Where I’m Calling From





A few shots from around and about the English grounds. 


*Small Measure: Find beauty where you are. It’s everywhere, no matter where you’re calling from (this post’s title is based on a Raymond Carver short story as well as a collection of short stories by the same name; R.C. is an old favorite, a sort of Tom Waits literary kin).

    Makes me miss those lush mountains. Soul green… The photos on your blog are always startlingly beautiful. You have a wonderful eye for simple but sense-evoking compositions.
