"Up stairs and down stairs in his night-gown" (which, I think, is nightgown + nightcap). 'Willie was just here.'

This is two images combined in PS: the nightcap and lantern taken on outside stairs (and straightened in LR) and the moon/sky/trees image taken later in the day.

Having had conversations with string players about the best type of vehicle to own to support their music, when I saw this star in the spotlight, I was sure I knew what it meant. But then, I thought, this van may just as easily belong to an angler with a taste for a certain type of fish.

I've had this little guy for years - sitting on the front steps of my building in La Veta. This week, when I saw him, I realised he would be good for this topic and also it was time to bring him home to brighten my garden. I stewed on a lot of various sign messages and almost went with... "Who Cut the Cheese?" You can thank me later. Smile.

"The dog's spread out on the floor."

No apologies here for using my iPhone. There is magical light that comes from the sidelights of my front door. I was heading to the kitchen to make breakfast, iPhone in hand, and the light with the bits of rainbow and their calm demeanor would have been gone if I had not had that camera handy. I had to play sly to make sure they wouldn't get up and come to me - so I feel it was a score. I like the strong oblique line and tried to get a point of view that was dramatic - again, without them moving. This is Barley... and Rosie. Rosie has been under the weather with a severe stomach situation that I hope is on the mend. These two, plus Cordelia, have been my salvation and provided my companionship during the lockdown and since.
