#Photography for the Beautiful 7/13

London, England

Oh, that's right.  Royalty isn't so bad after you see Queen Letizia.  We see now how it goes with you.

Tenerife, Spain

The Rockhouse thinks it's beautiful to see how people like to take their religious icons out on walks, even to the beach.

Yangzhou, China

Sometimes an artist may say contemptuously, "Oh, you just like the colors."

Yes, we do ... and shamelessly.

Westland, US

There are many reasons to go to Michigan.  This isn't one of them but there are others.

Eymet, France

Of course Le Tour needs to be represented and this was likely a difficult shot since you see how the trees and foliage are blurred and yet the riders are in relatively sharp focus which gives an excellent impression of speed.  Trying to catch anything at speed will test a photographer's skill.

Bangalore, India

As I live and breathe, it's the Rambo Circus.

It's hopefully a forgivable editorial intrusion when we say Insane Clown Posse should never have been allowed inside a music store since anyone who steals clowns from children by making them scary doesn't have anything to say anyone really needs to hear.  The Rockhouse loves clowns; conversely, we do not love Juggalos.
