I started this post before leaving home and am just now getting around to figuring out how to finish it in Beijing. Which is okay at the end of the day because I have a few new photos to add.
But to start with...Icebergs from Newfoundland and Labrador!
It is hard to imagine bergs are still a reality back home because it was 40 degrees here a few days back and I almost melted! But Newfoundland and Labrador is still in the midst of iceberg season...and some occasional below zero temperatures...and some occasional snow. Sigh.
The photos above are of the Ferryland iceberg. It was grounded for a bit and, in the month of April, drew lots of visitors, including your's truly.
Interestingly, both of these photos are of the same iceberg, taken from two different vantage points.
Kinda neat to see how different it looks, depending on where you stand.
A good thing to consider as we wander through life; at the time it reminded me of the song 'Both Sides, Now'.
And now I find myself in China, singing along with Joni Mitchell again, where I managed to get some interesting pictures of a marvelous thing: The Great Wall.
As we were preparing to land in Beijing I snuck over to a window and snapped a few shots of the beautiful mountains; I happened to capture The Great Wall in a few of them. And a few days later we were wandering around on The Great Wall ourselves, where I managed to get a few shots from 'another side'.
It would seem to me that you never really know how things are going to be from the other side. Until you go there.
