Who was Cassandra?


  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.

Like it. Trouble is, it would be hard to go finding visual puns to photograph - they find you rather than the other way round.

I've just read a book set in the French-speaking part of Canada: Fred Vargas' Sous les vents de Neptune, or Wash this Blood Clean from my Hands.

I've read that book and I remember I meant to mention it to you, Beth. It's about French cops visiting Quebec and their take on the place, on social relationships and assumptions and the Quebec French idiom.

That is quite a photo. It reminded me of the underground in Toronto, which amazed me.
