Kay L. Davies said...

I remember when Dr. Seuss books first came out.
I love the eyelashes on that critter in the last photo. Is it a llama or a camel or an alpaca? Adorable, anyway, all these fotos.

I REALLY enjoyed these photos and your interview!

I envy both of you for having such a vision and talent for photography.

I like that she got over her fear and asked people if she could take their pictures. Interviewing strangers is what I am learning to feel comfortable with.

Thanks Rebecca!
