St. Patrick Day

Not much green to photograph today, an overnight snowfall blanketed any signs of Spring that was starting to show. This American Robin was singing for warmer weather to arrive. Erin Go Bragh!

Spring Break – Avian Style

Season 2 Episode 1 – “Honey, that guy with the camera is looking at us again.”

The turtledoves have returned and have begun to make their nest. Not much work was done today, it was windy, and they were a little, umm, frisky with each other. Last year, 3 broods came out of this nest location.

Historic Sunset Station

This is another faux tilt-shift effect. It is fun going back to old photos that I thought were throw aways. The effect adds an entirely new dimension to the perceived view. In this shot is the Historic Sunset Station in San Antonio, TX. Twice listed on the National Register of Historic Places, it has been serving train passengers since January 31, 1903.

Model Railroad?

This is a faux tilt-shift effect done in photoshop. It allows you to fool the mind into thinking they are models. This is a real photo of Lengerich, Germany. Hope you enjoy it.

Locked up

Rusted padlock on a historic log cabin at the county fairgrounds. When the building is open, more photos will be taken.

Rail Car

Sun poking through the brake wheel on an abandoned rail car.


This bike and scooter were hidden in the depths of the Auglaize River. The opening of the dam to lower the water level revealed the treasures. Maybe the owners will recognize their lost Christmas or birthday presents.


This is the water treatment plant overflow pouring into the Auglaize River.
