There's this really large egg-shaped sculpture in Vegreville, Alberta . . .

. . . and it spins in the wind.

I've made two previous attempts to capture this happening. I just have to wait until it gets windy enough. It's almost always windy here, but it has to be at least 19 kph (12 mph) to get the Pysanka (Ukrainian Easter egg) moving.

Yesterday was a good day for filming only because the wind was blowing and I was there and I brought along the iPhone 4 and a tripod. The sky is rather dreary, but the snow flakes add snap to the visuals. I also like that there's some snow on top of the egg.

Toby Jones versus . . .

It's a coincidence that Toby Jones has now been in two movies portraying real-life people at about the same time when much more famous actors play that same real-life person. 

I'd argue that Jones actually looks more like his real-life characters than the more famous actors. Beyond that I have no particular insight. It's just interesting.
