Foto Friday: Fine Arts

Woof! Just getting in under the wire today. I had to do some work (so unfair!) that took up most of the day. Have some fine arts.

I was going to gripe that this wasn't the greatest picture in the world, but then I cropped it and fiddled with it, and it turned out much better than I'd thought.

So, I've changed my mind: it is the greatest picture in the world. Except for some of my other ones.

Don't have much to say about the P of FA, except that it's real neat, and that there's a cheesy MST3K movie -- whose name will suddenly occur to me in about three weeks -- that has a brief scene in which stunt men in Roman-ish armor perform a little tepid swordplay amongst the columns.

I nearly choked when I saw it. It kinda precipitates the disbelief when you recognize Ancient Whatsopolis from your vacation. "Watch out, Maximus! I tripped over that sidewalk in 1996!"
