You are right about the items around. but the fruit is actually NOT half-eaten, but cut for the ritual, say, to let the spirit taste it. The logic of the ritual is very simple. It's like serving "tea and biscuit' for your guest, and saying hello.
Oh, I see. No offence intended.
And there's actually few bears left in Korea, but a wild boar, maybe. Though I never saw one in my life.
Those wild boars seem to be absolutely everywhere, but never in any great numbers. Strange, considering it's mostly a herbivore.

I'll post two soon, one to mirror William's (me on the top of St Peter's with Rome in the background ) and one of me taken two weeks ago :).

Can't wait to see them. Have never been to either city but would love to go.

Emma, that's great! If we piece our two pictures together we'll have a panoramic view of Rome. When were you there, by the way?

Hmm... how far apart in time were those two pics taken? They look like two different people... What's that white thing on your left shoulder (in the woods pic)? Another plastic bullhorn?

I went to Rome just this summer in June, the other photo was taken three weeks ago. I think the problem is that it was very windy and sunny in Rome so I'm pulling a bit of a face in that picture... plus the lighting makes my face look strange... hehehe
The white thing is one of the straps from my old school bag, which in reality is really dirty.

Well, I suppose Rome changes your hair color too. :D Anyways, you're right, it has that Godfather kind of lighting where shadows are cast under your eyes. The other pic I assume is shot from a higher angle because we see more of the top of your head. It's an effect to make your face more narrow. It's also lighted from the front. For some people, it's a normal phenomenon to look really different from picture to picture because their face is sensitive to photographic variance. You just need to change one aspect of photography like lighting or angle --and voila, you have a new person: Godfather Emma :D Photography is fun and really helps with drawing and vice versa. Illustrators and painters that are snobby and snooty about photography have to learn the hard way about visual reality.

Not in a big city, but at home. All pictures of me in famous cities are from a pre-kids era. Nowadays, holiday pictures are of the kids in famous cities...or just of the kids, whereever they are.

So this is me behind the kids' computer. As you can see, they have been tearing at the wallpaper there :(.

When I was a child I tried several times to bring home hedgehogs (and salamanders, bats and so on) but my brother and I never convinced my mom.
Especially she didn't appreciate the snake :lol:

I do, though Jenny got to him once, she cut his wing, but he made a quick and full recovery. I'm really careful when he is out of his cage helping me with my Latin homework.

Primitive, you look awesome! a good friend of mine is a black belt :D

power breaking really isnt my specialty. i like more fancy stuff. i did in a demo; blindfolded jumping spinning back-kick through 3 boards. i might be able to break 5 boards. but thats just a guess.

Now I'm a year older. Not many changes in my appearance occured, except my nose is somehow less broken. :? Collagen remains the same.

Rimon-jad's first picture shows a boy with a smooth chin.
His second picture a budding man with some facial hair.
Now his avatar shows "someone" with a lot of hair.
