courage



"Everyday courage has few witnesses. But yours is no less noble because no drum beats for you and no crowds shout your name."
--Robert Louis Stevenson

This makes me think of the folk song "One Misty, Moisty Morning when Cloudy was the Weather..." Do you know that one? Gorgeous photo!

This photo looks just like an old one (yes, I know you did that on purpose), that I sat there staring at it, wondering why it was taken 100 years ago, and trying to make up a story. Did not work. I will have to refer it to my DD...

margie said...

your images are simply breathtaking. what beautiful work.

Judy said...

I told you I would get my daughter to write a story for this photo - it is not what I had thought of, but if you don't laugh, you are made of sterner stuff than I am - "I think the real reason is that it has some kind of filter over the image, to make it look distressed. The more interesting explanation is that the blogger is clearly a time traveler. She went back a hundred years, took the picture, and put it away for safe keeping to be recovered when she returned to our time. Of course, if you ask she will tell you it's a filter. She has to keep her time traveling powers a secret, in order to protect herself from the massive government conspiracies that would like nothing better than to wreak havoc on the time stream. That's also why she can't post the awesome pictures she took the other day of a t-rex."

Ha! I love it, Judy! Imagine all the wonderful antiques I could collect if I were really a time traveller... :)
