I previously paired the Fort Snelling photo with that of another soldier, guarding the presidential palace in Athens. I like this pairing even better.

This is my 50th blog, so I wanted to post some images that are colorful and celebratory. It's been an interesting project to find photos that match in some way. I'm pleased that I haven't run out. In fact, I've just received scans of over 900 slides from before 2001, when I started digital photography, of trips to southern Africa, Ecuador and the Galapagos, China, Poland, and Germany. So I'll have many more potential matches.
