Early in the morning there was still that smoke in the air, requiring flash for photos. Come the afternoon the sun was bright enough that at Sota’s place no flash was needed. Too bad that I was ready for nap … Continue reading

Nice an early for us, so I thought it a good time to take a sunrise photo. Too bad that one has to have power lines with the sunrise and sunset photos here. It is possible to avoid them, but … Continue reading

The Prairie Coneflowers are still blooming. They don’t bloom this long around Edgemont. Nice to see them as we jog by. When the sun was out, it got darn hot. My jog kinda did me in. Later in the morning … Continue reading

One thing that I like about Tower Road is that… you never know what critters might be scampering around in the oak bushes. It makes for a lot of entertainment. Hey, another sunny morning! How about that? We had an … Continue reading

You know, they always say that side lighting is better for portraits than full on lighting. But that’s for humans. What about for basset hounds? Well, I guess one has to judge for oneself on this. Sometimes side lighting is … Continue reading

Yeah, you can probably guess what I was doing this morning as the sun was out with blue skies. That’s right, checking for Prairie Dogs and rabbits and enjoying the wildflowers. I’m sort of an outside basset hound. Though I’ll … Continue reading

Darn dreary morning for our jog. Turned into pretty much a dreary day until the evening came along, then we got some rainbows… and a nice sunset. Wish I would be having the great time George did in 2008!

I wasn’t hitting the road today like George did in 2008. Actually, I spent plenty of the afternoon time napping… as Karen and dad set up a new Epson P800 printer. It’s a beast of a printer, but should print … Continue reading
