The Saturday Picture Show, June 18, 2015

This is what's left when a flood recedes but it's just about 32º and ice forms as the waters recede!
Next Friday the 24th will mark the final edition of Keith Olbermann's show on ESPN2.  I understand that he's not to everyone's taste, given the preponderant number of people who stop me on the street to say they can't stand him. He's smart and he's a walking encyclopedia of sports and a whole lot of other things, so naturally ESPN had to dump him.  There's an election coming next year and someone will hire him!  I'll let you know...
Near the shoreline of Ft Bragg, California, there was a trash dump with many many colorful bottles. The water overtook the dump and now the beach is known as Sea Glass Beach.  This really must look special with the sun beating down on it.
It took 9 1/2 years for a spaceship the size of a piano to travel from Earth to Pluto and send back vacation snapshots.  Since the return trip from a holiday getaway always seems much shorter, look for the spaceship to be back by Labor Day.
This was taken on January 1, 2007 in Perth, Australia.  As Perth welcomed in the New Year, the Comet McNaught made a special guest appearance between the fireworks and the lightning from a passing thunderstorm.

This foamy, surfy scene was off the coast of Portugal. Imagine being up in that lighthouse!  Me neither.
When you take a picture, perspective matters.  Or, is this the largest dog in the world?
From the name of this week's classic album cover, it sounds more like it was recorded in the infirmary of a boarding school where a lot of kids have hacking coughs and colds.
