Arena Stage @ Roskilde Festival

Roskilde Festival - Arena Stage

#rf16 @orangefeeling

One of the lovely things about going to live shows in Denmark (especially the Roskilde Festival) is you can stand up front without being crushed. In addition, you can obtain water to stay hydrated without losing your spot.

Today’s photo happened while “Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats” were on stage.

Alcatraz’s D Block

Alcatraz “D block”

I’ve always been fascinated with Alcatraz. Today’s photo is almost 10-years old, but it features Alcatraz’s most notorious block–the one with solitary confinement (lower right). There weren’t many solitary confinement cells at Alcatraz, but all were in D block.

200 degrees of the Bright Angel Trail

12-photo photomerge of the Grand Canyon's Bright Angel Trail after snow

Today’s photo (a 12-photo photomerge actually) is from our New Year’s Eve hike down Bright Angel Trail after snow fell during the night. We didn’t go all the way down, not even close. But this was a spectacular trail even with limited visibility, and the trail probably wasn’t as crowded as it is much of the time.

Hiroshima Peace Memorial (AKA Atomic Bomb Dome or Genbaku Dōmu)

When I visited the Atomic Bomb Dome in 2013, work was being done on it. The construction was not to bring it back to its former, pre WW2 state; instead, it was to keep it from falling to pieces during an earthquake.
