Rag Rats Looking Out Their Ragged Window by Mareta Fraser.

November 's Photo of the Month is Rag Rats Looking Out their Ragged Window by Mareta Fraser.  Mareta wrote "The name of the title reminds me of the cartoon programme Rug Rats, they are both mischief and have their own baby talk." 

Congratulations Mareta - a beautiful mix of rugged realism and soft focus wistful beauty.
