London

London, England, Parliament

Photograph made on a return visit to London several years ago.
I love traveling to England, but am not sure about the future.
When I made my first trip for my honeymoon in 1984, the roundtrip
tickets for my wife and I were around $200 each.
If only that were still the case today.

A Mannequin in the Window

Mannequin

Always happy.
Always smiling.
Always willing to be your friend.
The Mannequin.

You’re traveling through another dimension,
a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind.
A journey into a wondrous land whose boundaries are that of imagination.
That’s the signpost up ahead – your next stop, the Twilight Zone!


Cable Car Operator

San Francisco Cable Car

Traveling on a cable car in San Francisco is  part of the experience.
But imagine being the cable car operator. You not only have to operate
antique machinery, but you also have to warn knuckleheads who come
dangerously close to losing a limb.

The Stuff That Dreams Are Made Of…..

Monument-Valley

The title is a quote from a famous movie,
and the location above has been in many movies.
So it is “the stuff that dreams are made of…”


Disappointment

amusement park ride, child, little girl

A summertime vacation ride at an amusement park should be fun and exciting for a little girl.
So why is this little girl crying? Because she doesn’t have the front seat on
this two person ride. Which goes to show, even when you have everything you want,
disappointment is still a possibility.
