holiday greetings…

We went to a nursery the other day, to try to find some live plants to replace the more bedraggled ruins in the pots by the front door — and we found a Henry Lauder’s Walkingstick in a pot – I couldn’t resist – I haven’t had a Christmas tree in years, and I fell in love with its twisted branches.

I’m hoping I can plant it and have it to take pictures in for years – but this year anyway – I got some pictures of Birdie in its branches. this year, Christmas is about remembering childhood and magic and making wishes….

fooling around…

I always wanted to be a painter, but I don’t have the fine motor skills to make the kinds of pictures I see in my head.

but using my camera, and playing with photoshop – i can have some fun and come up with some images i enjoy…
these are pretty simple – I just have to learn how to make them more complex … (but i really need to get back to squishing clay!)

What do you fear my lady?
