Some pictures of... stuff


Today I spent perhaps too much time virtually touring Italy and France in Google Streetview.

I love Google Streetview. And it was 30 below zero on the real streets today. So I just took pictures of my trip in Google Streetview. I've also, as you know, been taking pictures in my video games. So basically I'm wandering around my computer now taking pictures.

Unfortunately it's hard to do a lot of fine photography effectively taking pictures of pictures.

Luckily I don't do fine photography. 

I'm more into rough photography. Really   rough. 

But I'll be polishing it up any day now.

Anyway, here are some rough photographs of things happening inside my computer that I then moved to my phone to do stuff to, and then moved back to my computer to do more stuff to.

It's all needlessly complex.

I like to pretend I have loads of time. It's the best thing to do when one doesn't have very much time, which, sadly, none of us have.

So, um,

take your time then, 

I've used up mine...

The Pictures:

A carved grave figure from a Cemetery in Nice, seated on the deck the ship in the Guardians of the galaxy game, looking very much like he could be a character in said game.

Hand Colossus remnant from the Capitoline Museum in Rome resituated in the library. The hand is, funnily enough, smaller than actual size here.

An equestrian statue from the Capitoline Museum in Rome, on the deck of the main spaceship in Guardians of the Galaxy.

A tomb with a figure of Moses, from Nice, placed on a large platform in The Guardians of the Galaxy.

Marvin the Martian at a Cemetery in Nice, unfamiliar with our death rituals.

A discredited but unfazed Pepe Le Pew in the Capitoline Museum Courtyard in Rome.

Seuss figure at Roman door in Guardians of the Galaxy.

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
