Just a few days before the opening of a new dinosaur gallery at the Royal Ontario Museum, staff members were hard at work on the exhibit.

Greetings Marilyn, What a nice picture. The cars give it a great sense of motion. I can even see the dinosaurs through the windows! Looks like a fun exhibit. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks, Rich. I came home with three shots, and I chose this one for precisely the reason you suggested, its sense of motion, even though it wasn't quite as sharp as the others!

Cheers, Marilyn

I had no idea there were dinosaurs in The Centre Of The Universe! (Canadian joke here). I love the photo!

LOLOLOLOLOLOL I like that one Nawitka! ;D

Lovely picture Marilyn! :D Did you go into the museum to see the display?


Marilyn Whiteley on December 13, 2007

Okay, you two! At least I'm no Torontonian! ;)

The display doesn't open until the weekend. I haven't been to the ROM for years even though for about twelve years I worked part-time (from one to three days a week) across the street from it, and after that I spent countless hours in the same place doing research. I think once the dinosaurs are open for business, it's time for a visit!

Great photo Marilyn, those angled shots are wonderful..I hope you can make it back to the U.K. sometime. The Yorkshire Dales has a lot to offer...Anita

Thanks, Anita, and I also hope we can get there someday. It was wonderful looking at Yorkshire out a train window, but so frustrating, too! Marilyn
