Random Photos

Along the way, I take photos that I find interesting, but which do not fit into the theme of other entries. Still, I thought they were worth sharing with you.

  1. I like how you’re adding some black and white photos to your blog. The one with the chain looks interesting – especially the texture of the chain and the shoreline.

  2. i really like these shots. i have always love B&W photos. n that last pic… oh, i just want to have that dog. i mean, just look at those sad puppy eyes.

  3. Very good hodgepodge of photos. The clues on the Beagle photo being taken in Bangkok are there but most folks would not have known if you didn’t tell us that it is so.Rust near oceans and areas that are “salted” is a pretty terrible thing for owners who live in these areas. Hence never purchase used vehicles from those areas. However desert areas help enable steel vehicles to last forever. I suppose my area sees a lot of ancient vehicles that seem locked away in a time warp.

  4. @rudyhou – I love dogs because they often have such cute eyes, but I love cats because of their lithe bodies.@yang1815 – That explains the rust.@Vitamin_D – You are very welcome.@AppsScraps – See? Now you know.@ZSA_MD – Really? Why do they dress up as Santa?@grannykaren – Interesting textures in that picture, aren’t there?@PPhilip – The effects of nature on even the strongest of materials are pretty awesome. Makes you realize that everything is, indeed, impermanent.@venice – Oh, you have a beagle? They are one of my favorite breeds, although the baying can be annoying.@jace1982 – Thank you.@Fatcat723 – Thanks, I gave a lot of thought to the order of the photos.@mizz_chan – You are most welcome. You’ve left Hong Kong already, right?
