if you're very quiet

you can hear the murmur of stories
wandering aimlessly in the heat on a listless afternoon

Yup! I can hear them Brattcat, perfect in monochrome.

And what intriguing stories they could be. I like your selection of detail on this house with a carpenter gothic kinda look. Wonderful imagination :^)

... or maybe even someone snoring in the distance. I like your angle here. I thought gothic too.

Stories, like memories and secrets, like to play and run in old patient stairs..

And you are quiet and you hear them . . . fortunately for us.

I think the steps are whispering, "Paint me."

If these walls could talk.....

The b/w sets the mood and the under-stair perspective lends the mystery... love it

And when the whispers have died down you can hear the creaking of the steps as the local ghost ascends them...

I don't think these stairs were made by a carpenter. Maybe an artist.

Sweet whispers---yes I can hear them also.

Love the red wagon---a very nice sight.

Love all your pics and the words that go with them. MB

This summer's heat could make you delirious, summoning tales from the depths of your memory.

What a beautiful photo.

Really nice, brattcat. This doesn't feel very Vermont-y to me, but I know Brattleboro has some high Victorian houses with lots of gingerbread, so that must be where you found this one.

Wonderfully composed shot.

Oh, I can hear them-- and smell the tang of iced tea, too.
