I'm curious..what made you connect the compass to that page in the book? Random?? (Neat photos, btw).

Cute. Hope you started a whole collection some place. Make a calender, ya know? I've got one I'm working on myself. I like your stuff so far =)

Ryane: The book is an antiquarian find. A first edition of "Nearest the Pole: A Narrative of the Polar Expedition of the Peary Arct" by Robert E. Peary. The compass is also old and belonged to a relative. I keep it on the bookcase shelf where I have my books on things like the Arctic, or other places on the planet.

Needtsza: I've been trying to take a photograph of the day...invariably on the run and not well executed, but a record, nonetheless. The pictures are more for my own interest and amusement, and I'm dumping them on the blog, rather than set up a Flickr account, which I'm still thinking about.

Clever, clever, Cube. I'd frame this one.

MA: Awwww. Nah. What I really need is a high end camera. So many other things in line before it though. Sigh.

Phil: I'm surprised you didn't say "grits."

A flickr account and blogged images aren't mutually exclusive. Flickr provides html code with every image so that it's simple to post the picture to your blog, and it provides enough file space to keep archival-sized/full-quality images stored there.

As for the camera, sure, good equipment is a good thing. But it's no substitute for imagination and visual wits, which you've clearly got in spades. I hope you'll continue sharing your imaged daily reflections.
