Wow, Karen -  DollGuy -  image no. 1 - is a killer. But as to your
"Some find this to be a troubling photo, but is the "trouble" entirely

No, it's not evidence of our societal prejudices, unless reacting
negatively to a very strong suggestion of pedophelia is a 'societal
prejudice.' ;-) That is, at least to my eye and mind, one extremely
troubling photo - which is what makes it so interesting. I'm not
troubled by a man being a doll collector, if that's what your comment is
meant to suggest. Rather, I'm very troubled by the combination of the
adult man's expression and the blank doll face.

Sometimes, as Sigy said, a cigar is indeed just a cigar! :-)

Karen, I liked both the selection and the format.  The smallish images
quickly and the text adds a lot to the viewing experience.  Easy to 
navigate and interesting to look at -- a good combination.  A lot of us 
probably envy your opportunities to travel to neat places.  Thanks for
