A Brief Interlude

So here it is Monday morning, and I find myself all wrapped up reading about the French Revolution and the involvement of the Ottoman Empire in said engagement, and how both of these things relate to the poem/prose story that I’ve been relating over the last few days. Realizing that the research I am doing is definitely involved enough at this point that there is just no way I’m going to get the next instalment of the poem out tonight, I decided that an interlude was in order.

Now the weather today, as it was yesterday, is rather dismal around here, so there just isn’t much sense in taking my camera out and hoping to get any decent shots. However, a few days ago the weather was absolutely beautiful, crystal-clear and very calm. And as it turns out, on that day I did get a great deal of photography time in, so I thought that I would share the results of that with you. Thus, while you have a chance to take a look at some Vancouver weather at its finest, I can get back to the business of discovering just what the Ottomans had to do with the French Revolution. Of course, I am beginning to realize that Mister Bonaparte had a nasty habit of picking fights with just about anyone that crossed his path. Now if I can just remember where I put all those pictures.

(For those of you who would like a little entertainment while you’re browsing through the pictures, I’ve added a few tunes at the bottom of the gallery that you can listen to if you are of a mind to.)

    1. I thank you very much for thinking of me, but I’m afraid I’m going to have to say no to this honour, I’ve already turned down another four or five in the last month and it wouldn’t be proper to accept one now. I really got backed up on my writing in the last month or so and so I stopped accepting awards. I hope you won’t take it personally, and I really do appreciate that you thought of me. Maybe another time. Thanks again.

  1. Gorgeous photos! And I have indeed enjoyed your “interlude…” Nothing wrong with lush pics and some great tunes. As for Bonaparte, you are quite correct. What a little bulldog of a man! Enjoy your research, but don’t forget to smell the roses! 🙂 Mother Hen


    1. Well, so nice to see you’re back in action. Glad to hear that you enjoyed everything, and I certainly will be smelling those roses, Mister Bonaparte left a rather bad taste in my mouth. He also managed to slow down my schedule because once you start reading about that little man he’s a hard subject to put down. Once again, it’s nice to have you back, and thanks for the nice words.

    These photos are amazing, David!! It really did feel like going for a walk with you and I’m so grateful you managed to get all of these shots. Why wasn’t I born a Canadian? sigh. 😉 ♥

        lol, I wish. I’ve looked into the immigration process, and since I can’t prove I would be able to financially take care of myself, it’s a no-go. I went on vacation with my mom to Canada once and I almost didn’t come home. If I hadn’t had her with me, I might not have, lol. But things work out the way they’re meant to … or so people keep telling me. =D
