Fallow Deer (Dama dama) stag running across the "15 acres" in the Phoenix Park, Dublin. There's been a herd here since the 17th century. They live completely wild elsewhere in Ireland, and were introduced by the Normans in the 12th century. Quite happy with this photo, thought it just side on, and the light wasn't the best...

I made several quick visits to this temple in December 2008. I was fascinated by the calm and peace in the middle of Seoul's hectic life. A buddhist monk walks by the Hall of the Great Hero or Daeung-jeon at Jogye-sa Buddhist Temple, Seoul, South Korea. Jogyesa is the main temple of the Jogye Order of Korean Buddhism, and has a important part in Seon Buddhism. Located in Gyeonji-dong, Jongno-gu within in the old city of Seoul. The greyness of the monk's clothes signify ashes and death.

Robert Indiana's LOVE sculpture, at the I-Land Tower, Shinjuku. "Love n. A temporary insanity curable by marriage or by removal of the patient from the influences under which he incurred the disorder. This disease, like caries and many other ailments, is prevalent only among civilized races living under artificial conditions; barbarous nations breathing pure air and eating simple food enjoy immunity from its ravages. It is sometimes fatal, but more frequently to the physician than to the patient." - Ambrose Bierce, The Devil's Dictionary

Continuing with my year-old icebergs... As I said last week, I've resolved to edit all the lovely iceberg photos that I didn't already edit - this one is January 3rd, 2008. I'll keep throwing a few news ones up now and then.... This time last year I was in the Southern Ocean, on board the Greenpeace ship Esperanza - we were looking for Japan's whaling fleet. We found them, and stopped them whaling for 14.5 days! Catch up with the campaign to end whaling » Oh, I miss the Antarctic, and want to go back... Lots more icebergs here »
