Where ever you go there you are.

with pins up to 3 May 2006.

The plane which I was on flew into Lima due to bad weather at it's original destination, Iquitos...

From there, a later plane was taken to Iquitos and the plan was to join a boat a little down river from there....( travelling down to it by canoe with small motor ). It is a recent realisation that I had travelled by plane or boat from the West Coast to the East, arriving a little south of the marked route into Belem and then up the coast to French Guiana and the Surinam border.......

27 days until India - after 2 or so weeks in hyderbad we'll be in Chennai for maybe 3 days to see J's family. they will take us to see the tsunami damage as well. we'll get to take a look at what uncle danny has spent his last many months doing.

“To put a city in a book, to put the world on one sheet of paper -- maps are the most condensed humanized spaces of all...They make the landscape fit indoors, make us masters of sights we can't see and spaces we can't cover.”

Butterflies are nature's angels, they remind us what a gift it is to be alive.

Map, Araschnia levana, karttaperhonen, Finland.

 

Map butterfly spring generation is mostly orange and summer generation mostly black. At first scientists thought they are different species because of the different colorations. Later it was found out that day length during development affects the coloration.

 

I like the fact it was named "map" as the underside of wings looks like a street map.

A male Summer brood Map butterfly photographed in Poland, where they were pretty common. I wish we had this exquisite species in England.

Another image from a trip to Poland back in 2017.

Directly behind a waterfall, lumps of ice has formed something that resembles an unfolded map of the world. At least with some imagination. Do you see it too?

A map I drew for a story I'm writing. I thought adding the real compass made it more interesting.
