At long last: That photo shows the most accurate color, but this isn’t bad. And I do like the lighting in this third shot. The black tulips are lovely but hard to photograph well. For images, the white tulips stole the show. I didn’t do a whole lot this weekend. The cold I’d been fighting […]

Back. Exhausted.

Got home at 3:30 this morning, after an airline incident involving “precautionary fire trucks”. All was fine – that announcement from the pilot was the scariest part of the whole thing. The extra five hours was the worst part – that made the whole trip (bus, train, plane) a 24-hour marathon. It will take a […]

Through their powers, I’ve learned more about the origins of these mysterious creatures, and am sharing my new insights with you all.

Poppets go shopping
