His name is David Reid. I believe. His work is interesting. And I can’t resist pictures of men with bowler hats. Reminds me of that British TV series that is temporarily escaping me. His pics are dramatic. I found him at Deviant art. I wish him well.

But of course. The series was called The Avengers. Who could forget Dianna Rigg.





God’s plan or just good genes

14 11 2011

Everytime someone died. You’d see one. A mass card. On one side some information about the deceased. On the other side an icon of one of the Holy Family, Jesus, or one of the saints. Recently I’ve noticed that this includes Pope John Paul. There must be millions of these printed every year. And they are not cheap when you consider that they cost pennies to print. But the Church has always been good in business. You can’t really appreciate this until you go to Europe and see the Catholic stores that cater to the garments for priest and bishops, the utensils for the altars, the trinkets and keep sakes for tourists. I don’t know who decides finally what Christ or Mary or any of the saints looked like. But they sure were a good looking group of people. I’m not sure if that was part of God’s plan or just good genes.
