Surprise Microburst

WWC Theme: Surprise

It certainly took us by surprise just a few weeks ago.  A sudden burst of energy struck one small portion of our yard and demolished a few trees.  We were very lucky that the trees all just missed falling on our house.  A few months before we had taken down a big Logenberry tree that I was worried would come through our house and I’m so glad we had done that.  It could have been disastrous!

Dense With History

WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: Dense

Unable to sustain funding, sadly, The American Textile Museum in Lowell has closed its doors. The bulk of their collections are transerred to Cornell University in Ithica, NY. Anyone travelling that way should think about a visit there.  As a leading academic research library, they have an extensive collection of historical textile documents, photos, and ephemera.

I was lucky enough to have visited the Textile Museum while it was still open in 2014. So dense with history,  I thought this was a great opportunity to share some of my photos of it.
