The Dutchess County Fair....and memories of my own childhood.


Isn't this just the sweetest scene?
If you look closely, there are three children napping among these cows, tucked in between their warm, smooth, solid haunches. What a lovely way to experience childhood, don't you think?


I don't approve of elephants in captivity. It makes me sad. But their beauty always astonishes, and I can never resist capturing the image.

Liza, yes, in Rhinebeck. Do you know the area?

Mlle - I'd love a swiss cow as well, please. One willing to nap with me ;)

You've gotta love the late-summer county fair season.
