The Little Prince's flower

“At night I want you to put me under a glass globe”
The little Prince said “I ought not to have listened to her,”
he confided to me one day.
“One never ought to listen to the flowers,
one should simply look at them and breath their fragrance.
Mine perfumed all my planet.
But I did not know how to take pleasure in all her grace.."
Antoine de Saint-Exupery.

The Eiffel Tower

Thanks to everbody that left nice comments, thanks also to Chris in Philly,
'A Colossus' was just the word I was looking for,
I will use it in the blog, Thanks!

Viewed nearly 3000 times, up to the top 3 in interestingness!
It has to be my most popular image to date in Flickr...

I do hope the name of Algeria isnt taken in an anti-French way, It just happend to be on the retro globe below Europe! o_O

Chris in Philly said:
'The Tower as a colossus. It's also cool how you did the sky then the stratosphere and the top of the tower goes off into space! Great stuff.'

The Walrus and the Carpenter

The Walrus and the Carpenter
Were walking close at hand:
They wept like anything to see
such quantities of sand:
'If this were only cleared away',
They said, 'it would be grand !'

'If seven maids with seven mops
Swept it for a year,
Do you suppose', the Walrus said,
'That they could get it clear?'
'I doubt it,' said the carpenter,
And shed a bitter tear,
