That's a great angle!! It should be from a dinosaur movie.

Kate said...

Oh my, JM, I hope this fine animal is not here to stay with you. Happy New Year to you. Enjoy 2012

My ignorance sometimes overwhelms me...I had never heard of the Schengen Treaty. Don't think I much like it, now that I have heard about it.

Funny post and it brought to mind the morons running for the Republican presidential nomination in the U.S., none of which believe in evolution...the theory which is the basis of all scientific study. So they wouldn't accept your vicious creature as more than, oh, maybe 6,000 years old! :-)

Striking image! I would really like to see both: the exhibit and the former factory.

Jack said...

Now, THAT will wake me up.

Andrew said...

Fantastic...

Dinosaur exhibitions seem to be all the rage these days ... kids love them. I like the nautical simplicity of the building.

Even more than the cool dinosaur, I like the idea of a rope and sail factory.
