Small world...

I've been hearing that for a l-o-n-g time.

What with the Internet, it can truly seem that way.

For example, we can visit Hawaii right now.
(I'll go there for real in a couple of weeks)

As I've posted previously, I like to check Site Meter occasionally to see who's been looking at my blog, and from where. I only do so every week or so, and can only see the 100 most recent visits at any given time, so the following list of countries is in all probability incomplete...but here are the ones that I know of from 2009:

Albania, Angola, Argentina, Armenia, Australia, Austria, Bahamas, Belgium, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Ecuador, Egypt, Equatorial Guinea, Estonia, Ethiopia, Europe, Finland, France, Georgia, Germany, Greece, Guatemala, Holy See (Vatican City State), Hungary, Iceland, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Jamaica, Japan, Jordan, Korea, Kuwait, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Macau, Malaysia, Malta, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Pakistan, Peru, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Qatar, Romania, Russian Federation, Saudi Arabia, Serbia and Montenegro, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, South Africa, Spain, Sri Lanka, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Tanzania, Thailand, Trinidad and Tobago, Turkey, Ukraine, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, Venezuela, and Yemen.

So far, 3 weeks into 2010, I have the following:

Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Indonesia, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Malaysia, Mexico, Morocco, Netherlands, New Caledonia, Nigeria, Philippines, Poland, Russian Federation, Singapore, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Thailand, Turkey, United Kingdom, and Uruguay.

Most of them are looking at various images.

I wonder how many are "repeat offenders"...

Un estudio comparativo...

...which means (En Inglés) what it would seem: a comparative study. In this case, of photography.

On my recent trip to Peru, I took a lot of pictures.

Let's see how they compare with images on the "Da 'Net".

My picture will be first, followed by one found on the Internet. Also, a link to the site where I found the image will be embedded in the description/name.

SaqsayWaman (pronounced almost like "Sexy Woman"):

(Image of snake built into wall)


(The grass is greener on...my picture)


(Slightly different P.O.V.)

Machu Picchu:

(No, mine is not a "Photoshop" job)

Nazca lines:

(Quite similar, huh?)


(No sepia tone added to my picture)

Nazca aqueducts:

(There are quite of few of these wells)

Of course, surfing "Da 'Net" is cheaper...
