It’s a small world and we share it with small creatures. Take great care!

The Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge has come to an end, and so the final post is All-Time Favourite!
So I chose a photo that I didn’t seek out. It was really early in the morning on Boxing Day. The house was still and the room was just starting to lighten. I had spent a restless night on the couch at my parents’ home, and I was about to roll over when the moon caught my eye. I was transfixed.

When the world seems to shine like you’ve had too much wine

Were I called on to define, very briefly, the term Art, I should call it ‘the reproduction of what the Senses perceive in Nature through the veil of the soul.’ The mere imitation, however accurate, of what is in Nature, entitles no man to the sacred name of ‘Artist.’ Edgar Allan Poe

When I was younger, I used to drive up to a bunch of turkeys, roll down the window and say something. They’d all gobble back at once. – Levon Helm
I know there are plenty of “turkeys” in the city, and were I to roll down my window to “gobble at them”, they’d gobble back…in quite colourful language. I should be accustomed to that. What I’m not accustomed to literally seeing turkeys in the city!
Thanksgiving tip: Don’t let a Jedi carve the turkey.
Happy Star Wars Day!

If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant. – Anne Bradstreet
Tulips are one of the first flowers to start blooming in my garden in the Spring, but I still have several weeks to wait. This weekend, we were hit with an ice storm, but thanks to a friend, we still had a little Spring inside!

This Japanese Chikaramachi tea cup belonged to my Grandmother.
Chikaramachi has been part of Noritake’s history since 1896, but early records were destroyed in the home office after a bombing attack on March 19, 1945. The names, Chikaramachi and shumokucho came from the intersection of 5 buildings built by the Morimura brothers, the co-founders of what became Noritake, in 1896.
The first Chikaramachi back stamp was registered in 1912. This tea cup has the second series of backstamp (1928), a crown within a laurel wreath, in green.
The quality of the porcelain of many Chikaramachi pieces can have imperfections, rough edges, and inconsistent brushwork. All production and exports ceased in 1942.

Frequently on family outings, Dad & I will take photos of the same things, but different angles (usually his are better)! Sometimes I just focus on Dad!
I like taking photos of photographers in action, not just to see what the photograph is about, but to see the process and thought behind it. I’m usually too shy to take photos of a stranger or in a crowd, but family is fair game!
