Retrospective thirty-two (October 2014)

Given the way in which blogs are presented, I am convinced that posts which reside more than a scroll or two behind the most recent are doomed to languish and be forgotten. Because I believe there is value in looking at contributions from days, weeks, and even months ago, I present a gallery of images from October of 2014. Hovering an image will reveal its title. Clicking one will take you to a carousel view and you can either move through the collection or click the links to read each post in its original form. This is the thirty-second in my series of retrospectives. If you missed any of the others, you can find them all by clicking Retrospective in the tag cloud in the sidebar.

8 thoughts on “Retrospective thirty-two (October 2014)

  1. Just looked at your December 2014 retrospective. Compare it to this batch and there’s so much more color and diversity here! The thermometer is a favorite as are the panes and all of the animal portraits!

  2. So many delights here: particularly the colored panes, which remind me of our very old-fashioned practice of making stained glass windows for Christmas by using brightly colored cellophane. The “punkin chunkin'” made me laugh. It reminds me of a well-known fruitcake toss in Colorado.

    But my favorite is that dignified gray goose. It’s a lovely portrait, and it also reminds me of a song my mother’s dad used to sing to me: “Go Tell Aunt Rodie.” It’s a bit of a downer, given that the rest of that line is, “the old gray goose is dead,” but we used to listen to the accounts of the demise with squeals of laughter. If you don’t know the song, you can hear it here.

    • More treats. Joanna and I both knew little bits of Aunt Rodie and the Pickards did a good job with it. Thanks also for taking the time to reminisce. I could hear the laughter … across the years … loud and clear. D

    • Thanks Seonaid. The geese did not make the move to Vermont with us. We miss the animals … and cannot say the same thing about their mess, however. Thanks for checking in.

  3. The colors and composition of the collection are pleasing and it occurs to me that each of these retrospectives has been full of visual surprise. It has been a pleasure to read and view your work.
