The Road Not Taken
~Robert Frost

TWO roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Tin Types

Here’s a super rad video from PetaPixel about how tin types were/are made. Watch it. It rocks. And I totally want to do this some day…..


Also, here’s a tin type I have in my collection….. It’s labeled on the back…. “Tallest Girl – Mother’s Sister Cora. Next tallest – Anna. Short one – Mother H.”  So, that would make the “short one” my great grandmother or great great grandmother….  I just can’t remember which one had a sister named Cora.

I love PetaPixel. They have some of the most fabulous stories and ideas. I happened upon this video today….  “A Brief Tour of the Eastman House’s Vintage Camera Warehouse” although I think a more to the point title would have been “camera porn for photo geeks” but oh well. The video is a behind the scenes to this book, which I want. A lot.

rainbows & waterfalls

Mark, Jes and I went to the Wisconsin side of Interstate Park yesterday. Sunday night, on my way over to their house, I saw a rainbow. Yesterday, we hiked around, saw a couple waterfalls, stopped at a pumpkin patch and saw another rainbow on our way home. Quite the lovely 24 hours for me.
