WPC – State of Mind

How blue is your canoe?

Steate of Mind provides an interesting challenge direction, as our state of mind can vary across a wide spectrum.  But, never worry, as I may have take on this, and, no, it’s not the wondrous Yoga Tree this week…

Our state of mind can go into many directions.  In ths image, we can infer something about the state of mind of the canoe’s owner… is it hopeful for warmer weather or ennui with Winter’s onslaught?

Friday’s Mystery Slide – vol 2

Don’t be koi about this challenge

As last Friday’s mystery slide got a very positive response, I figured that I’d post another one from quite a while ago.  This time, the slide didn’t have the answer marked on it, as it just said “#2”, but I think some smart readers can tell me a little about the following image:

Where are we?

This image is another slide scan from the collection of slides that I received from my father-in-law.  Clearly, his father did a bit of traveling, as there are airplanes in the image.

This location has some interesting features, such as the fish pond and the pagoda and looks rather peaceful.

I am looking forward to what you can tell me about this location and its history.

What kind of gas do we have here?

Today, I want to start something a little different: present you with a mystery.  Not a deep, dark mystery to be sure, but, rather, something from the past that may interest both young and old.

Holy Gasbag! What do we have here?

This image is a scan from a slide, that was not taken by me; I came upon a collection of slides that my father-in-law was going to throw out (they were wrapped up neatly in a paper towel with tape marked trash on them).

Luckily, he was nice enough to check and see, if I wanted the containers that they were stored in, so I asked him, if I could have the slides too.  He kind of shrugged and said, “Sure”.

This was a couple of years ago and I promptly bought a slide scanner, but never touched them until this week.  After getting a new driver for the scanner from the manufacturer in Taiwan, I fired it up last night and let it scan the first 36 slides.

That is when I noticed this slide that I present to you as a mystery.  What do you make of it?  What is this location?  What is its purpose?

Hope you enjoy this little mystery.  If you do, I may bring out more slides from this collection.  I’m curious to see what all of you can bring to the light.
