She Kept A Parrot

This is the original shot through the shower wall. This is an altered version. This is something I’ve meant to do for a long time.  I never remember to do it.  This morning, I did.  Now, don’t tell me not to take my Nikon D300 wearing one of her good Nikkor lenses (With VR, of course)  into the shower.  It wouldn’t do you any good.   Some photography site somewhere told me… Read More

For the first time,  I had to move some stuff to get the photograph of some of my favorite Mud Men.  There were footed china waste bowls and a starfish in front of these guys.  I don’t like set up photographs, but this one is…kind of.   To dispense with the “Teapot Period” pots, I’ll identify these and get on with my story about the Mud Men.  These are Royal Copenhagen porcelain… Read More

Lisa was always smiling. She seemed to be the “mother” of the group although she was about the same age as the others.

Antique English Garden Statue This very worn antique concrete whippet is one of a pair who guard the entrance at the stone path to my back door.  His features were slowly worn away by the harsh winters of England to expose the aggregate stones used in the cement mixture from which he was cast.   Many years of exposure to the elements would be required to obliterate the distinctive features of a whippet.  Only he knows… Read More
