the ones that get away

or maybe the ones left behind- since there is such brouhaha these days about the new book called the Leftovers about those not taken in a "rapture- like" event...

but that isn't what I am referring to- I am referring to the photos that I really like but that somehow just don't fit into the flow of the books I make for each of my trips...

an example- when was the last time you saw a row of working phone booths in the US?

a few more that caught my eye-

or saw a sign like any of these? LOL

then there are ones like TB getting his glacier water drink - just didn't fit into the physical layout:

or the photos of stupid behavior on the part of other travelers - like the guy who - having been warned by numerous signs to stay in your vehicle if you see bears- - not only got out of his rent-a-camper but left the door open so his family could be mauled too - LOL - AND he stopped in the middle of the road so no one else could pass....

or the ones that just don't fit in the "good taste" (and we do use the term loosely) of the book-  like the standard national park facilities we encountered during the entire trip:

or on the other end of the spectrum - the lovely luxury of the Lake Louise lodge - which also just didn't really jive with the overall thematic approach of the book either- something about hotels only doctors could afford - LOL

and finally - some just don't make it because I run out of pages- the limit is 101.... and no matter how beautiful there just isn't any more room...
