Your journaling is so interesting and your photos (& those paintings) are really lovely.  I like your masking and framing and your cluster is perfect - so pretty without overwhelming.   Your title is really elegant.

This is so cool! I love that you were able to get a photo from the same perspective as shown in  Constable's painting. Lovely framing with just the right touch of embellishment, and I like the olde English font, too.
