Shoot Three - "Paris - Montmatre II"

Iceland! And, we had Michelle, Elaine, Jim, Milt, and Mike checking in. Michelle was oh so close!

"Montmatre Transportation"

While walking through the backstreets of Montmatre, I came across
this popular mode of transportation. There were several aspects of this image that screamed, "Take my picture!" The encroaching ivy reached just far enough to be framing the bike while underlining the street sign. The color combination of those leaves against that wall was perfect! Whoever parked this bicycle must have known about allowing ample space in front of a subject. Simple subject but such a beautiful composition!

Getting Older?

Where in the World?

Here are some interesting facts about various countries of the world. Just where would I be? Tough one this week!

It's the 11th most populated country in the world with around 117 million people (as of July 2012).

Also, the 14th largest country by land area.

Home to over 30 UNESCO World Heritage Sites and is a popular tourist destination.

Stone tools have been found here that suggest the existence of humans there around 23000 years ago.

The national symbol is the golden eagle which features prominently on the coat of arms.

Interesting Fact. . .

There are so many kinds of apples, 
that if you ate a new one everyday, 
it would take over 20 years to try them all!  

Leaving on a humorous note, I hope!

   Is there another word for. . .
