Oasis of the Seas
This is the largest cruise ship ever built. It’s a monster and while cruising like this isn’t my thing, the technical aspects of this project are fascinating.
Check out the various videos, especially the entire “building” section and within that, the one on “propulsion.” Wow.
Mark Menjivar: You Are What You Eat

New York City. A quick shot looking up into the fog before we went inside Grand Central and boarded the train home.

Washington, Connecticut. Took a long walk through Steep Rock Preserve, continuing down to Judd’s Bridge in Roxbury, then back on the other side. Fall colors were spectacular. One of our longest walks yet in this area.

The Big Picture has an incredible collection of images from Afghanistan.

Great, all that learning in ceramics for nothing.
