Image round-up for 16 February 2023

A few more pictures (a couple slightly NSFW) -- click for full size.

(If you're looking for the previous post, click here.)

From 1912

There is no actual video of Lincoln -- the image at right is computer animation based on the still photo

1970s aesthetic


Villa of the Roman emperor Hadrian at Tivoli, Italy

The land of my ancestors, snowy, as is often the case

Roman amethyst ornament with image of (possibly) Eratosthenes


  1. Animals photobombing the cameras always make me laugh. Some of those wilderness pictures just look so relaxing.

  2. Holy Guacamole - that bus falling apart - I bet she is glad she did not get on. I wonder how many people were hurt? Lincoln just creeps me out - like a ghost. I love the lampshade cat, the gull close up and the cartoon about Dick - how funny is that?

  3. Ricko: I aim to please -- and I get these from a wide range of sources.

    Mary K: And those animals have no idea how funny they are, or how their image is being spread around the net.....

    Lady M: Absolutely terrible construction and/or maintenance on that bus, for that to happen. Must have been a hell of a shock inside.

    I noticed that the Lincoln animation doesn't quite look natural. These things never do, somehow.

    The "Dick" comic panel -- it's funny how the passage of just a few decades gives something a completely new meaning. I wonder what innocuous present-day items will evoke giggles in 2070.

  4. I know the vegetable (technically a fruit, but who wants my expert opinion?) is most likely a cucumber, but I'm reminded of Tim Curry singing "the zucchini song."

  5. Heh -- she looks like she's thinking rather along those lines.

  6. Glad you liked them! More where these came from.....

  7. You always share some really interesting photos!
