I wasn’t familiar with Galena (other than the town of the same name in Stone County) until Mary brought a fist-sized chunk of it home one day.  As an ore of lead, it is gray, crystalline, and very heavy. Fascinated by its reflective properties in light, I’ve spent the last few days trying to capture it in a photograph.

I really wanted to try working with clay again.  The last time I did, it went very well and the clay cooperated by sticking throughout the photo session.  This time, it dried and flaked off very quickly, and was a bit of a mess.  The rest of the session worked with a cloak (well, the clay is a form of a cloak) as a tribute to Joyce Tenneson’s work.
