Woodland Butterfly Sprite

Saturday, October 24, 2009


M. G. and V.....i have discovered in Gammyhood that it is impossible to focus even a point and shoot while acting like the blithering idiot that smiling tiny people can turn one ( this one for sure! ) into.

Hello Chiswick

Big red buses,"zebra " crossing, jet lag and babies. For a few days it was all a blur, but on day five she woke up - albeit very late in the morning having survived the until 3 am ruckus of Youth across the hall - had her in room tea ( tea she brought from home ...not exactly coals to Newcastle but definitely in the environ), opened the shutters to see rain and thought: of course! I am in London. I am here to care for beautiful babies. I am here to blog about said babies and so I shall. Blog posts and beautiful babies to follow very soon.

Lunch At A 16

OF COURSE, when is SF with El Foodie the eats will be great. Lunch today at A16, named for the bus stop in front but the mundane stops at the door. Everything is prepared behind the bar including the butchering of this pig. The menu is authentic southern Italian and that sometimes translates to non Europeans like me as exotic and needing explanation. Explanation however really isnt necessary because every single time, at least in my experience, what ever is ordered is delicious and beautiful to boot.

There is a little self portrait in the exterior A16 shot above. it was not intended!

Making Waves in San Francisco

Here in SF just in time for a "really big" storm.

On The Road Again

Headed tomorrow for London via a 6 day stop in SF. Please check in from time to time as I intend to post along the way. Back here right before Thanksgiving and, if today and both the past and upcoming weeks are any indication, Jackson will be buried in snow by then.

JH Land Trust Photography Project

Saving the land.

This farmer whose land has been in the family for generations, in fact, homesteaded early on in the history of the area is deeply concerned for the future of farms like his.

HIs farm is situated in one of the most beautiful spots you can imagine, under the Tetons on the western side. It is also surrounded by equally beautiful land that has been bought up and plaited. When the economy returns these field that go as far as the eye can see will be houses as far as the eye can see.

Once an agricultural eden a great portion of this land is in a sense already " gone".

The farmer approached JH Land Trust for help in saving the land for agricultural use and for at least one farmer of the future, one of his sons.

I, like so many, have long thought JHLT the most valuable agency in the valley. Shooting these 4 ranches, the 1 farm, has been an education. I have learned about the land and the people maintaining it and, most importantly, about what an agency of dedicated people can do to save it for ALL of us.

JH Land Trust Project

The property below and above, not yet in easement but in dialog is different in that it, like Ring Lake, is not a working ranch but rather one of historical value. The history is not only in the grouping of log cabins. It is also in the shared history of the family. Both great and funny memories of summers spent as children on the ranch enhance the continued summer experience of the owners.

There is a full time ranch manager who keeps things going when the family is not present but, in reality, everyone pitches in when needed to keep things up.

The family experience, the history of these buildings and even the shared maintenance fairly sing with good times.
