The War of Transnistria

EnglishRussia has some photos from the War of Transnistria from back in 1992.  From Wikipedia:

The War of Transnistria involved armed clashes on a limited scale that broke out between Transnistrian Republican Guard, militia and Cossack units, supported by the Russian 14th army, and Moldovan troops and police forces as early as November 1990 at Dubăsari (Russian: Дубоссáры, Dubossary). Fighting intensified on 1 March 1992, with the accession of newly independent Moldova into the UN and alternated by ad hoc ceasefires, lasted throughout spring and early summer 1992 until a ceasefire was declared on 21 July 1992, which has held ever since.

Check it out, there’s lots more to see.

Photo of the day – A bridge to somewhere


I took a boat ride around the Upper New York Bay yesterday…hence no posting.  Pictures to go up on Flickr (and a few here) over the next day or so.  First, enjoy a bridge without all the traffic.

For the birds

I’m not a ‘bird guy’.  I have a couple of feeders and will occasionally watch what stops by but I can’t tell any but the most basic bird calls.

Still, Andrew Zuckerman’s bird photos are really amazing and his book is on my wishlist.

Me?  I’m a humble guy with a pretty average camera.  At the risk of over playing my hand with too many pictures of the blue herons that have set up shop on my bike route to work, I give you:

Exclusive! Early photos of the Armchair Generalist!

Ok, this is totally echo chamber stuff but I saw this and immediately thought of everyone’s favorite chemical weapons analyst (h/t English Russia) …
