October 2021

Before this October rolls by too fast as months do, here is last year’s in twenty images for my Calendar series. First, a paragraph of apologies.

Day Seven & Thursday Doors 7/4/22: Villa di Radi 2.

This is the last door post from the open-door day last May when I visited three properties south of Siena in Tuscany. But first, two images and a poem.

Lens-Artists PC: London calling

I choose a place that many of you know and show it through my first digital camera’s eye as seen in 2010 because a Londoner said it was always interesting to see your home city through the eyes of a visitor. It was Sarah, and she picked some extraordinary architecture from North Korea for thisContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: London calling”
