Boot Clappers!

 From the Yale University Collection of Musical Instruments we will look at some of the extraordinary bells from the Robyna Nelson Ketchum collection that the museum acquired in 1975.  This little one was so cute.  The bell collection had every kind of bell imaginable, cow bells, temple bells, little ones, big ones with beautiful sounds.

Friday at the Feeder

 Crazy nesting place!
Really zoomed in photo of Robin.  I think this is interesting though, sort of a shot from under the bill.

Outdoor still life

This little still life waiting to be photographed was on the grounds of the park by the Lockwood Matthews Mansion, I believe it was Matthews Park.  Sort of looks like a Keith Haring knock off.

Lockwood-Matthews Mansion

This is the Lockwood-Matthews Mansion located in South Norwalk, CT.  For those of you who are old enough to have watched the 1966-1971 tv series 'Dark Shadows' you might recognize this.  It was used in some of the outdoor scenes.  The mansion was quiet for many years and in disarray but has since been restored.  I went to an art opening there a couple of weeks ago.

Gone and Forgotten

A couple of weeks ago I visited this cemetery in Norwalk, CT.  It was rather curious in that one part of it was taken care fairly well and the other part was all but forgotten.
 Graves unkempt
 A resting place for the living and the dead.


Shame on you.
