    The fisherman makes me sad, kinda like I felt looking at the little birds playing in the water, kinda like a reminder that no one likes to play with just one friend all the time.

    Very proud of this, two links for the price of one. One fairly obvious, the other more tenuous and lateral.

    Can you spot them both?

    let me see, a camel is considered the ship of the desert, so a ship should be considered the Camel of the Sea?

    OK Lamble, I will take a stab at the connection. The camel is known as the "Ship of the desert" and there is a ship in the photo. The camel has a hump(s) and the flukes are of a humpback whale, i believe. The ocean has waves and the sand has waves.

    Both got the camel and ship, but the other one I was thinking of was the flip flop and I know technically a tail isn't a flipper (or is it?) I did chuckle when I saw it myself.

    I must get out into the fresh air more!

    What goes flip flip flip?
    A mono-ped on his way across the beach.

    One final point...the flip flop wearer isn't me. That nail polish colour isn't my shade.

    Hallis - what's the story behind the photo? The horses on the hill are statues, yes? A monument of some sort?

    Wild Horse Monument

    This is between Moses Lake and Ellensburg Washington at Vantage.
    Quick blast from Montana last weekend on the way to the Puget Sound to
    see my son. Large metal sculptures on a high hill overlooking the Columbia River.
    You can find them on the web.

    Paris! in the Tuileries Garden. I'd sworn your photo was from the same place only a different angle. There is a retrospective of the artist's work coming up in NYC, Louise Bourgeois, which I have to get to.

    How about that, there is more than one! Darn mass produced spiders.
    I first noticed that yours was on grass...

    The one in Paris really caught my eye having grown up in the 50's and watching all of those SciFi movies; Earth vs. the Spider, Tarantula, etc. I didn't want to get too close.

    Sounds like a challenge.
    I'm going to ask my Rounder friend if he can get the one in Seoul.
