Postin' old school

Well, I guess the only way I can accomplish this is to post the old-fashioned way. :)

First glimpse of Heaven...
A blast from the past...
Anybody remember Toronto's bid for the 1996 Summer Olympics? You might recall we didn't get it. Atlanta did. Their revenge on us for the 1992 World Series, I guess. ;) But these stickers were common back in the early 1990s. I suppose this one has been on this box for twelve or thirteen years now. God... 1996 used to seem so far into the future. It's hard to believe it was nearly ten years ago now.

Come look through my window...

Or more precisely, off my balcony. A few days ago just before I left for work I happened to glance out just as the sun was catching the buildings, but leaving the east lip of the valley in shadow. I found the contrast striking, and in the five minutes or so while the effect persisted, I took about two dozen shots. These were the two I liked the best.

The drunk of the Irish...

Atmosphere at the Irish pub I recently attended with a friend.

I'd like to win one in County Wexford, please. :) A humourous, and I'm sure entirely unintentional, juxtapositioning of pressure marketing and schmaltzy kitsch.

Wow, David Bowie looks great, don't you think?

What's the old-fashioned way? I only know one way to post photos.

The way you showed me, direct upload in the comment. Previously, I was posting using Hello. But that's what's giving me the error message. I'll wait a couple of days, see what's what.

The way I showed you is old school? Hmm, well at least something worked -- the photos are up.

Nah, it's gettin' cold now. You wouldn't like it. :)

Actually, I WOULD like it. I LOVE the cold! I figure it would be good for me, things keep better in the cold. :)
