LAST ISSUE'S IMAGE (ISSUE
a segment of the top side of one of the two fancy
umbrellas, with which a couple of Mummers, and Philadelphians,
strutted during the show on Sunday (as mentioned
in Issue 30).
LAST ISSUE'S IMAGERY -
When I saw these umbrellas, I was immediately drawn
to the colors and textures and the, oh-so-detailed,
workmanship. I'm thinking that there is also something
in the Mandala-like aspect of them that gets my
The umbrellas seemed to be a "look, don't touch"
experience and I'm realizing, as I write, my way
of "touching" is to use the camera lens.

on Mary's question that you'd like to share?

AN ANNOUNCEMENT -
I have had some inquiries on the possibility
of purchasing prints of some of the PICTURE TO PONDER
photos. In addition to the prints I do on my own
printer, I decided to see what two of the most popular
images would look like on some of the products available
in my NATURE ART/CAFE SHOPS.
Thus I have happily opened up a new
section for PICTURE TO PONDER merchandise. Please
e-mail me if there are any other images or products
you would like to see here or if you have any questions
