We were headed for the Prickly Pear Cays on Day 2 of our catamaran cruise but couldn’t venture through the opening to get to calm side on seal island.   So we continued on to Maunday’s Bay and dropped anchor off of the beach side near Juluca Hotel which is on the southwest side of Anguilla for a lunch and swim in the area.   Played in water for several hours with noodles, snorkel and paddle board.  Basia and Gus gave a try on the paddle board. Basia did great. Gus not so much. Durf.. paddle board to paddle board ace.  Later Gus got the hang ifRead More →

I’ve been working on this image for some time now and will still have a great number of hours to completion.  It’s a mirror image flipped vertically and  will end up around 48″ across and 24+ high.  We are hoping to make it a piece of wall art at our “Ironworks Cabin” in the near future.  Next week we are going to Pomona Car Swap meet and will be looking or some type of automotive window framing from an old front or back window that will size right to become the framing for the picture. The original is a daytime image that has been turnedRead More →

These two pictures were taken in Toronto, Canada by my best friend LG.  This was one of their first snows early in the winter season just a few weeks before they lost power for several day.  They were lucky to have a fireplace to help keep them warm.   I like the brave sole who ventured out at early evening for a brisk cycle!  Many years ago I lived in Toronto for awhile and loved the city.  However, the cold didn’t agree with me and I returned to Phoenix AZ after 3 1/2 years. 45 minutes later….  I must confess a correction 😀 … theRead More →

While touring through Montana we visited the National Bison Range and had the opportunity to view the bison roaming free.  We purposely stopped both to see the animals in a natural habitat and also so that I could take pictures galore of the bison.   It was a thrilling experience and a little scary too.  I kept at a good distance and used my Nikon D60 with Nikon DX 55-200 zoom so as to allow me a safety zone.  Click here to learn more about the National Bison Range which is well worth the visit.   Today there are 350-500 bison who call the BisonRead More →

Zebra Doves are found on Kauai.  Often they are around people probably begging for food.  They where introduced originally from South-East Asia.  They may be a nuisance to some people but to me I found them delightful to photograph.  This particular one was puffing up his chest in greeting.
