words that travel


I'd like to show you what a nice letter I got from Caddi, the winner of my last giveaway.

It really inspires me to send more handwritten letters this year. There's something very touching and gift-like about receiving an envelopeful of words in the post, that just pour out into the present time upon opening the letter. Thank you Caddi, I loved your letter and I've saved the envelope to display it where I can see it.

PS. I'm looking forward to seeing the grey toned backgrounds brightening and the grainy images clearing up as we are heading slowly out of winter! In the meantime, I'm trying to view the progression of my less than brilliant images (which are taken at the best daylight conditions I could muster indoors) as a way of documenting winter turning into spring...

  3. I love it when people put an effort into making the envelope pretty. It is superfluous and yet so pleasurable!

    I am having the same problem with photographs - I like your attitude to this!
