I'm getting ready to leave, and more folks keep finding their way in.

At Stonehenge, every year lots of white-dressed Druids are visiting the place for the summer solstice. I guess at this place lots of blue-collared car mechanics are gathering here for the summer solstice.

Thanks for going so far out of your way to catch this for us, not1word ! Though I'm sensing you enjoyed seeing it, too. LOL, what a mind the guy who built it must have.

You've got to the heart of the matter, Norrel. They hold their box-end wrenches up high, and chant the ancient mantra, "That will be extra."

'Twas my pleasure, kamaly. At first, I kept thinking, "Good grief. All that way for this?" But then I sort of got into the spirit of it all, and had some fun with it. I think that I like how this one came out best.

ooooooooo CARHENGE

One and the same, Larry. I'm already kicking myself for some shots that I didn't think of trying out.

In a couple thousand years there will be a fence around this and you won't be able to get close.

Whew! I'm glad I got there when I did then, Cal. It would be a bummer to be fenced out. I get that enough as it is.

One certainly wonders what goes through other folks' heads, eh, Bruce?

A very strange looking picure/situation here. I won't ask why people make such things. But i'm curious because of the circles. Are these crop circles on the map and why circles.

Greetings from Holland

Hello, Jan. This was made by a son to celebrate his father's appreciation of Stonehenge in England. Why he chose cars I do not know. As for the circles, it's a method of farming that uses a central well head, and a rotating wheeled irrigation line that rolls (pivots) around the well head. I hope that's clear enough for an answer. Thanks for stopping in.

Sorry I missed your friendly visit there, Marilyn. I hope you have a great new year.

Thanks, Bruce. I appreciate the heads up. I've got a couple that would fall under that rubric, but I think you found the one I might use. Happy new year to you, too!

Great picture n1w: I haven't spoken with you since discussing Bushnell General Hospital and Mt Everest almost a year ago.

I visited Carhenge a couple years ago and took some pictures. I uploaded them fiendishly to G-E at Stonehenge. You can see them in a cluster on the SE side of the stones. They've been getting quite a few views and no one has complained yet about the location. My hope is that people get a chuckle or two.

Hi there, Max. Thanks for remembering me, and dropping in again. That's funny, about your mapping. I mapped a shot in a funny spot once, I think I put something odd near the south pole, and someone came right back and questioned the location. It's funny how some folks take things. I'm glad they're taking your posting in the spirit it was done it. Cheers!

N1w: Nice to hear from you again. I must come clean about a couple of my other mappings. About ten years ago some ecologists in Brighton, England got planning permission to build an Earthship (ecological house). I took some nice pictures of it last year and uploaded them to the location NW of Taos, NM where there's an Earthship community. So far, no complaints.

Taos - Brighton -

My intention here was to cause some cross-fertilization of ideas among people who might never be aware of other Earthships. Next time I'm out in Taos I intend to take some good pix of the Earthships and upload them to both places.

BTW, I hope the above two panoramio references arn't considered spam. I'll be happy to delete the comment if they are.


not1word on March 24, 2010

Those aren't considered Spam, Max. That would be if you were linking to a shot of your own that you were trying to boost the view count for to win the big contest. Thanks for the links and visits.

HA! I found some more cars sticking up out of the dirt this afternoon while driving through Texas. I'll be posting them this week.
