love the series.
do you know the work of deborah turbeville? her photography captivated me decades ago with its dreaminess, arbitrariness, lushness. these remind me of her work

Light, soft and dreamy...looking at this series is like walking into another time.

Thank you Judy and Lisa! Judy, I'm thrilled that you should make that connection as Deborah Turbeville is one of my favourite photographic artists and her books are a great source of inspiration. Lisa, your response is most appreciated as sense of time is a quality that I strive to invest in much of my work.
