"Kaleidoscope" derives from the Greek καλός (kalos), "beautiful" + είδος (eidos), "shape" + σκοπέω (scopeο), "to look at, to examine".
Just wanted to let you know that I really enjoy your photos. Reading stuff on Google reader, you tend to think "oh that's nice" and then move along. I thought I would pause and pop in and say thanks for sharing:)
Thanks Shelagh, I really appreciate you stopping by and leaving a comment!
