Summer, has arrived and with it has given us an array of weather. We’ve had heavy rain early mornings and by mid day the sun is shining. Some days it is pure sunshine and blue skies all day. Birds are singing all the time. There are so many species that come to our feeders, including one Hummingbird. It has been years since we’ve seen a Hummingbird here on the farm. We believe it is due to the feral cats, not their food source. I am trying to capture this little bird for you to see.
The beautiful canine above is Reese, a crossbreed. He appears to be part Beagle and maybe some German Shepherd in there too. He’s a true gentleman to be around. He is featured today and is also in the Canine Gallery. The camera just loves him. His dark eyes, eye rim pigment and coat color just shine. I am honored to be around such a sweet dog.
Be well, until next time…..

Summer, is almost here. The weather has been just beautiful this week. It has gave me the opportunity to do somethings I love. I got out on the motorcycle for a few short rides, which always revitalizes me. I also was able to take some photographs. I have added several new photo shoots to the Canine Gallery .
Pictured above is a wonderful Labrador Retriever, Brady. We have been caring for at the kennel since he’s a young puppy, and have watched him mature into the lovely canine he is today. We enjoy him every time he visits. He’s very photogenic.
Happy Father’s Day to all the great dad’s out there.
Be well, until next time.

Simplicity, black & white…. monochrome. Way back when, all photos were shot in black and white. Today, many photographers are still using it due to the effects it adds to a photograph. The depth of the grays, blacks and whites. There are even colors you don’t really see. I know personally speaking some photographs to me, look better in black and white.
The Moluccan Cockatoo is a peach colored bird. Meet Delilah a 26+ yr old Moluccan Cockatoo, who is what is known as a ‘plucker”, she pulls her feathers. There is nothing medically wrong, she just plucks. I found the photographs I took of her in color did not speak to me, yet a monochrome picture spoke volumes. I hope you like the expression of her deep eyes. She wasn’t sure if she should eat the banana, which is a favorite of her’s or look at me.
The Black & White Gallery has some samples. I hope you stroll through and see why monochrome photographs are still very popular today.
