Re: Inspirations

The summer school holidays were dragging on. I was about 6. My father asked me why I was grumpy and I said, "I'm bored!" There came pivotal parental advicee: "If the world is boring you, take more interest in it." The next Christmas Santa brought me my wished-for Box Brownie and ...

Re: Ready, Willling And Able

Re: Havoc And Regeneration

Thanks Mick. If the fires gave thinned out the canopy and charred the weakened trunks that's what I am there to document. Part of that, If it's aesthetically attractive, might prove to be fruit for the sideboard.
