January 28th pictures — an old globe and places I would dearly like to go to

What’s more fun than an old globe, except perhaps a trip to the Fireworks, Candy, and Puppy Dog Store? I particularly like this old globe with its spidery patches of missing paint obliterating the existence of entire countries. I also find the below message to the teachers particularly quaint.

"Don't worry, you don't actually have to memorize this crap."

Last night I was giving the globe a spin — okay, it’s not actually mounted on anything so I have to manually turn it in my hands, boy life is hard — and saying to myself, hey, I should go here. And here. And here and here and here. And here are some of those places.

Uhhh...I think that's the Galápagos Islands at the intersection of the equator and that latitude line. If not, this was supposed to be a picture of the Galápagos.

That is quite enough idle dreaming for now.

    • Go for it! I didn’t think to include pictures of places I’ve already been — wouldn’t have taken too long, either, it’s kind of a modest list. But it’s a list and it exists, so that’s something. Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Love photographing ordinary in unusual ways or with creative ideas in mind. Terrific idea leaving room for the viewer to imagine along with the photographs.

  2. I like it. So far I have made it to four of these places. Reykjavik and Cape Town are high up on my list. I prefer Antarctica which is also high on my list. We get enough Canadians here in South Florida, so Montreal has not made it onto my list. 🙂

    • So by process of elimination you’ve made it to Alaska, Chile, the UK and the Galapagos? Very cool. Just checked out your blog and saw even more places to be envious of! Thanks for stopping by!

  3. This is an awesome idea and one I may well borrowl if I have trouble coming up with something to photograph one day in this 365. Great pictures.
