  3. Marie-Noëlle,
    merci beaucoup! :-)
    I went by train in the early morning and back late in the evening. It was a splendid autumn day, with warm temperatures and gorgeous sunshine. The picture was taken in the morning, when the sun was not out yet. The statue seemed to enjoy the mild morning so much, I had to capture her.

  5. Just read a book, "Why Mermaids Sing," that used a Donne poem in an interesting way.

  6. You always capture the effects of light and color so well in your photos! Beautiful!

  7. Beautiful Donne quotes. These latest images are all so stunning, Merisi. I have been so busy on the road I haven't been able to visit my favorite blogs the way I like to, but I'm going to go browse a while in yours--they always inspire. (Those heather pots all lined up in a recent post are gorgeous.)

  8. Merisi, on this cool, clear New York marathon Sunday morning, I have treated myself to a very leisurely viewing of your recent posts.

    Thank you for bringing such beauty in words and pictures to this new day. xo

  9. Lovely, all of it. Thank you!
