Around My World

Aside from an accidental attempted suicide last night (will explain in a bit) I can see it’s gonna take me a while to get quilts made. I decided to start with a small throw for the back seat of our car – something to cover our cameras when we go in to grab a bite, etc. Good thing.

Cycles of History

This is a photo-heavy entry. I’ve posted a few pictures here and there, but continue to post more here than anywhere else. The majority of these are monochrome/sepia edits. It’s my favorite photo treatment by far, and one where I feel I do it justice. All these were taken over the weekend. This small tank was elevated above the floor of the small valley where it sat.
