If I had a twitter account, I'd write...

"... today I saw a squirrel bounding across our front lawn carrying a chartreuse tennis ball in his mouth."

Apparently this wasn't a unique event.  One of my colleagues found the following image, after a google search!

I'd be happy to give credit to the photographer, but I have no idea who took this image.
Here is a link that will take you to the source of the image, however:

Two (grand)baby pictures

Hope you've been enjoying the travelogue

I'm up through Day #9 of my Canadian Rockies travelogue.  I hope you've been enjoying it.  It can be found on my photography blog (not on this blog).

If you click the link below, it will always show the most currently published travelogue post at the top, followed by the prior days' posts in chronological order.  As of this moment the most current post will be Day #9, Part II.  Tomorrow, if you go to this link it will show Day #10 at the top.  Etc, Etc.

Boats and Watercraft...

I just got an email from my photo club, regarding our upcoming September meeting.

As it turns out, one of the contests in September will be for images that fit the category:  boats and watercraft.  I don't know if the one below will score well or not, but I love it!  And it certainly fits the category.  It was taken along the Bow River in Banff, Alberta Canada

War Canoe Along the Bow River, Alberta, Canada

A couple of Colorado pictures, from Jaimie

Jaimie emailed me these fantastic pictures.  She came across these elk while hiking in Rocky Mountain National Park.

A better link for the Canadian Rockies posts

Yesterday's post provided a link to Post #1 of our two week Canadian Rockies trip. The link was missing the middle section, and didn't work for about an hour until I corrected it. It will now get you to Post #1.

But it will not get you to Post #2 which was published earlier today.

So, I have keyworded all the posts "west2012", so if you use the following link at any time you will get all the posts currently published, in chronological order, with the most recent at the top.

Travelogue of our Canadian Rockies trip

I have just finished a series of about 14 posts (to be “published” at the rate of one each day) covering the 14 days of our Canadian Rockies trip.  They will appear on my photography blog, and I thought some of you might enjoying reading about the trip and seeing a few pictures.

I’ve taken a travelogue approach whereby I include a map each day of where we traveled and the pictures are not intended to be necessarily the “best ones” but ones that might tell a story of the journey.

I just uploaded the first post and it is here:

A few from yesterday's NH fishing trip

8 a.m. breakfast at Poor Boys' Restaurant, just off  Rt. 93 in New Hampshire, at exit 5.  What you see is Poor Boys' Specials for each of the three of us. Two plates each.  I am embarrassed to say that I was the only one to finish everything.  (Well, obviously not too embarrassed!!)

Ellis River near Pinkham Notch.  We fished the Ellis River is two areas and the Peabody River.

8 p.m. treat before heading home.
