  1. I think I’ve seen that home in Venice. I also like to think I have more imagination than to take the same set of photos again.

    It’s a little under 300 Km Bukhara to Samarkand. Probably 9 or 10 days journey by camel caravan. At one time in my life I wanted to travel the silk road by camel. Then I learned what nasty creatures they are. Then I learned what a nasty place the USSR was. Now I’m a staid old stick, too wedded to creature comforts.

    1. That building looks like it’s been yarn bombed by some mad macrame artists. It gives a surprisingly light look to what is almost certainly some form of masonry.

    3. I wonder if that tree is lonely.

    7. An interesting photograph because of how the people are aligned within the different layers.

    several. I can totally imagine some of these stairways and passageways leading to seedy bars filled with suspicious looking men in cheap suits looking to trade secrets.

    1. That is quite wonderful that you recognize the house in Venice. It helps to reinforce the idea that this world of wonders is small and precious.
