Outside My Window…
I may as well have a Widow’s Walk on my roof,
as in the days when wives stood watch
waiting for their husbands to arrive safely
from a journey at sea.
Our youngest daughter is driving home today
from Dallas (minimum 8 hours).
And so traveling mercies are on my mind.
Lately, I have been reading….
books about photography that were collecting dust
on my bookshelves.
I am waiting for the exposure triangle of aperture,
