Joyce's Yard


Here's Joe and Joyce Guffey's backyard. Well, part of it. They are kind enough to let the family invade their space 2 or 3 times a year. How brave.

This a really accomplished piece with a wide range of technical devices used to create the reality of the scene. Like this a lot.

Beautiful yard and lucky family members who get to be invaders a couple of times a year. This smacks of southern genteel.

Thanks Mick. I was trying to pull rabbits out of my hat before this one was finished. ;)

Thanks Autumn. They are so hospitable to take us in a few times a year.
