"Poetry to the Eye"

On our vacation to Jerome, I had the chance to visit the largest kaleidoscope shop in the world, Nellie Bly !
It was positively packed with kaleidoscopes!
   Each one had its own ever changing picture, all beautiful. 
This picture shows my brothers and me as we each view a separate circle of beauty.

These are some of the many "poems to the eye" we viewed. 

Did you know : 
     The first kaleidoscope was created by David Brewster in 1816.  It was later commented,  "In the memory of man, no invention . . . ever produced such an effect."  
     In Japan, kaleidoscopes are thought to be a tool to unlock dreams.

     More than 90  kaleidoscopes artists are represented at Nellie Bly.
Griggs, one of the artists, estimates that she has spent more on her kaleidoscope collection then she did on her first house.
 Thank you for your notice, Cameron.
