bull bay
Visited the Rotunda yesterday to see the magnolias that have occupied the gardens flanking that structure for a century. Has the fate of the trees been sealed?

Will Mr. Tom come flying out of the Rotunda when the chainsaws crank to bargain with the sawyers? Possibly he could have made tiny replicas of the Rotunda from the bull bay heartwood.

I stumbled off the track to success in 1968, started chasing shadows that summer. Since then, In addition to farm-laborer and newspaper photographer my occupational incarnations include dishwasher, janitor, retail photo clerk, plumber, HVAC repairman, auto mechanic, CAT scan technologist, computer worker and politico (whatever it takes to buy a camera.) I am on the road to understanding black and white photography.
