The next […]

Here’s the index to all the preceding posts in this series, and I’m grateful to all for sharing. If you suffer from perfect photographic memory, then the ferry in the middle distance under the bridge will serve as a clue to the location of this shot;  it’s a water bus, an efficient conveyance of passengers […]
