I can wait here, if you want to pour 2 ounces of wine (or anything, really)  into a large-ish wine glass.

When you come back, we can laugh at the false promises in this ad.

But if you don’t want to conduct that experiment, we can go ahead and discuss why that man in the ad is holding two glasses of wine and why his torso seems to be extraordinarily long.

The sea’s power is incomprehensible

Another shot from my visit with Ehpem, who showed me all the best places in Victoria.

I live on the plains. We don’t have many trees. And no oceans, of course. I really just can’t get my head around how much power the ocean has, that it can toss these logs around the way it does. I’d sort of like to see it happen. (From somewhere that’s warm and dry, of course.)

A precarious situation

My friend Donna Catterick and I spent some time exploring this old ice house. We’d walked under those tanks a few times before she noticed how much they were leaning.

It was an interesting coincidence that we were through shooting at almost the very same time she pointed out the precarious situation…

A marked trail

From this angle, it’s a little hard to know if those rocks are going up the trail to meet the storm, or coming down in an effort to escape it.

Of course, there’s always the possibility that they are just rocks, doing what rocks do: biding their time until they’ve eroded away.*

*I actually don’t know if that’s how it works. My college geology class was a long time ago.

If you’ve been around this blog for very long, there’s a pretty good chance that you’ve seen some other photos of Santa Rosa; it’s one of my favorite locations. The place has a lot going for it: it’s close enough to Lubbock that it’s not a huge deal to get there; my spouse goes there as often as possible to scuba dive (really!) which gives me time to wander around; there’s a huge inventory of derelict structures.

You may recognize this building, which has made a couple of previous appearances here at One Day | One Image: here. And here.

I like the building. I like its very non-PC name. I like that giant canopy. I like…well…I sort of like all of it.
