Every once in a while there’s a image that you just find cool and can’t put your finger on it. This Scottish cow on the Isle of Skye was munching along side the road. It was raining pretty good, so I had my wife roll down the window and grabbed a couple of quick shots across the inside of the car. I thought the solution to the barbed wire was pretty neat.
I’m often asked about the heritage of my last name – I get guesses from Souix Indian (Lakota) to Hawaiian or Polynesian. In reality, my great-grandfather was born in Prague, Bohemia, now part of the Czech Republic. We had a chance to visit there last year, and it was one of my bucket list trips. The city was essentially untouched by both world wars, and even the weight of communism couldn’t keep the city’s spirit down. This is a view of the city from one of the walls of Prague Castle.
This week’s photo is from a trip a few years back. There’s an old Liberty ship that ran around off the coast of Lanai in Hawaii. We were there on a slightly misty day, and while the color images are amazing (especially a large panoramic shot), I really like the eerie feeling that you get from the black and white version.
