If you stare into the void, the void stares back at you. If you
stare into your navel, your belly button lint will reach into your eyes
and suck out your soul.  Be careful..... (unknown)

Egypt, a personal view

The Moving Finger writes; and, having writ, Moves on: nor all your Piety nor Wit Shall lure it back to cancel half a Line, Nor all your Tears wash out a Word of it....from Omar Khayyam ( alias "Omar The Tentmaker" ) Exerpted from the Rubiayat, circa 1120 CE


This is a photo of Burgan field during the height of the firefighting efforts. It was taken in full daylight, and somewhere above the blackness is a noonday sun. The distant fires are reflected in a lake of crude oil which covered most of the area.

Dusk across an oil lake, ghosted by a lone white cloud. Center of photo is a single burning gas flare, illuminating the remains of a destroyed Iraqi tank.

Burgan in the final days of the fires. This is a ground fire caused from the flames of oil soaked earth actually burning. The fire is a couple of kilometers away and very dense.

The "original" color of the earth can be seen in the newly pushed road. Fallout of oil from the many fires has darkened the entire area. This picture was taken in the very south end of the Burgan field about 5km south of the previous photo and several months later.

Freedom Tower

Kuwait today is restored with little outward signs of the conflict. Public gardens abound and life for the most part is quiet and peaceful.

And here is my apartment and me at the computer....( Hopefully I will get some more pictures published soon...! )

SCOTLAND....My scanner isn't's outta beer. Please try later, 'cuz it's real pretty.'s awesome, Scotland that scanner's pretty ugly and unlike me it's also reasonably functional.

ENGLAND, FINLAND, YEMEN, SYRIA AND THE EMIRATES pages all suffer from the same problem....
