When I found out the Crystal Palace was no more I cried.
This is beautiful.

I'm bound and determined to comment on every damn photo today, but I have nothing to say about this. Still, I thought I would comment. I need help.

downtown guy said...

Well, I was mighty excited to see a whole list of comments from you, so keep on with it. I appreciate every single one.

Sarcastic Bastard said...

You can say that shit again.

downtown guy said...

Well, I was mighty...

Actually, that joke is too old even for me.

What is this Crystal Palace? What is this dinosaur park?! This picture is not the same but reminds me of pictures of the old world fairs and how elaborate they were and how little of them is left and that PISSES ME OFF. Which is why we need to go to the Wizarding World of H. P. come February, just to walk around in a fake magic world.

May, look it up, it's really cool. This guy built all these life-sized dinos and scattered them around a big park to look at and walk among. But, he did it when they were just beginning to put dino skeletons together, so they look all weird and have things that turned out to be thumbs as horns and so on. And agreed on HP.

This pic reminded me of tiny town. Is that still a work in progress? You could add creatures to the landscape if so. I vote for the dinacorn and unisaurus.

downtown guy said...

Ha! I stalled out making the church - I need to go back to it.

Ms. Moon said...

Yeah! I was just thinking of Tiny Town the other day! We need Tiny Town!

I hear the call!
