Roadside Refreshment


I really like this shot. Timeless, but a strangely 1950's "On The Road" feel too it.  Even the slightly washed-out colour balance.

Bonus - RIP Robby Muller. He didn't photograph many movies, but the ones he did - classics.  Paris Texas, Repo Man, Ghost Dog, Down by Law, Dancer in the Dark.

"Kissing The Totem Pole"



I have a horrible feeling that "Kissing The Totem Pole" will turn out to be a euphemism for something Not Suitable For Kids, but that's what Moira is doing here.

Bonus points is you can identify the totem style.

Bonus - My wife told me that "sex is better on holiday"
Not the best postcard I've ever received.

Bonus 2 -   Elasmotherium

Basically, it's the ability to balance colletions of fruit on one's head.  Obviously.

The Bulgarian Teacup



An unusual name, for an unusual plant.   Spheroides Maklabantake is the proper name, and the plant has the rare skill of making a sound like a duck, at moments of danger.

Bonus -

Ethnic Print Skirt

I suppose I should make some disparaging comment about Guardian Readers....but I'm not that shallow. Bonus :  Trump thanks Finland...
