Weekly Photo Challenge: Zigzag


In Freebie and The Bean, Alan Arkin is a detective trying to run across the road with bullets zinging around him. He starts running and he’s almost across when his partner James Caan tells him he has to zig zag.

So Arkin runs back across the road to do it again, only properly.

I love the non sequitur of him running the risk of being shot crossing the road zig zagging, when he already crossed the road.

The building I saw today has some zig, but lacks in the zag department. It’s an installation being built in the grounds of the Modern Art Museum in Edinburgh.



Sheep Under Trees

Sheep under trees – I’m really not sure – are they under the trees, or beneath the trees, or are both ways of saying it OK?

They are surely not below the trees, are they?

They are below the tree line, but that doesn’t count.


More Comment Spam

In the couple of days since I changed from to I have seen a big increase in spam comments.

What does it mean, Tonto?

I think it means that spambots prefer what look to them like main domains rather than ‘’ subdomains.
