By Ted Grussing
… I do portraiture and especially enjoy those of critters like this Coopers Hawk. The problem is that usually they are not susceptible to direction by the photographer and could care less if they get their picture taken or not … a treat for me when it does work out.
A fun and busy people day today … the weather is not nice, but it is beautiful … Mariah is still not flyable and when the weather is like this it is okay; when the sun arrives I know the spectacular beauty that awaits me and by then I know that the engine will be running smoothly and cool and my furnace will be warm.
We’re into the weekend … enjoy the family and friends around you and call those who are not … and smile for life is good. Back Monday morning with another photo.
Cold lies the lifeless earth,
the birds are gone, and through
the naked trees the shrill wind
whistles. Though the world
outside be chill and dead, may the
world within us resound
with gleeful songs, and our hearts
be warm with hope and love.
And may many an evenings’
merriment, beside the
hearthstone’s cheerful glow, make
sweet the passing time
