After coddling my "wildflower meadow" for several years I'm finally getting some results. This Queen Anne's Lace flower illustrates "2 Things, alfresco".


This old tree was shot from the base to illustrate this weeks 2 Things topic "foreshorten".

This box of powder sits on my bedside table and I love the scent it gives at night while I am reading.


Just a pile of rocks I picked out of the driveway. I am late with my contribution such as it is. I was going for something that would concentrate on the shapes.

I dedicate this post to the dog I featured in a previous post and to all mistreated animals everywhere.

I want to share this joyous letter and news from Wayne Purcell, President and CEO of The Humane Society of The United States:

Dear Bobbie,

I wanted to be the first to share with you some fantastic news. Today President Bush signed the Animal Fighting Prohibition Enforcement Act into law. This is the culmination of an almost six-year campaign by The Humane Society of the United States and our allies to enact meaningful federal penalties for animal fighting.

The law takes effect immediately. It provides felony penalties for interstate commerce, import and export related to animal fighting activities, including commerce in cockfighting weapons. It will make it much harder for criminals who engage in dogfighting and cockfighting to continue their operations. Each violation of the federal law may bring up to three years in jail and up to a $250,000 fine for perpetrators.

We are fortunate to have had steadfast Congressional leadership on this issue. But this campaign would not have been a success without your tireless efforts. Thank you again to each of you who sent emails, made phone calls, wrote letters and visited your federal legislators on Capitol Hill and in their home districts.

This victory reminds us to never to give up, and that there are rewards for compassionate action and perseverance. Please share this tremendous news with others and let them know that you had a part in making it happen.


Wayne Pacelle
