Travel theme – Simplicity

Ailsa’s theme this week? Simple: pictures simply illustrating “simplicity”.

Some creatures are naturally simple.

SimplicityWilliamsburgChickensChickens are pretty straightforward – if it looks tasty, peck at it. Nothing complicated to see here.

And then there are sights that have been artfully pared down to simplify what we see.

But the history of the Barnes and its founder is much too complicated to explain here.
