      We can't refuse that we are causing the climate change looking at this picture...

      Some photos gain value in time - lots of time. The odd thing is that those which stand alone as "pretty" have so little value compared to, for example, pictures of people and situations made long ago. Well this looks like a photo that may just last for quite some time in value.

      This is the cover for 'The Oxford History of Modern War' by Charles Townshend. Good book.

      I think the date is wrong--that war was over in '88. At least I hope it wasn't burning for 2 years...
