Dramatis persona*

helenhead Helen Chick

I've always wanted a bumper sticker that said "I'm a female, LDS/Mormon, Scout leading, geocaching, piano-playing, bicycling, mathematics educator with a PhD in maths ... and I VOTE"!

I think this makes me a minority group of cardinality 1!

* Since there's only one of me and "personae" is plural (I think), I've gone with dramatis persona.

Midlands 2016-#5N

This week’s first Midlands trip allowed me to capture something I’ve been waiting for awhile. Just south of Ross, on the property “Somercotes”, stands all that remains of Horton College, once a fairly prestigious boys’ school that operated in the mid-late 1800s. The arched entrance — which I once thought was a “folly” rather than the genuine remnants of a very large building — faces east, and I’ve been waiting for the sun to be in the right spot to capture its incongruous  magnificence.


It was a glorious morning as I drove past, and the light was right to catch a late autumn shot of Somercotes homestead itself, on the other side of the highway from the Horton College portico.bIMG_7353

[The Midlands series of photos are taken on my various trips northward from Hobart, to help me appreciate a journey that, because of its length and the frequency with which I have to do it, could easily become a trip begrudged.]
