"I found it impossible…..

…… to regard the Frollett Homestead and not hear the chants of the ghosts of children, children who play there no longer. Children grown
old. Children passed on. The day I visited the Frollett homestead I kept looking at my octogenarian host, only to see beside me a boy not yet eight." ( Copyright © 2010 Colin Snowsell from the book, "The Frollett Homestead" )

I liked the way that the pine cones and pine needles contrast one another , I made the image with my 4 x 5 film camera and a 120mm lens.

I really like what you've done with this project, Gary. Wonderful work, all of it.

Thanks, Chuck, its been a interesting project for sure, Robert MacDonald who spear-headed and published the book, was instrumental in choosing the images from my over all collection, I thought they fit in well with the story, now we will see if we can sell the first edition of 500 copies, did I mention that each is numbered and signed ?

Okay, okay, I get the hint. Book ordered.

Actually, I'm looking forward to it both for the photos as well as the story. Thanks for the nudge.
