I saw the Great Wall of China for the first time in July, 1987.  It was truly amazing to see that giant wall snaking across the ridge line north of Beijing.

This image was created from a slide I made in July, 1987.

We have several beautiful iris around our yard.  This elegant beauty, Cantina,  is in the bed nearest the road and always manages to attract the attention of people walking by.

The picture on which this drawing was based is shown below.
