From "Sollie 17" by Edward and Nancy Kienholz. One of the many pieces at the Smithsonian's Reynolds Center's "Modern and Contemporary Art" exhibit. A moving piece, which is described here. It made me think of my days in a college dorm, though never as dreary a reality as the one depicted by the Keinholz couple.

I loved the lighting in this room in the old house my relatives have in Eastern Oregon. They had several rooms ready and waiting for guests at any time. The room is peaceful but has a certain character of yesteryear. It's been a long time since I've seen a rocking chair sitting beside a lonesome window. Perhaps it's a rural thing. Perhaps it's a gesture of relaxation from years ago and there only because of the generation from which my relatives came. Either way, I found it all to be very charming in its simplicity.
Near Wallowa, OR. September 2008.

If I had been consciously aware of the similarity of placement between the two leaves and my feet, I would have chosen to mimic the leaves with my feet. I'm not sure why I love this photo so much, but I tend to use it often as an identifying avatar/image for things I do online. It's me without actually identifying myself.
