An Elementary Observation

Happy Birthday to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, who was born on this date in 1859.

Doyle, of course, created the detective Sherlock Holmes. Holmes, while fictional, is still assumed by some people to be a real historical figure--perhaps this can be attributed to Doyle's gift for characterization.

Happy Birthday, Sir Conan-Doyle!

Nice to know that the 'father' of Sherlock Holmes has his birthday today. He was my favorite detective. Now you have so many others. But he was one of the first I guess, but you will know that better.

I still have my blogsite. Doing even a study on fotography now and it gives me a lot of pleasure.
Hope to hear from you some time.
