If you read my other blog, Long Hollow,
you know I've been spending a lot of time with my parents in Houston.
Daddy just had carotid artery surgery and Mama needs an extra hand.
In the past, I took dozens of photos here of squirrels and birds.
Their house was marked as a fur and feather waystation.
Then this pretty little girl showed up.
She has the yard all to herself now.
I snapped this through the door several days ago, the only time I've picked up my camera here.
Thanks to friends and family who realize it's a blessing to help my parents, rather than a burden or leisurely hobby, I was able to run home for two days.
Saturday morning I went for a walk and soaked in the autumn beauty, stillness, and peace of home - my Hollow.
(Caregivers need that - if you know one, step in. Give them a chance to refocus and breathe!)
I picked up my zoom lens Saturday and it seems to back to its old self.
I snapped the ones below from the storefront before leaving, just to make sure.
I spent several hours yesterday at a great photo gig, set up by a friend for me at her company picnic.
I think I got some good ones, although I can't share them here yet.
Thank you again, Darla!
Do you remember my post on the Alien House in Pensacola Beach?
The current expert on them, Simon Robson, sent me an email yesterday letting me know he used my photos (with attributes and links) on his site devoted to it HERE.
If you have time, explore Simon's website - he has lots of information and photos of the Futuro Homes and other strange buildings.
