appreciate the feedback. For those that asked what I liked about it. It focused on the wood, where normally I would focus on the full picture. I have lots of "in focus" pictures that have a different point of interest. Here the point of interest I was trying to convey was the boards themselves.
liked how this turned out.
Sadly the juvenile sperm whale didn’t make it.
The folks from Baltimore were called in to try to pull it back into the ocean. Appeared to still be alive. Lady was part earlier efforts to calm the whale and try to push it back when the tide came in.
fallen reds on the ground, leaves drooping, but the fall crop emerging
thanks for filling in a bit of the history. I would have loved to see the area prior to the dam. the entire ride along the Columbia was terrific.
the Indian Quaker ruins in the foreground contrasted with the Columbia River Dam at the Dalles,OR for the best shot of some travels in the northwest last week.
maybe the bird is getting used to me, but normally the redbirds are the most skittish. This time it alit about twenty feet from where I was sitting and kept cocking its head as it looked at me. I've never thought much about birds, but as you can see, that's changing...
Sitting there, minding my own business and this guy drops in for some water and a photo session...
squared up as recommended. thanks
Couldn't figure out if these guys were workers on a lunch break or homeless guys. Then too, it could be a social worker talking to a homeless guy. I caught this pic in the center of Rome, a few blocks from the Vatican. As with American cities, there are human contrasts.
This guy's a regular in the backyard. Today the light was just right to catch his reflection as he took a drink from the pool cover...
Out of the ton of pictures Ann and I took on our European adventure, this one rates up there. The universal tug between what the dog wants to do, and what the "master" wants to do. This guy eventually forced its owner to hang up the phone and he pulled her toward something he was fixated on. Just one of those shots that makes you smile...
we visited the ancient city of Pompeii. It was buried by volcano ash. One result was that bodies were vaporized, but encased in ash. When the voids were found, archeologists filled them with cement and the result was very detailed casts of these ancient people in death poses. Eerie and amazing all at once.
