I found the following book at a book sale. If you are looking for something to read and/or watch, like to read stories set in Maine ( I know, I know I have a thing for Maine), enjoy reading novels broken up into short stories or like (I absolutely adore) the actress Frances McDormand then pick up Elizabeth Strout’s book, Olive Kitteridge. The book is really meaty with characters going through an array of life experiences and at the heart of the story is Olive Kitteridge. She is a force, and when I found out Frances McDormand was playing her in the miniseries, I really couldn’t see anyone else playing this role. She didn’t disappoint (not that she ever has). So if you read/see it, I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I did.
One of the best things about visiting the south are these Banyan trees. Their trunks are so gnarled, their presence so majestic it makes me wonder, are we all like this tree? Our stories, our voices, our bodies, our memories so intertwined that ultimately we have become one.
I decided to go retro today and take pictures with this dinosaur of a camera. My Nikon N2020 film camera has lasted for over 20 years (it’s a workhorse) and has only had to be professionally fixed once.
I was quite amused at the perplexed expression on my youngest son’s face when after snapping his picture he realized he couldn’t “see” himself on the back of my camera.
Experimenting with in-camera double exposure.
