I especially love the horse pic Allan! You can almost feel the frosty atmosphere with the long morning shadows. I'm sure the horse was looking forward to some warmth from the sun as it gets higher.

 

Thank you Sally. What you are feeling is what I was trying to achieve.

Dad and I went for a drive just north of town about a month after I moved home. He was so happy when he found me this old farmyard while we were out looking for a few of the country churches. He proclaimed it to be his "photo find of the day." Over the years we have done a lot of photo touring. This was our last one, as he passed unexpectedly the next month.

A lovely memory.

 

Stay safe.

Thank you and you too. I think I will have it printed once I move into my new place.

I love my photogenic neighborhood!

In 1990 I got an invite from a friend of my aunt to accompany a Bay pilot taking a tanker into Oakland. I have never handled a car as gently as he edged that ship up to the dock.

After disembarking I discovered that my film advance had packed up and I didn't get a frame.

oh my god, what a great experience, and what a bummer about the faulty camera. I've started following a page that tracks all the ships coming and going, and find in all fascinating.

This is certainly no match for the wildlife pics on this thread, but it's been on the front page of two local papers so it's a favourite upload!

Was the headline in the paper "Hole found in road, the council are looking into it"  😁

And my kitten who wanted to join us now an adult cat.  She has an interest mix of colors, and looks a lot like the original Libyan sand cats that seem to be what the domestic cats came from.
