The Dolls - DeCordova Museum, Lincoln, MA

I like how this turned out. It looks contrived, but this image was shot as found, a child's dolls thrown haphazardly on the grounds of the sculpture park at the DeCordova. Should I crop out (or photoshop out) the shadow on the bottom left, or leave it?

Dear Lorie,

I have recently set up a blog without ever having read another blog. I suspect that I am a bit long-winded for the medium, but after setting up my blog, I thought I would spend a couple of days trolling on blogger to see what else is out there. Mostly an awful lot of bumpf.

But, I just wanted to let you know that not only did I find your blog, but I found it to be fantastic. So fantastic that when I promptly navigated away from it by accident, I had to spend ages trying to find it again, serendipitously, as I eventually did.

Many of your images are really beautiful. You have a wonderful eye for lines, structure, composition and "found visual" art.

I admit I am a bit fearful of putting up pieces of my own art or photographs on the web because I fear putting them into the public domain (but then I am a lawyer who has significant experience with intellectual theft scenarios and I now live in HK).

Anyways, your posts are elegant, gracious, and visually arresting.

Your text is insightful or wry or whimsical while engaging.

Thank you for sharing them and I am delighted to have stumbled across them.

I doubt that I can concatenate my communication to the level that you do, but I am seriously considering posting more private pictures on my blog on blogger.

I am also starting up another blog which is intended to be a virtual salon of ideas because, being a periapatetic expatriate, I frequently find myself displaced from friends. I haven't posted the first item for discussion yet, although I likely will soon, but given your comments on your own blog, I would be delighted if you would consider visiting and giving your view point from time to time if you so chose.

From your posts you come across as interesting, educated, creative, and thoughtful. I would be delighted if you would check out my virtual salon once or twice. (This, my second blog is located on word press at :))

There, see, I really am bad at this modern medium.

My friends all laugh at me because I refuse to misspell when texting on my cell phone.

Best wishes, and thanks again for sharing yourself on the web.
