Misty Afternoon

"grainy pictures
falling on quiet hearts"

   The weekend was so warm and then this morning I woke up and the air was cool and the sky was misty and grey. Such a change! I didn't mind so much though - today feels like a quiet, peaceful day. Last week my Mum did some painting in her room and there were sheets of plastic over everything. I happened to be wandering with my camera and started playing with the light and the sheets until I had a group of photos that I thought looked very dreamy and mysterious. Sometimes when I look at them it seems like the room is underwater or that everything is frozen in time waiting for people to come home. I have also included a suitably dreamy fairytale drawing. I hope you like looking at the fruits of my misty afternoon...
