It figures

I was blown away by this beautifully composed photograph. I hadn't scrolled down very far, and thought, "This must be some photographer." I scrolled down farther and sure enough, Dorothea Lange, who qualified as 'some photographer' times ten. What a talent she had for subject and composition. Made me smile.

On the Banks of Plum Creek

This type of image always reminds me of On the Banks of Plum Creek. When I read the books as a kid, the time that the Ingalls family spent living in their dugout house was my favorite part of the whole Little House on the Prairie series.
