Here are a dozen of Ellen’s favorite photos from a recent trip we took to England. We spent four days on the southern coast of England and then returned to London so Ellen could work, and I could play.

AMAZING. In scene after scene, Ellen has captured the essence of the way it is, I could smell the day and hear the quiet and feel the space. She has the perfect sense for the perfect way to view perfect everyday sights and the skill to frame and record their beauty to show that they are truly special. So very nice. No wonder the Brits cling so tenaciously to their countryside and memories of their past glory.
I shall transfer these portraits to my photo montage device and show them continuously on the flat screen TV in my office with a printed legend on the set that reads :”Photos by Ellen Miller–Inquire Within” so they don’t think these are my home movies. My contribution to this artistic endeavor is to be an appreciative viewer. Manet used oil and canvass; Ellen uses a camera. Its not the tool; it is the eye.
PS: When is the “Best of the Best of Ellen Miller” publication coming out? Many of her pictures of everything rank equally with the best photographs I have ever seen and I would like to be able to sit quietly in a chair by the fireplace with a glass of something old in my hand and a book on my lap to help me remember and imagine…
lovely Ellen!! look forward to getting the details and seeing it hopefully.

These are absolutely the highest quality photographs I have seen in many a year, by a person who is not, officially, a professional photographer! Wow! Each one claims one’s time to linger and explore the aesthetic sense of the place–thank you, Ellen, for having such a keen eye and artistic sense–
And for Richard, for sharing these gems!
