oops! It says which Bill Bryson right there! I love the L&T of the TK!The bit about his parent playing dentists makes me laugh until it hurts!

This image is interesting. I want to go and sit on that chair but feel uncertain about entering the room. Kind of strange. Well done.

Looks old. Step through the door, step back in time.

A very interesting shot.

@chicken: psssshhhht, I am on page 132, no parent-dentist so far. But he went to the dentist already: "'Whoa', he'd say as he briefly enlivened some screaming device or the other. 'You could do some damage with that I bet!'"

@Shaun: funny, this is exactly what I felt when I took the picture.

It is an abandoned school house in a small village nearby Lucca, Italy. This is one of the photos that look better in original size, I am not satisfied with this small size version for the blog, but .. whatever ... ;-)

You'll know when you get to the part I'm talking about. "I'm just checking mom's teeth" is the line that makes me laugh most!

Martina said...

Chicken, read it last night. Hehehe, :-)

The only just discernible chair makes this image, Martina.

As you know, I am a sucker for this sort of shot. Very nice ...
