The eyes have it...

Eye x-ray

Had my annual check up with my optician in Bridge-of-Allan and she very kindly let me photograph the monitor with my eye x-ray.

Not for the first time have I been struck by the similarity between the eyes and the planets.

But maybe I should not be surprised. Afer all we are all stardust.

The Body Snatchers- Callander

This is the six sided watchtower in Callander built during the late 18th century to guard against the body snatchers. There werent enough legal bodies for medical research and there was a flourishing business in Edinburgh led by Burke and Hare to dig up freshly buried bodies for research. Anxious relatives had this watchtower built and it was used to guard the graveyard.
