You have a deinite eye for photography--elusive, mysterious, different perspectives. I am enjoying your pics.

I am glad other people go to Paris and read Philip Roth!!

Beautiful pictures!

Missedcconceptions: Good eye on the book title. Though that's L reading it, not me. I just finished In the Heart of the Sea, a stirring tale of early 19th century whaling, shipwreck, and cannibalism.

The second picture is beautiful. I would hang that in my library.

When I look at the shots you take (like these ones here), I can see a wall filled with them. But they are butted up next to each other--kind of like a collage (i.e. no negative space between the frames). Wish I could draw it here, but hopefully that explains it. I think it would make a really cool visual landscape (all the somewhat abstract close ups), joined together. Anyhow, I am trying to do something somewhat like that (of course, quite different subject matter), but I am inspired by your close ups!

you have such an eye... that you can take a creamer and a coke bottle and make it nice to look at

Meg: I can imagine what you're talking about. Funny, that never would have occurred to me since I have a kind of paranoia about having too many *things* on the wall. But maybe you're right and it would work....

Thanks everyone for the compliments on my photos. I love taking photos and I work hard to get just the right shot, but once I'm done it's a little frustrating because there doesn't seem to be anything to do with them, if you know what I mean.
