Wind Chimes

Along Dublin's Grand Canal

Along Dublin’s Grand Canal

I came across these chimes, hanging from a tree along Dublin’s Grand Canal near Baggot Street Bridge. They were part of a larger shrine or memorial – but to whom? It appeared to be dedicated to the memory of an unnamed child, perhaps lost by drowning in the canal…..and I wondered if the sound of those little bells was reminiscent of the child’s laughter.

Encountered this huge beast/boat of a car at Vineland Estates Winery, Niagara, Ontario.

There is something compellingly excessive and ‘over the top’ about it

  – yet strangely streamlined and ‘retro’ -

that demanded a photograph.

Note the vestigial tail fins…..
