Today was one of those days. I actually got caught out without my iPhone! Gasp! Remember that old Chase Jarvis saying? The best camera is the camera you have with you.
Well, I had my iPad Air wth me. So I used it. So glad I did.
We had lunch with Thea's sister, Alicia, on Tuesday, and after lunch we visited a local second hand shop.
I sat down to try out an interesting chair, and when I looked to my right, there was a small chest, a medicine cabinet, maybe, with a beveled glass mirror in the door.
And there I was, staring back at myself.
My iPhone was in my shirt pocket, of course, so out it came and there I was and here I am in an almost candid sort of street photography style self portrait.
This little Madonna and Child has been in our collection for nearly thirty years. I have photographed it many times, never successfully. Even when I shot it as reference for a painting, it always fell short.
As I was getting out of bed this morning, this was the first thing ny eyes fell upon. I reached for my iPhone and took this picture, which, at long last, captured the feelings I have for this unusual treasure.

While photographing this old truck covered with snow, I saw something move in the shadows beneath it. Soon, this little fellow peeked out, a tiny kitten, perfectly framed by the old truck.
You never know what you might find if you keep your eyes and your mind open when out photographing. I certainly got lucky on this day.

OK, I promised I would start today telling you about the projects I've been working on lately. All I can tell you right now is that I wrapped one of them up late last night. I can't spill the beans just yet, as I still have a bit of tidying up to do. But…
Tomorrow, I will give you a sneak peek!
