The color and black and white pix of Tinker Creek were taken during a break in the action yesterday at the Roanoke Regional Writers Conference at Hollins University.
Tinker Creek, of course, is the title character of Annie Dillard's Pulitzer Prize-winning A Pilgram at Tinker Creek. The black and white here has a Matthew Brady feel. If the tree stump were a dead Confederate solidier, I'll bet I could fool you with it.
