Went to a reclaimed lumber dealer. Bought some old pine barn wood and whipped up a photo background. My dad's baseball glove that I used a few times in the old days.

Still experimenting with my old camera.

I remember in the days before I broke down and got a digital camera, when I got all my trip pics back, I sat there with a large garbage bag to do the Yes/No bit.

Normally one does not post links to other's photography here but I thought this was funny. And right now a laugh or three wouldn't hurt anyone. These are the winners in the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards. The winner is last, a very funny photo of a grumpy turtle very clearly giving the photographer the finger:

I took almost this exact shot last month. Haven't gotten to editing yet.

I submitted a photo to the online Landscape Photography Magazine for an 'assignment' of 'Wide Angle', and got picked as a runner up.

I love this little guy--so much I'd pay for a print, if you should ever choose to get into that.

We have feeders up around here and love bird watching--and goldfinches are some of my favorites.

I like the goldfinches also. They love eating coneflower seeds, and I have some coneflowers right outside my window. So I see them a lot.

Iím not interested in selling prints. But I will email you a file (free) if you want to get your own print made. Just pm me with an email address if you want.

I took the photo with a great lens, but I did take the shot through a window. But it should be ok to print up to 9x12.
