    Well now, who knew. This one is definitely the most popular photo in my photo stream. Thanks y'all! - update: I also submitted this one to the Musee de L'Elysee as shown here.

    Update: Thanks to the Wallpaper and Backgrounds group for making this the Wallpaper of the Month! Very cool!

    Update: Sadly this photo was stolen and used without attribution on the book Houston Quick Escapes. I emailed the author and publisher and was told basically "bummer, go after the guy who stole it and sold it to us." Nice. Apparently theft is profitable even if a photo is Creative Commons. Sheesh.

    Erci, Boudewijn Boer (Bo), Ernie :+), and 755 other people added this photo to their favorites.

      THank you for allowing Creative Commons on this. It might be good as a background on an article with 'serendipity' in the title. I will credit your name if used of course. ;-)

      Mr. Schipul, I've used this shot to accompany a TCEQ press release on the website of a newspaper published in Liberty, Texas, called The Vindicator. Here's a link to it:
