More Faces in the Crowd

Love this week’s Daily Post Photo Challenge. Self has tons of “faces in the crowd” pictures. TONS.

Here are three more:

  • Waterloo Bridge, June 2017

DSCN0895

  • The Louvre, May 2017

DSCN0677

  • The Crowd in Front of the Mona Lisa, May 2017: This has to be seen to be believed. As you probably can guess, the Mona Lisa is on the left.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.

 

THE ROMANOVS, 1613-1918, p. 52

Hugely enjoying this massive tome, so much so that self took it with her to Black Panther, and kept reading until the theater lights went down.

Chapter on Tsar Alexei Mikhailovich, also known as the “Young Monk” :

Meschersky found the chief armourer Bogdan Khitrovo, nicknamed the “Whispering Favourite,” guarding the Red Staircase, brandishing his jewel-encrusted staff of office to hold back importuning crowds. He punched Meschersky.

“You shouldn’t strike me — I’m here on duty.”

“Who are you?” asked Khitrovo, who knew perfectly well.

“The patriarch’s servitor.”

“Don’t make so much of yourself. Why should we respect the patriarch?” and with that he smashed him on the head with his baton, sending him bleeding back to Nikon.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.
