Growing Up Fast–WDP Growth

Growth is the WordPress Daily Post prompt and I decided to feature a group of photos I took in June. The series began when I noticed a bird nest near my back door with a parent feeding a new baby on June 7. The final picture was taken just before the first baby took off… Continue reading Growing Up Fast–WDP Growth

Cowboys and Chuck Wagons–Nostalgia

What says Cowboys more than a chuck wagon? It was the center of a cattle drive. The hearth where the cowhands gathered for nourishment and camaraderie.

Now maybe you have some rare breed that is genetically engineered to take up conversations with… Continue reading Howling At the Moon?

Daily Post–Portraits

This portrait was taken during a visit to China, and I found this gentleman intriguing because of his intensity.                                                                 He watches…intently.

Weekly Photo Challenge–Spare are various definitions of the word ‘Spare’, and what comes to my mind is ‘extra’, as in a spare tire, spare tools, spare bedrooms. Here are pictures of my spare bedrooms, just waiting on paying and non-paying guests…clean sheets and all. Spare 1 Spare 2
