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.

Wonderful -- I especially love the charcuterie which shares your blog's name!

I second that! And great to see you too, Beth.

I thought of you! You might be interesting in visiting Iceland again in a series of posts by a couple of artists who have been going to different countries using local models and materials for their fascinating photos: Eyes as Big as Plates - http://eyesasbigasplates.wordpress.com/

One foot in Canada, one foot on the Left Bank.

Beautiful. Did you use the camera on your phone or a separate camera? If separate, what do you use?

Love it, Beth---especially the last photo of you. :-)

Thanks, all. Roderick, I have to tell you that black wool berets have been my headgear of choice for decades, long before I ever came to Montreal. Here I think more men wear them than women.

Kathryn, these pictures were taken with the camera in my Nexus 7" tablet. Usually, though, I use a Canon Powershot S110, which is a fantastic camera, and very very small.

Marja-Leena, heading right now to look at Eyes Big as Plates!

Marja-Leena, thank you -- I've been poring over those photos of Iceland and the wonderful portrait sessions. (I've seen their work before but didn't remember the name.) Gosh. That landscape gets right inside me every time I see it - but I also looked at the photos of the Faroe Islands and now I want to go there too! Wasn't the portrait of the fisherman with the cod heads amazing?

Love those eye-popping colors and those great glasses!!!
