my tiny urban garden

Cornwall deck in the Sunday morning sun

Another early July weekend in Cornwall with Liz and Ken. And the luck of the weather. It broke, and we are taking in the slant of Sunday morning sun on the old deck. The heavy contrast of sun and shade made my reach for my Nikon.

Dublin day 2 (5-21-2017)

Today we saw Beckett’s telephone at the Irish Writers Museum and encountered Joyce in St. Stephens Green.
