I don't know why I like this picture of our partially completed Beef Bourguignon so much...

But I do.

The sun made a show of coming out on this dark and cloudy morning...

Snowy Morning...

After a recent snowfall, the morning sun caught the very clingy snow coating absolutely everything. 

Saturday, December 10, 2011


I woke up this morning hoping to see the eclipse. Got the camera out and on the tripod and went out to watch. The clouds actually parted for a while during which time I got this shot but just as the eclipse was scheduled to start, WHAM! the clouds completely obscured everything - and in fact it started to snow.

So it goes.

Brandy's new bed

We are still fostering Brandy. No commitments have been made. We have not adopted her. Really.

We did get her a dog bed though. She clearly understood that it was for her and even "helped" in the assembly process.

Once assembled, she knew exactly what to do with it.

Though we have not received the final report, initial indications are quite positive.

Morning Sun

Gorgeous clouds over East Thetford this morning. Unfortunately I missed photographing them. They were truly impressionistic but of course the dog has to be fed and these things are fleeting! The morning did give us this slice of sunlight however and for that I'm grateful.

Fall in Vermont...

The simple joys of fall in New England lie all around us these days...

Fall Dahlia

Our dahlia is continuing to grow and change even as the summer comes to an end. I pulled him out of his immediate environment with this image taken on a rainy October day.

Brandy at Dog Mountain

Brandy got to visit Dog Mountain yesterday and I practiced taking pictures of her - not always an easy thing to do. Though we are technically fostering her still, it seems inconceivable that she will not continue to be a part of our household. Nevertheless, I'm trying to approach photographing her as if I'm trying to promote her adoption - maybe this is something we can do more of in the future.

We walked along some of the paths above the Dog Chapel. I don't think she was sticking her tongue out at me but... I'm not sure.

Eventually coming around to a nice overlook of the chapel.

Keeping an eye on other dogs - and people!

Our new foster dog Brandy on a walk this morning. She is a very smart dog and red to boot!

More Fawn pictures

Now that this year's fawns are getting bigger, we see more of them and they are getting closer to the house. This little guy was visiting our front yard yesterday morning...

Yesterday was Thetford, Vermont's 250th birthday which was celebrated with a wonderful fireworks display!

Black and white. Light and Dark. Terrible news and Joyous News. What a tapestry.

More Dahlia...

I told you that I wouldn't be able to stop at just one photo of our blooming Dahlia. Here is the proof in the filtered morning light with just a little dew clinging to him.

We saw the two fawns we've been tracking this summer the other night near the house. It made me pine for a fast long lens because of the weak light and the distance involved but that sort of stuff costs real money. This one came out OK though and shows off our youthful visitor nicely!

We found this sparkling web in the morning light yesterday. The dark trees provided a sharp contrast as the morning light lit up the droplets of water.

Dalia doh!!! "Dahlia" time...

This won't be the last picture I post of our Dahlia. This guy has been with us for several years now - lying dormant in the garage all winter and then coming to life every summer. It seems (to have) a deeper color than in past years and is just gorgeous.

I'm endlessly fascinated by the lilies in our back yard. They are so beautiful by themselves and serve as such an attraction for all sorts of winged creatures.

It's hot!

Meg got this shot (through the screen) of this guy succumbing to the hot weather. It's just too hot to stand up!

New Book Available!

We are really excited to publish our first book through! We actually developed the book with the intention of entering it into the Photography Book Now competition but amazingly missed the submission deadline.

This is a travel book consisting of some of our favorite photos from around the world (that sounds more exotic than it is) rendered in Black and White to explore the textures and new meanings hidden behind the color.

Take a look and let us know what you think!

Juvinile Robin

The other day at work, an interesting bird was clumsily feeding outside my window. I guessed correctly that it was a young robin. Sadly I was shooting through tinted glass but was able to Photoshop out some of the distortion. 

Beautiful bird!

This time of year, completely out of the blue, mushrooms appear all over the place. There are a tremendous variety of them ranging from those crazy Indian Pipe things to the more conventional lawn based toadstools.

I found this one yesterday morning and just love how the toadstool looks sprinkled with little flavor crystals.

Meg snapped this shot of one of this years fawns in our front yard. These youngsters are all ears and legs!
