Paul McCartney: Eyes of the Storm

This exhibit is being shown at my local museum. Nearly 1000 photos taken by McCartney from 1963-1964 were rediscovered in his archive and are now being shown on tour in several museums. He was just an amateur photographer taking pictures as the Beatles were on tour in Liverpool, London, and the U.S. Here are some shots from the exhibit. The excitement around them was incredible!

Happier Cactus

My old cactus now has branches! It's nice to be surprised. It was a gift from a friend at least 15 years ago. Maybe I should let it go outside now and then! It has been in a window.

Melt Down

In some states in the U.S. climate change has taken a toll on the snowshoe hare. The lack of snow and ground cover makes them well seen when their coat is white in the winter. In the summer they have brown coats.

Elizabeth River Ferry Solarplate Etching

This year the paddle-wheel ferry celebrated 40 years on the water. There are actually three ferries operating on the river between Norfolk and Portsmouth, Virginia. Of course, before the ferries and for hundreds of years, there were all types of other vessels taking people from one side to the other. It was a challenge drawing that paddlewheel and all of those railings. I really like taking the ferry when I get a chance. More relaxing than dealing with tunnel traffic!

American Box Turtle

 I love to see turtles but I don't see them very often. This is an American Box Turtle that was crossing my yard a few days ago. I read that they can live to be 100 years old! Usually it's 25-30 years but that's pretty impressive too. I once saw a snapping turtle in the same place, much bigger and a little scarier. Apparently that one can really bite!
