two odd photos

Yesterday, I took two photos of odd things while going on a Malta Geographical Society walk to Dingli Cliffs. There's a building being renovated near me (OK, dozens of them). Anyway, they have kept the facade, but there's no building yet behind it. Talk about "blue sky thinking."

The other is one of those endlessly fascinating things about Malta--snails. Now, you'd think there would not be many snails in such a dry place. Not so. There are lots and lots. Most have developed techniques to seal themselves up against the heat and dry. The while things on the plant are snails. Now, for all I know they may be dead, but it was fun to look at.
