I am thinking this last winter wasn't so bad here.
 
Trudie Ochsner from Summerside, P.E.I. shared this photo she calls "Malpeque Bay or North Pole?" This is her view of Locke Shore Road after that massive spring snow storm there.

We're in second place in USA Today's list of 10 best wine regions to visit: Voting continues until Aug. 4, and you can vote everyday... just saying...

#penticton   #okanagan   #wineregion  
There's something special about tasting wines on the very grounds where they're grown and produced, and these 20 amazing and travel-worthy wine regions offer tasty varietals paired with good food and plenty of experiences to satisfy even non-oenophiles. You have until AUGUST 4 at NOON to vote for your favorite wine region to visit, but you might find it hard to pick between this amazing lineup of destinations.

What an amazing project and photos.
 
Crossrail: Tunneling Beneath London - 28 photos - http://theatln.tc/1heJKT3 - When one digs beneath London, England, one digs through history. Crossrail, the largest construction project in Europe, is tunneling beneath the city to provide a new underground rail link across London, and has encountered not only a maze of existing modern infrastructure, but historic finds ranging from mammoth bone fragments, Roman roads (with ancient horseshoes embedded in the ruts), Black Plague burial grounds, and 16th century jewelry. The $25 billion (15 billion pound) project is due to open in 2018, connecting London's Heathrow airport to the county of Essex -- five tunnel boring machines are creating a kilometer of new tunnel under London every two weeks.

Photojournalist and writer
Introduction
Just a wanderer through the universes, virtual and real, in search of fun and new things to see.

I'm a 40-something photojournalist and writer, sometimes an arts critic as well as being a literacy advocate and environmentalist. 

I'm a big fan of jazz, swing, the blues, classical music- anything except country.

“To see life; to see the world; to eyewitness great events; to watch the faces of the poor and the gestures of the proud; to see strange things – machines, armies, multitudes, shadows in the jungle and on the moon; to see our work – our paintings, towers and discoveries; to see things thousands of miles away, things hidden behind walls and within rooms, things dangerous to come to: the women that men love and many children; to see and to take pleasure in seeing; to see and be amazed; to see and be instructed;”
Henry Luce, Life Magazine, 1936
