Circles and lines.  Hmm…


WordPress Photo Challenge: Through

Late night last night.  Late post this morning.  Sorry.

The WordPress Photo Challenge this week is “Through“.  I hope you like the photo.


Photo Friday: Rain

I love rainy foggy misty days…

…do you believe me?

 

Because you shouldn’t.  I hate these days.  I never know where to go on these crappy days.  It’s cold.  It’s wet.  It’s..aww…it’s just crud.  I can’t wait until they’re over.

Oh, and Photo Friday this week is Rain.


I love the “vanishing point”.

It’s amazing how perspective turns two parallel lines into converging lines.

 


An entrance to…

I’m sure this goes to a perfectly normal tunnel and off to the remainder of the Canadian Pacific Rail, but I like to think of the places it might take me.  Like…

Hogwarts?

A train on which two people who’ve never met before discuss killing each others’ least desirable person?

Narnia?

What do you think?

 


Line of thinking…do people think in lines?

There’s a line in a poem by Taylor Mali (I think the poem is “Train of Thought”) wherein the speaker ponders whether people who think in “trains of thought” aren’t lacking creativity.  That people should be thinking in “dirigibles” and zeppelins.  They can go anywhere, back, forth, up, down, where train of thought thinkers can only move forward or back at a relatively slow pace.

Now that the school year is finally over, I’m happy to say that my line of thinking is less line-like than ever.

On the other hand, I seem to be gleefully moving toward summer and I’d like that line to be as short as possible.

 

 


Vanishing point; or, what’s with me and railroads?

Not much to say tonight, except:  What would Freud say about me and posting all of these photos with railroads lately?  Any psychology majors, or psychologists out there?  I know, Freud is almost never used in a practical, clinical sense anymore, but I’m still curious.


“The human brain is like a railroad freight car…

…guaranteed to have a certain capacity but often running empty. ”  (Unknown)

 


Local culture; or how I learned to stop worrying and love my city.

This is my kind of local culture.  Railways and graffiti.  I think it just fits Abbotsford perfectly.  What do you think?

BTW, I’m still looking for new graffiti sites.  Has anyone spotted any?


X marks the spot


I don’t remember how to post anymore

I don’t know what to write.  Sorry.
