When I first saw this fossil grouping of crinoids on my recent trip to the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History all I could think about were the bronze reliefs on the doors of the Florence Bapistry. I have often referred to the “sculptural beauty” of the fossils I photograph. And in this case I saw the trees in the panel landscapes.
A few days ago, while driving through central New York, I came across a very large antique/junk shop. Acres surrounding the main building were filled with objects everywhere, some placed deliberately, others strewn haphazardly about.
The old and the very old.
Thank you very much for the visit.
