It is going to be a gorgeous day here in Umbria. I’m silly about the weather and think about it way too much. When I was young I wanted to be a meteorologist. I’m really glad I changed my mind. I have one friend who thinks what you wanted to be as a child does reflect who you become. He says, "I should have known I would be gay when I was always rearranging my bedroom at 8 years old!" He became a photographer.

in the same chippy style
Today I want to do a post of showing how I love empty picture frames. I have done this for years way before it was in style (hasn’t it always been in style?). Well before people used to come into our home and say, “What’s going on?” I would respond, “There you can see the future”.

Plus I love the massiveness of empty walls and I believe in lots of good art and beautiful photographs.
This gorgeous little gold frame I brought in Ecuador with the same friend who became a photographer. He was such a jerk, when I said I didn't want to buy it because I would have to carry it all the way home. He said, "You can enjoy it for the rest of your life, or regret it for the rest of your life".

Sometimes I put this little photo I took of Elisa, she was so tiny then.
To me empty frames are just fun to play around with.

Empty frames they may be temporary and on their way to becoming part of something more important.
