Two Thousand Years
Tall Steeples in Cloudy skies, Sunny skies, in Springtime and all of the other Seasons. Saint Michael the Archangel.
Rest in Springtime
Here it is quiet, peaceful, reverent, landscaped & kept-up - as it is in Cultures around the World in places of the dead. Maybe, it's because Humankind respects the dead more than Humankind respects the living.

I'm Watching You
I was driving across 79th & South Shore Drive when I spotted the heads of three German Shepherds behind a 5 ft. wooden fence. So I circled to get a shot from across the Street. They were obviously guard-dogs, but not barking. I decided to get out of the Car and shoot from the side-walk. They were watching my every move. Other people walked pass and they still didn't bark. It was only after I made eye contact that they reacted. All started showing their teeth. I was thinking, "isn't that nice, they're smiling at me." That is -- until I heard a low growl followed by loud angry barking.
That pissed me off. I started to walk across the Street, reach over that fence and in one long sweep -- b---ch slap all three of them. But I caught myself. I started thinking about CMC and I knew I needed that arm to take pictures.
Alright CMCers. Next time I'll just take the picture and shut up. But at least, I was entertaining myself.
Take Our Picture
As I was getting these various shots from across the Street, these German Shepherds heads were up & down the five ft. fence. Finally, the head-male (naturally) spoke. You're with a magazine? -- I lied. "Yeah! I'm with International Dog World out of Berlin." Then they stopped fiddling around and struck this vanity pose. --- OK - don't diss me. You look at and believe this Dog Whisperer show on NatGeo.
