    1. And I thank you πŸ˜‰
      This was Old Montreal, the brand-new ferris wheel (talk about oxymoron) about an hour before midnight. We actually were ON (IN? closed cabin) the thing at midnight, facing the fireworks. Surreal…

      1. You mentioned the Ferris Wheel named after it’s dad, George Washington Ferris. It’s one of my favorite, all time rides, and the very first one was made for the Chicago World’s Fair, in 1893. I wasn’t sure of the date. Next to Aunt Jemima Pancake Mix, it was the biggest hit at the fair…:)

    1. Thank you, Monika. Was the coolest ever New Year celebration I ever participated in. 8 friends, down to 5 by the time we boarded the ferris wheel, the snow turned to rain, we cared not one whit…

    1. Rochelle,

      I was flicking through here and I read “Marco”, which made me think . . . who’s adressing me on WW? Frank is usually the only one who does so, because he’s such a snarky feller.

      A FF prompt? Coo!

      Peace and Happy Jan 3rd!

      Shalom,

      Marco

      1. No not at all, I dig Marco.
        My comment was in reference to how I flick through comments on WW to like them, without paying much if any attention to what they’re saying since it’s either for Linds B or Q of the North, LOL.

        Glad you caught my eye, πŸ™‚

  2. How did find this site? I ask. Was I attracted to the Ferris wheel; to Montreal where I lived through two freezing winters way back before the dawn of time; the clever repartee between you and some of your followers, or is it because its almost 1 am on Friday morning and my fingers did the walking through some blog posts. In any event, I’m glad i found you. I may be back on another hot night when sleep eludes me,

    1. Very glad you enjoyed my picture, Judith. I’m just a weekly photo collaborator.
      If you stop by here again, you will be treated to fabulous writing by the author of this blog, something I highly recommend. πŸ™‚

  3. Mr. Marc, I’m curious *raises eyebrow a la Spock*. Why do you post Ms. Rogerson’s photos on Wordless Wednesday? (Are you her art dealer? I’d like to buy! πŸ™‚ ) Curious 2: Why don’t YOU post photos of your own, too?

    Ya know, I think to myself every week, “I should totally do Wordless Wednesday.” And then I never do… Damn time flying and earth spinning and all that jazz.

    1. T-Siz,

      Well aren’t you the inquisitive one. πŸ˜‰

      Ms Rogerson was kind enough to offer a pic a while back and it just kind of became a weekly thing from there. She offered and I said absotively. You’re spot on about the artistic quality of these photographs. I COULD be her art dealer.

      As for me posting photos of my own, it just aint ‘ma thing. I am not a picture taker, and some would say this is a result of having grown up in a mafia neighborhood. But truth be told, I ain’t got the desire necessary to shimmy a shutter. I enjoy looking at other peep’s photographs though.

      And really, the idea of this blog being wordless dripped with irony, so there’s that.

      1. I believe, Mr. Marc, that at the very beginning of our, um, collaboration, you pilfered – I mean borrowed – my pics so I decided to keep you on the straight and narrow and offer them to you. Yanno, so’s you could be all legit and all that πŸ™‚
        Dealer? Let’s talk.

        There is quite the irony of you being wordless.

      1. How cool!
        It does look ridiculously familiar. Ours is also between Old Montreal and the river (that little stretch of land behind it has a skating rink, a pier and then the St. Lawrence.
