Taken by my daughter while doing one of my favorite things.
I want to thank friends of Allen’s Zoo as we approach the end of the year, the response to my work still amazes me. I also would like to wish everyone a very happy New Year and albeit a belated Merry Christmas. The holidays arrived before I knew it.

Like the island of cyclops. Taken yesterday during my morning walk.
Must be that time of season..it’s begun to snow.

Happy Halloween everyone!
Also…this just in. Friend, fellow blogger and gifted portrait photographer Kim Ayres has just posted his third annual pumpkin carving post. It’s well worth the visit to see his pumpkin carving not to mention his photography.
Here’s something I just happened upon for those animation fans out there. An interview with the legendary Andreas Deja.

I took this photo yesterday about prime time, meaning prime time light, what little there was. People were having family picnics on benches just in front of me. They seemed oblivious or at least uninterested in the show the sky was putting on.
Last night I woke just before midnight. I lay in bed around ten minutes before I felt a motion. I thought “Is this one of those moments I’m feeling involuntary body movement?” The movement pretty quickly became pronounced. Although not very strong it was strong enough and lasted at least a minute or two. When done I looked at the clock next to my bed. It was 11:55pm. This earthquake could be called the Halloween earthquake…unless of course we have another before then.
When I woke I remembered dreaming of a tsunami. I then remembered reading an article about dreams. A theory that the significance dreams had was a survival mechanism in a sense to warn us of danger. Guess a tsunami could happen although I don’t know if there’s a danger of a tsunami this particular time. I think I’ll avoid walking too close to the shoreline though.

I realized I haven’t posted for some time. I wanted to let people know I’m alright despite the necessity of my energy being directed to less than positive things.
Anyway above is a drawing from a moment I was able to get away and do what I love to do.
