Sunset at my sister-in-law’s country house. Interior of Colombia. c.2015. (Sir? Haven’t you said you don’t much like sunset photos? I have. Said that. Scotty. Photos do poor justice to any sunset.) 😉


Vincennes Zoo, Paris. End of the 20th century. The last two polar bears alive after global warming. (Jump, Scotty, jump!)

Ceremonial door, West Africa. Dahomey/Benin maybe? Mid 20th century probably. De Young Museum, San Francisco, 2016. If you ever go to San Francisco, forget about the flowers in your hair, make sure you spare some time to visit this fantastic museum, in the Golden gate park. And don’t be fooled, the park is nowhere near the bridge.


Triceratops, Tlapan, Mexico. 2017. (Scotty! Real dinosaurs, please, not plastic!)

Washington, D.C. 2015. Before the Tramp. Sigh. How long till mid-term?


“Public transpot”, West Africa, early 21st century. Musée de l’Homme, Paris, 2017. Anybody noticed two R’s missing?


Individual transport. Mexico city. 2018.


Piccadilly circus, 2016.

SA 2013 Paris 122

Paris, near Beaubourg, 2015. “Come discover the yo(u)ng salad and our new dessert to share.”


The garden in Nairobi, c. 1969. A perfect combination English garden/tropical luxuriance/Kikuyu grass. The gardener, Lipoy, a Luo from Lake Victoria in the North was an artist. (Days when one took several shots in a row to produce a panorama.)


“Hello, ask for my little Kriek (cherry) Lambic (beer). Sudden death, est. 1686″. Paris, 2017. “Mort subite” is well-known Belgian beer.


Traditional analog camera, 1969. Some initiates on Earth used to carry those around the neck to perform acts of black and white magic. The most advanced actually captured colour representations of the overworld. With accessories, the combined weight of those cult artefacts could reach close to ten pounds.

Thank you for flying Equinoxio Time-Space shuttle. Scotty still owes you real dinosaurs.

All photos and text (c) BMO and Equinoxio. (Haven’t said that in a while) 🙂 Y’all be good.

  1. The original Lori’s Diner, the one you visited in the summer of 2016, closed its doors in January of 2017. There are two other locations but the nostalgia of the original remains.

    • My dear Soleil, you have an impressive memory. 🙂
      How sad that the place closed. It was really a gate to the Twilight zone. 😦
      Wishing you well. A bientôt.

  2. Yes, Scotty definitely owes us real dinosaurs! (Maybe just an iguana or two if you’re light on time travelling fuel). Yes, to one missing ‘r’ – transpot. Maybe didn’t look hard enough for t’other.

  3. Dear Brian, good morning! I enjoyed this pot-pourri very much. I must tell you I’m particularly taken with the spectacular garden in Nairobi and the panorama. I’m also impressed with the car hood photo, very much like the world of artist, Brian M. Viveros. The sunset photo is wonderful too, I love all things captured in silhouette. Thank you for a fun trip this morning. I hope the week has been good to you so far, wishing you well. ~ Mia

    • Morning to you too Mia. Glad you enjoyed the trip. That is the purpose. 🙂 Had to look up Viveros. Hadn’t heard of him. Now I can see what you mean. The garden in Nairobi was spectacular. There was a wild hedgehog living there I caught once. Ever so gently. Once in a ball they’re easy to pick up with open palms. Then you wait until they unfold. Cute little fellow. Called him Hector.
      Take good care of yourself.

    • Il est génial, n’est-ce pas? 🙂
      The only drawback was that they put it in too small a room. Not enough distance to take a good shop. Tsss… Glad you liked it.
      Selamat pagi kawan saya

    • Er, my politics? (I try not to delve too much in those) Ah. The “Tramp”? I really should say the Crook. Guy is leading us to WWIII. I swear. Stay in “Hell-ville” ❤
