Something Different

Tim and I just returned from 10 days on the coast of Oregon + Redwood National Park + Crater Lake.  For something just a little different than my regular restoration posts, here's a link to some of our pictures.  I will be writing about an experiment I'm conducting regarding vacation pictures.  First installment should be available later tomorrow.  See you then :-)

Soulful Eyes

Some stories are happy.  Some are sad.   Some are silly.  Some  are completely make-believe.  And unfortunately, sometimes, the stories are nothing short of tragic.  So it is with this young boy with the deep, soulful eyes.

As I worked to uncover and brighten his young face, I kept wanting to rescue him.  To make it better.

Home on the Range

I wanted to be a cowgirl.  You already knew that.  But my time as a cowgirl was, in reality, just dressing like a cowgirl.  It was make believe.

You see, I lived in town.  Even though Granddaddy bought a couple of old horses and a pony for the grandchildren to ride, there weren't any bandits or stagecoaches or herds of cattle to drive across the range.  We had no tumblin' tumbleweed.  We weren't cowpokes.  We were just kids.  

Not so for this young boy....

In the Meantime...

I am working.  Really I am.  It's just that the projects I'm currently working on are all to be given as surprise gifts.  So I can't post them. Yet.

One post will be entitled, "Home On the Range".  Another will be  "Just a Little Bit".  A third project remains unnamed, but the story behind the image is one of the most touching I've heard.

In the meantime.....
