No Constantinople, is Boston now.

This is really cool Bits, in fact I even like it.

If you don't have real Alps, you can build artificial ones. I like the way the reflections of the buildings fade in the water.

Bits-n-Pieces on July 18, 2010

LOL Guy - No Coke. Pepsi!

Thanks Norrel! So will you, Bob, and Paddel come visit Boston and hike to the top of those Alps?

I sense that one of my accidents is being referenced, and shall have to make an appearance. Another addition to the Greater Cambridge Ad Council photo stock. What a pretty shot of the skyline, Bits.

Beautiful shot Bits, strange cloud formations. Cheers Cal

I Like the dual symmetry.

Bits-n-Pieces on July 20, 2010

Thanks not1word! Not Cambridge, BOSTON!

Thanks Cal! A pretty cool thunderstorm had just passed through. I hadn't been able to get anywhere to catch the lightning, but the post-storm light was great!

Thanks Tery

The Alps in this picture are too steep for Bob and Paddel, Bitsy. Are there any glaciers on top of these Alps?

Enzo Molino on July 23, 2010

Wonderful sight.

Bits-n-Pieces on July 23, 2010

'Like" to your comment Mr. Word!

But Norel, we've seen Paddel with the ropes around his neck. We know he could do it! And for glaciers, there's very nice ice in the drinks in the restaurant at the very top ;)

Thanks so much Enzo!

Sorry Bitsy it has been so long, I am going out soon but will be back, love this one, and must take time tomorrow to have a better look. Cheers D.

Enjoying the read. Am to where she finds the crucifix under her pillow after the dream. Conversation exchange foreshadows "Inception". Is this city folding on itself?

diannemcd on July 31, 2010

When I went into enlarge - it really is a brilliant shot, just love it. Was talking about you yesterday to H & Marbiz....all good.

Bits-n-Pieces on August 1, 2010

Hi Dianne - thanks about the photo! I gasped when I first downloaded it, so it's so nice to have others appreciate it! and LOL, hope you all had a good laugh!

Hi Tery - glad you're enjoying it! I guess I should re-read it, since it's been several years and I don't remember the details too much, just the general gist of reality not being what it seems, and how much I personally identify with Sophie's reality!!!!! And I don't remember if the reality of who 'Sophie' is is a general given through the book, or a bit of a twist near the end, so I don't want to give it away!

There's lots of hints and I'm wondering how it will end. For now I've finished the section on Hume who is not an empiricist who would have tested the assumptions about children not being surprised if a moving billiard ball would not cause a stationary one to move if hit. Experiments in the last decade have shown that infants have an inate understanding of basic physics. Since the book came out in 1994 the author would not have known either. What would have Hume said and how might that have affected Sophie in the end?

not1word on August 1, 2010

This really is a special shot, Bits. The color is very satisfying, and you got a nice mix of old and new buildings to compliment each other.

Bits-n-Pieces on August 1, 2010

Thanks n1w! And that's Boston for you :)

Well Tery, I haven't retained enough of the book to even remember Hume. But, well, I imagine that if Sophie hit some billiard balls in some places in the book they wouldn't move. Then again, just maybe they would!
