such a tiny detail

one sparkling ball, the size of a grapefruit, turns an ordinary house
into a place of wonder.

there are full animals and there are stuffed animals

and then there is nicole.
never tell an old cat where to sleep.

leaf lace

woven by a master artist

(a dessicated leaf casts a lacey shadow on western avenue)

sometimes sunlight

and
pendulous raindrops
create such ephemeral constellations

look how polished

the administration department's entry was.
my apologies for the quality of these images.
the ailing camera continues to cause problems.

how sweet would it be
to be cared for
here...

this jaunty gent

looked too cool to mingle
but look what happened when he met
yesterday's pup.

prickly little afternoon

all thorny trees and spires

sunlight reaches through the ether

to stroke the face of this mantlepiece

through the stiff stubble of december

sheep and chickens
rizzle and scratch,
trying to fill their winter-hungry stomachs.

do you think you would like

growing christmas trees for a living?

the sun danced with wild abandon

winking at itself
in a thousand planes
of dimpled glass

happy birthday, dear helaine,

this time of year

we become
mere
shadows
of ourselves

the stuff of dreams

these exquisite creatures
are the handiwork of supremely talented doll-maker
anna abigail brahms

(thank you all for your illuminating camera advice.
i'll let you know when i make up my mind
and make room in my budget.)

technical help please...but not too technical

sometimes my camera focuses beautifully
but more and more often it won't.
is it time for a new camera?

i've been using a sony cybershot dsc h20.
it's given me great zoom, great macro, great clarity, & it's not too heavy or bulky.
suggestions for a replacement/upgrade?

the estey organ works

once hummed on estey street
on a hill above downtown brattleboro
