Beautiful photos, John! And nice eye for catching the Brokieishness of such disparate scenes. I especially like the connection in the one of the guy on the bench.

(I'll admit I'm a bit confused by the swan connection  ???. Can anyone enlighten me?)

I also learned that Haigh directed what's become an iconic gay movie in 2011: Weekend. I think I'll have to check it out.  Meanwhile, I recommend you all check out 45 Years.

Will definitely put that on my "must-see" list, friend!
May 2019 be better for us all.

Thanks, Katherine!

Re the swan--

I thought both boys were young, innocent, beautiful, vulnerable. Too anthropomorphic I'm sure, but--I thought Heath/Ennis kept his head low like that
(of course the swan is probably just scratching its neck)--

Canadian Farmer's Sheep Are
Masters of Disguise in Snowy Field

500 'invisible' sheep are captured in one photo

Published Nov 10 2015 01:53 PM EST

After intense search I manage to spot one sheep. 499 to go. : ) Thanks John for sharing. Hilarious.



Liezel Kennedy became a bit of an internet sensation over the weekend after she tweeted a photo of a seemingly empty snowy field on her Saskatchewan farm recently, captioned "Could hardly find my sheep this morning!"

There are more than 500 sheep in the photo, but their dirty-brown wool blends in perfectly with the browns, tans and whites of a winter field.

Kennedy, who told weather.com that she's been raising sheep for five years, says it's not unusual for the sheep to be hidden behind a hill or a fold in the landscape on her 640-acre farm, "but it's not a regular occurrence for them to blend in THAT well!"

It does happen though. After online interest in her original tweet ramped up, Kennedy posted several more photos of her fields in the spring and summer and her sheep are just as invisible, real masters of disguise in all seasons.

"In summer we have cross fences to rotate them through the grass but in winter we take those down," Kennedy said. "We check on them twice a day to check for sick animals, feed the guardian dogs, put out salt and mineral, check water, etc."

While the sheep are master's of disguise, Kennedy has other livestock who are masters of escape. Pilgirm Farms stocks, sheep, cattle, horses and goats, and it's the goats you really have to keep an eye on.

"The goats ... are escape artists and find the tiniest gap in the fence," Kennedy told weather.com. "They always come back though once they've checked out the greener grass on the other side."
