this.

Levitation



Admit it .

This is a stonkingly good picture.

I can imagine it as an album cover for a young trendy indie band.

(And that's a cool diving platform.)

Bonus - Feng Hui

Moody Airport

Again, I'm not sure whether this i artistic or bad photography, or even tedious.

Let's just leave this here anyway.

Bonus - Bunny Slippers (NSFK)

Bonus 2 - No !
Worst Lift Ever

Possibly Not Original


What I like about 35mm slides is that the image you see is the image that was formed in the camera.

Unlike prints from negatives, THIS is the original.


But perhaps not this particular slide. This MIGHT be a photographic of an illustration.

Of course, maybe it is a genuine image of the Old Testament Prophet Elijah telling the Mideonites that the eating of raspberries is forbidden by the scriptures.  Maybe.

Bonus - The sad demise of Dynamosaurus imperiosus.

Bonus 2 - Alaska Highway Construction 1944 Documentary

Refreshing break beside the lake.
