futch, stupid blogger reads the pretty danish building sideways. oh well, here a pic of the old section of the town. i didn't see the 2 askew buildings til my next trip.
they didn't have trees or anything in the old section, but there were pitiful rose bushes everywhere.
and a nice sunset. there was a ill by benedicte's house that you could see water looking east and looking west.

i did a lot of travel in 1998. went to mahattan, denmark and boulder. next photo series-NY!

and before i forget


4th day, 8th tale.

-there are some persons who think they know more than other people, and in fact know less. They oppose their opinions not only to the advice of other men but even to the nature of things; and through their presumptuousness great evils have occurred, but NEVER any good.


after annish, i was confidant enough that i could do wrinkles, so, i picked an image of an indian that i wanted to do. Geronimo 1904(i think-squish on the date).after he was captured and was a fixture of the press and wild west shows, he had a penchant for the funniest hats, but as he was a medicine man and not a chief, they seem appropriate. i did another watercolor of geronimo with a different hat that i would also like to paint in oil. love his headgear.

as i said, there were lots of glass artists in ebeltoft and they also had a glass art museum as well.when i was there, there was an exhibit by this swedish glass artist(i think it was sweden). they had taken an old factory and he had put in an installation of his work. he also had these little glass faces' for sale. i have one on my wall. well, i took some pictyres of his fish in streams of light lines. if i remember they wer moving to be more waterlike. i think my pic turned out damned good. probably 1/60 or 1/32 speed. i can do 1/15 pretty well. wait til i post my empire state building pics.


not that great, but the 2nd sale i have done of sisters who traveled ALOT. these gals had some good antiques, but none of my bent. did much better at the other one. the $3 bag was mostly for ebay. but it is fun to watch when they pull out the bags. everybody grabbing stuff. one or both of the sisters were chiropractors and they must have gone to a chiropractor convention in yugoslavia. i got a cool carved wood envelope opener made in yugoslavia. that is my favorite thing from there. love it!

this is a catalpa tree i discovered while looking for an estate sale i never found. horrid directions and even the map didn't help.

and while i am here

i put out some corn meal mush that was sticking to the pan. soak in water and it comes off. chippies like it(i am running low on seeds). well, the baby birds are starting to fly, but this one baby would hover over the grass, not sure. MOMEE how do i land on that! bird so wanted some yellow stuff, but never able to land his stupid feathered but on the grass. quite funny.

dang. i save the tree pic not sideways. damned blogger. no matter what, reads it sideways.
