The view from Grant Park in Chicago, Illinois looking slightly north / northwestward up Michigan Avenue. This area was the hotbed of civic revolt during the 1968 Democratic National Convention held at the International Amphitheatre a few blocks to the west of the park on Halsted Street. The park was a sea of hippies and police touting billyclubs and teargas.

I like this, however, I am trying to recall what it reminds me of ... could it be a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle?

Talking BIG BIG BIG bucks for a "Patek Philippe" watch. Big $$$. 😃

Niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiice. Love the blue. +1

Almost looks real. 😃 +1

COOOOOOL. 😃 +1

Cool. 😃 +1

My all time favourite Anime movie, "Ghost In The Shell". Classic anime for the "thinking person" albeit with an important societal / contemplative message at its very core. +1

A crisp representation of an owl Kate. Very stoic / regal looking. Amazing eyes in which to see things in low light conditions. Very perceptive birds. 😃 +1

He say you "Bwade Wunnah" "You got the wrong guy, pal."

I think this *may* be a gecko lizard rather than a frog. Just maybe. O_o Ribbit.

A bloody GREAT image. Nice.

Who in their right mind would give this lovely lass a down vote? Who? Somebody out there needs to invest in a pair of eyeglasses. +1 😃😃😃 Yowza!

I loooooooooooove Keira Knightley. What a babe. Yowza! (O_o)

A literal rendering of "The March Of The Penguins". 😃

+1 🙂

Simple, but very cool. +1 😃

I like the blues in this ... however, I can't make out the woman. Are there several faces which comprise a larger face of a woman? Cool nonetheless. 😃 +1

This is St. Thomas (a.k.a. "Didymus") inspecting the lance wound in Christ's side in order to overcome his doubt about Jesus' Resurrection. Hence the term "Doubting Thomas". From the Gospel of St. John the Evangelist (Chapter 20, verses 24 - 29): 20 24 Now Thomas, one of the twelve, who is called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came. 20 25 The other disciples therefore said to him: We have seen the Lord. But he said to them: Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails and put my finger into the place of the nails and put my hand into his side, I will not believe. 20 26 And after eight days, again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them. Jesus cometh, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst and said: Peace be to you. 20 27 Then he said to Thomas: Put in thy finger hither and see my hands. And bring hither the hand and put it into my side. And be not faithless, but believing. 20 28 Thomas answered and said to him: My Lord and my God. 20 29 Jesus saith to him: Because thou hast seen me, Thomas, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen and have believed.


The full quote: "One death is a tragedy. A million deaths is just a statistic." Actually, Russian historians are doubtful that this quote is attributable to Soviet Premire Josef Stalin. As per Wikipedia: Russian historians have no record of the lines, "Death of one man is a tragedy. Death of a million is a statistic," commonly attributed by English-language dictionaries to Josef Stalin. This quotation probably originated from a pamphlet titled "Franz?sischer Witz" / "The French Witticism" by Kurt Tucholsky in 1932. 😉

Fookin A! I've seen it all now. A STEAMPUNK submarine. 😃 Or ... this may be the sub from 1954 film adaptation of author Jules Verne's "20,000 Leagues Under The Sea" called the "Nautilus" commanded by "Captain Nemo". Thanks for uploading this. +1

Dude .... Is this an H.R. Giger image? Sure looks like it ... same biomechanical style. Take care, trollcrusher 😉

Interestingly AWESOME. Love the microbiological CGI rendering of this image. 🙂

Diggin' the colour scheme in this one ... lotsa greys punctuated by the iridescent sanguine slashes of red. +1

Nice. +1

YES! +1

I ever so love the slight touch of the purple flowers in this image. The viewer's eye is immediately drawn to the purple colour as it fights for space with the earth tones of the rest of the picture.

A FAVE AND A PLUS ONE (+1)! Hey, my hometown ... Chicago, Illinois, U.S.A. This image was shot from the Michigan Ave. bridge that crosses over the Chicago River as it empties into Lake Michigan. The view is looking westward away from Michigan Ave. with the Unitrin Building on the left side of the image and apparently the first several floors of the Trump Tower Chicago building (under construction) on the right side of the pic. I don't know how many times I've walked over this bridge or viewed the buildings in this shot, but it has been quite a few. Thanks for uploading this. Very cool. Brings back memories for me. 😉

I do love the resurgence of the whole "Tilt Shift" photographic style. Very cool in that it renders "life sized" objects down to what, upon first glance, appears to be miniature replicas in tiny scale. It does indeed look like a model train that you'd see beneath a Christmas tree. 😃
