aguja - it was the original farmhouse for the area and was huge - deceptively huge and airy inside. a big dinner party of twenty or so people all feasted and drank their way into the evening right where i took this photograph. through the evening there was a heavy dewfall. when i woke, this flower was right there, right outside my tent. oh my. steven

steven said...

terresa - in the past couple of weeks i've slept in a firehall, on a pew, on a back lawn and in countless campsites. this place was the most magical by far. steven
