  13. Hi Jane! I’m Lorea, from zehatzmehatz.WordPress.com. Thanks for your comment and likes. Its very motivating as I’m just trying to learn. That’s why I follow the good photography blogs I find, and yours is great. I really like your photos, and your posts. I’m studying english too so it’s also a good chance for me reading what you write. So, congratulations for your work and thanks again. I’ll read you here.

  14. Inspiring gallery and quotes, and your gravatar picture reveals an open and honest face 🙂

  15. Great photos, i especially love your last one ! … // Maria 🙂

  16. Great photo series which harmonized perfect with the quotes. I really enjoyed your windows, Jane.

  17. Love this series, Jane. It reminded me of a scene I wished I had captured 15+ years ago. I lived in an apartment atop Twin Peaks in SF, and had a window that I would leave open a crack, just for a little fresh air for my cat, Peaches. She would sit and wait for me to come home. As I approached the door, Peaches would stick her paw out and move it up and down, like she was waving to me. All I could see was her paw sticking out of the building. The movement is similar to those cat figures that you see all over Chinatown. It was such a comfort then, and thinking about it now brings me such joy. Thanks for the trip down memory lane! xo

    • Hi Diane, Oh, what a lovely story about your window and Peaches. Love it! It is especially satisfying when a post or an image elicits a fond memory or experience. Thank you so much for letting me know, friend!

  18. Very nice pictures. I love your blog! I am following you…

  19. This is really a very nice little series, Jane.

  20. Love them all AND the quotes!
    Thanks for your talent
    Ann
