1) I'm sorry for your frustration.
2) *eyes pics* I totally see it. I am also very unhelpful.
Oh, I don't mind that much - she's very pretty, after all! The only frustrating bit is the rudeness with which some people seem to feel justified in using to address me when they actually think I am her. Certainly makes the notion of being famous a lot less appealing.
I always enjoy your photos, but the first is absolutely fascinating. It took me a few moments to understand what I was seeing... Thank you for sharing, N. (And my heart breaks a little for the mom that had to bury her two wee children.)
Also, *snicker snicker* ;)
I agree about the photos. And also the mum and her babies (waaah- noooooo! Somehow, it's worse that the dates are from the early 1960's rather than the 1860's. The infant mortality rate shouldn't be that high for one family! Not that it would have been better for mothers in the 19th c. Just... just... world, you are not fair!)
Also, the countryside in England is so much less dull, dun colored bleakness than Central Minnesota. I was out for a country drive today and it was really just tan tan buff brown tan brown dun dust dirt brown. And one fool who had an ice house out on a lake that is NOT frozen over well enough to take the weight of a large dog on it, much less a shelter and three people with fishing gear.
Thank you! When I cropped it, I knew that was a good photo. Sometimes I have to work for quite some time to be sure, but that one was certain straightaway.
The bloke found that gravestone and showed it to me. Perhaps it was an odd thing to be grateful for, but I was.

Oh wow he's right you are her. haha.
I wouldn't mind having her salary, but just about everything else I'd leave. ;)
What an amazing set of photos! Gorgeous.
Wow. Coming from a person whose photos I "add to Favourites" on Flickr every other day, this means a lot to me. Thank you.
Oh please, you're a fantastic photographer! Certainly you knew that. :-)
Also, do bunnies have funerary significance that I don't know about?
No, I don't think so! The bunnies were in Baddesley Clinton, which is a National Trust property near Birmingham.
Love the photos that always make me want more :)
And I could see the Myleene resemblance! Maybe it could help you get a table in a restaurant, or body double work!
It's only a superficial resemblance. I think if we were placed side by side someone might think we were related, but they certainly wouldn't think we were twins.
OK, now I'm embarassed, 'cos I totally never spotted the resemblance. And now I have to wonder whether that's despite or actually *because of* the fact that I once had a teeny tiny crushette on Myleene, and thereby became familiar with every detail of her face from all angles. [BLUSH] =:o\
Also: Photos. Goodness! [EXAMINES THEM SOME MORE]
(Also, gotta love the idiot (who shows up on Google's first page of hits) who's got a wallpaper of Paris Hilton labelled as being Myleene. [SIGH] )
I think it's only a superficial resemblance, honestly. Our faces are proportioned quite differently - I have a much gummier smile and a lot less forehead.
I am afraid I will never be able to unsee that. ARSE.
So I shall look at your beautiful, haunting pictures again to rinse out my eyes. I loved the Victorian dreariness which is completely at odds, yet so in tune, with the more modern subject matter.
Thank you. I'm glad they work as a set - once I work on stuff for a while, I have difficulty telling if they mesh.
I think they do ! Nicely done !
PS : Christmas card ? See latest post of mine xx
I don't think I'm a "dead ringer" for her anyway. I have a much gummier smile, and a lot less forehead. :P
well done for discovering the Lickey Hills. :) i meant to recommend it as a specific place you should explore but forgot. i'm glad you found it anyway. :) alas, i didn't make nearly enough use of it when i still lived in the West Midlands.
i'm surprised that people mistake you for Myleene Klass; judging by photos you really don't look like her. have you ever tried telling anyone that's somehow made that mistake that you're a physicist? if you did, i expect your accent would put the matter to rest. :)
Hiking there was recommended by several people, including an estate agent (!). Now we want to live there. ;D
It doesn't matter to some people when I start speaking and I clearly have the wrong accent. They're stubbornly convinced I must be her. It's weird.
