WORD UP - MR T SAYS "WEAR IT AND SHUT UP"













I have been a fan of "THE T" for many years. I have absolutely no idea why I am posting about him...well its not really all about Mr T...its about what he represents to me I guess...he is one tough nut to crack...resilience is certainly a trait that requires a bit of a thick skin and the ability to see through to the end of things...sometimes when things get that little bit too much for me...I think what would Mr T say or do...it makes me laugh...and then I get back on track...SO SUCKER...WEAR IT AND SHUT UP! Thanks to the fabulous blog www.artjewelleryforum.org for the image...not sure where they found it...

THE ALPINE REGION, VICTORIA



Taking some time out for me has proven to be the best thing I have done for myself in a very long time...here are some snaps I took on a recent trip to the Alpine region of Victoria...Visited Mt Buffalo, Mt Beauty, Bright, Ovens, Myrtleford, Beechworth...it was a joy to be out in the bush...my favourite place in the world...takin' snaps of trees, waterfalls & way too much fungi...

DAVID PLOWDEN
































































David Plowden of Winnetka, Illinois spent fifty years photographing America's landscape, both urban and rural. He has described himself as "an archeologist with a camera" who spent his life "one step ahead of the wrecking ball".... Some images from an extensive collection from the beinecke library .

I bought a pushy similar to the last one a bit ago, cleaned her up a bit the other day...will post a picture of her soon...
