Plateau Swirl

Central Oregon is a magical place, just around the corner from a forest over 3000 feet above sea level, you turn a corner and come upon these painted hills. www.sassamatt.com

Island Bound

Island Bound: It is that time of year again when we find ourselves leaning on the railing of the many ferries that move between the islands.

Seeding the Wind II

This series of photos captures flowers as they transition from bud to bloom to death. 
Bouquets of flowers have a special symbolism in most cultures. Flowers mark every kind of occasion and are always given in a spirit of goodwill even when they're meant as condolences. As well, the deliberate selection, intentional arrangement, and desire to create beauty and symmetry as a gift, underscore the best in humankind. The symbolism of flowers in combination with their fleeting beauty is a poignant reminder of our own beauty and frailty.

Up on the Roof: Bernard Leach and The Equestrian Ridge Tile Tradition

New Book Now Available
This is an in-depth look at traditional equestrian clay ridge tiles that from the middle ages used to adorn rooflines in England and Northern Europe. The practice had died out by the early 1800s, and the last remnants are found only in museums in the West Country. Up on the Roof recounts how, Bernard Leach and members of the Old Cornwall Society, reintroduced the tradition during the first half of the 20th-century. Their tiles, some of which are still on roofs in St. Ives, have received little attention for the last eighty years, and once again the tradition was in danger of being lost.
