|***A word about
'gifs'. All the pictures on this
site, with the exception of the top border photos, are compressed 'gifs'. In order
to fit hundreds of pictures on this website, and still allow the viewer to
download the site in a reasonable amount of time, all these pictures have been
'flattened' from jpgs to gifs.
Jpgs are files that have the full complement of colors, light
and shadow, as you can see in the top 7 border pictures. Gifs have been
drastically reduced in file size to expedite downloading the website.
So, add your own depth of imagination to these pictures, and enjoy the tour. Or
better yet, contact Melissa to buy one and put it somewhere where you'll
enjoy looking at it every day!
pictures are available for sale in full jpg format--and in the size and format
of your choice--from Melissa at
