unliteral

My Picasa cup runneth over. A shame really, I was hoping to make it to 29 June and have a full 4 years. I tried a few different image storing alternatives but found them somewhat unwieldy compared to the Picasa/Blogger combination. I thought that seeing as I'm moving, that I might try a different style too. Essentially it will just be a bunch of bookmarks created with the Blog this! tool as I wander around the web. It may not be your cup of tea but if you want to check it out - unliteral.

A little bit o' the Irish











A selection from the National Library of Ireland.

Volturno


Quite the story:
Being caught smoking constituted a $5 fine, so when a steward approached, the Russian dropped his cigarette through a hole in the floor to avoid being caught.
Not a result of Hertzian Waves.

The North American Indian Works











Between 1929 and 1952 C. Szwedzicki, a publisher in Nice, France, produced six portfolios of North American Indian art [You'll have to allow Pop-up Windows - Insight]. The accompanying text is well worth reading for the interpretations and context of the pictures you are looking at.
