  1. I love your sepia images, and I imagine that if this were in full color, it could be a great model for Zuber wallpaper. In fact, I'd love to see this enlarged to wall size just as it is. ... Mark

  3. Practically my backyard. Not much has really changed, except sadly there is no longer a hunt. Odd thing is the dog is allergic to bracken so certain areas are a no go in summer.
