My Photo


  • [es-pree de less-ka/-iay] (idiom) A witty remark that occurs to you too late, literally on the way down the stairs. The Oxford Dictionary of Quotations defines esprit de l'escalier as, "An untranslatable phrase, the meaning of which is that one only thinks on one's way downstairs of the smart retort one might have made in the drawing room."

Look at all of those hummingbirds! My mother's feeders get action like that. I'm lucky if I have two.

Lovely photos.

Beauty shots, Claire! I love all of them -- especially the one of the little girl with the wet hair. That would look gorgeous enlarged and framed. Maybe a Christmas gift?

Don't you love how I give you ideas to do even *more* stuff? Like you don't do enough already?


Thanks ladies. :) I have three rolls of film of kids.

I love that polaroid of the little girl, too. She literally dunked her head and came up to me dripping, demanding her photo taken. She was contrary and willful and quite hilarious. Except when she tried to follow me in the bathroom.

Love the perspective on these pics--those tall trees are really neat!
