I was all prepared to visit the WayBack Machine once again as I am still caught up in digitizing early work of mine – images that I had all but forgotten about. But then the sun came out and I remembered a large fossil rock I had brought back from last week’s foray in the woods. It was covered with brachiopods. I knew that they ran throughout the rock and that any attempt to chop it up would only result in more combinations of fossils being exposed.
It did not disappoint. These first six images came from that one rock.
The second rock is one I borrowed from my friend, Ann. This piece of coral probably came from this area but she wasn’t sure. Either way, it seemed to be a near-endless source for exploring. Here are just a few.
A recent trip to Glens Falls resulted in this last selection. Cindy and I paid a visit to the Hyde Collection. I had always heard that it was a real gem of a museum – and it was. The interior was beautiful but, true to form, I chose instead to turn my camera to the grounds out behind the museum. Must have been the rocks…
These last two are images of the paper mill down the hill (and the original source of the fortune that eventually created the museum).
Thank you as always for visiting this site. More images at www.artmurphy.com
