Hey, I look at that same photo of the bombed-out British library every time I ... well, it's a fascinating image to me. Laura has a big print of it in her bathroom. I've wanted to get one for the library. (Which brings to mind another photo I've wanted to pursue, by an old Christian Science Monitor photographer I always enjoyed but whose name escapes me now. I have in my kitchen the clipped photo from the CSM, in a frame. It's a little chinese boy sitting on the back of an ox in a rice field in the pouring rain reading a book in one hand and holding an umbrella in the other. Lovely image.) I have a notion of these photos being instructive somehow, but if nothing else, someone might enjoy them as much as I do.
