Ha! Loved them all.
Is that a real Satanic Temple billboard? Fantastic. And my colleague is right now in Madrid with his husband. I told him I need Jamón Serrano, so he better smuggles some for me or else... LOL

XOXO

Thanks for including one of mine in your lineup. That one is a favorite of mine since it perfectly illustrates my twisted sense of humor.

Ricko: Thanks! Feel free to use any that meet your needs.

Sixpence: I'm pretty sure that's really one of their billboards. It's very much the kind of thing that they do.

Old European cities just naturally seem to look transcendently beautiful, even when it's just an ordinary street like that and not some famous building.

Daal: Thanks! I try to start with humor, then get more serious, then move to the awesome-looking pictures (mostly architecture), and end with the thought-provoking.

Pliny: I love that one! I've spent some time on the "Pliny retrospective" link on your site and there's a lot of good stuff there.

I had to steal a few of these. They were too good to pass up.

Leanna: Please do -- I like to see things spread around. If you post Pliny's, please do give him a link -- he deserves more traffic than he gets.

Martha: Thanks! More to come.....

Those are great. The dog digging on the moon made me laugh.
