Raptures

Bird Rescue

I have driven past it hundreds of time and made a mental note that I should visit someday. In fact,  I did visit them about 10-12 years ago. And we were there 5 days earlier to drop off a baby quail that our neighbor rescued from their cat (see Squirrel TV for details). What the […]

Giant windmills

Holdfast

Holdfast…

This is one of my favorites beach shots. The fact that the rope was wrapped around the seaweed was way cool imagery. It is as if they are holding onto each other for dear life. It symbolizes (at least to me) that we all need help getting through life. I used an off camera flash […]
