The first is called, an Artful Buddha.
The next is a view of "The Guardians" a statue located in Brasilia, and photographed some 40 years ago.
Next up is a view of the Grand Canyon, or rather a tree at the edge of the Big Ditch.
Greece is the centerpiece of the next image, or more precisely a little village in a Greek isle.
From Greece to San Francisco, our fair city. Herb Caen, who used to write for the San Francisco Chronicle, referred to San Francisco as "Baghdad by the Bay", but that was 50 years ago, when something magical was attached to the notion of Baghdad, instead of people exploding themselves in marketplaces. But here's one view of that old Baghdad by the Bay.
Another of that fabled city's attractions is the bridge at the Golden Gate.
Strolling around the old town of Salem, North Carolina, is a charming experience. While so strolling, I came across a nice touch of light, shadow and texture in this next picture.
