  1. I remember this statue during my tour. It must be quite a view from where he's standing.

  5. He looks very serious. Wonder what he's thinking.

    wv: unshine. When it rains there's lots of unshine.

  9. Beautiful sky behind Christopher. My first though was cyrano de bergerac because something on the right side pointing out almost looked like a prominent nose until I saw the actual nose.

  13. Stop, already, with the big words...I had to look up "eponymous" although I should have known what it meant. Trouble is, like so many other things, it slipped my mind. Or maybe my mind slipped.

    Hope all is well. We're exhausted after driving almost 4,000 miles to Colorado and back...but I'll catch up eventually...

  15. Glad you told me who he was... I was thinking a bishop or something. Great choice of angles for a shot of somebody of this ... stature (sorry, I had to!)

  17. I'm not sure how pleased Christopher is with his domain. He looks a little grumpy today.
