Be back soon. Have been looking into some imprinting apps that will mark the photos, not that it is so important in the grand scheme of things, but its just the point of it. But to hold you over, here's one I just took in Oregon for my Canadian friends and family if you are still looking in, including the band over at "the Hobo Travelogue".

Dateline Halifax, Nove Scotia
As you can see in the above photo, I have solved the piracy problem, or so I like to think, by figuring out how to put that copyrite thing in the lower left corner. I know they can outsmart me, but I am willing to accept the certain degree of false confidence this security measure provides. Do I have delusions of grander that the stuff is worth stealing, maybe, but as I said, it is just the point of it.
Was in the Old Burial Grounds of Halifax today at a ceremony commemorating the War of 1812 and particularly General Ross who was responsible for the sacking of Washington D.C. and the burning of the White House. They are thankful to General Ross and his armies for all they did to prevent Canada from being captured by the U.S. and becoming the 51st state. The way things are going in the U.S. of A, perhaps they did dodge a bullet back then. Poor General Ross was killed a few weeks later. His body was stored in a barrel of rum and transported back to Halifax. I'm sure he would have preferred that rum in a coke or maybe a mojito, but ces't la guerre. Took this photo in the Old Burial Grounds this morning,, right before the ceremony.
It is a sarcophagus quite similar to the one General Ross is interred in. That is not a painting on the side, but mold and decay. Nature's paintbrush as they say.
