Man’s Best Friend

This soft eyed creature was lying in the window of a photo studio near where we live. There was no way I wasn’t going to take its picture.

Love

Actually I was a little late taking this photograph. About 5 seconds before this the young man was hugging his dog in a loving embrace. Nevertheless the warm relationship between human and pet is still hard to miss.

Canine Friend

Quiet Time

Today we were walking along the banks of the Petaluma River looking for birds, when we came across this friendly couple looking like they were doing the same thing.

Earth Day Helpers

These creatures are supposed to be tree kangaroos. They were telling people in Boston’s Public Garden about how they were close to extinction. (The real animals are indeed severely threatened.) Nice to see Earth Day remembered so creatively. Now if only we humans can do better!

Portrait Of A Curious Kudu

We recently spent a terrific couple of weeks roaming around Botswana looking at wild animals. This photograph is the first of a series. I realize this is a huge departure from the Boston street photography I normally post, but please bear with me, you might enjoy what will follow.

Portrait Of A Majestic Lady

We’re in Botswana currently, (You probably guessed this would be a tough picture to take in Boston.) This leopard was my picture of the day for yesterday. It was a terrific thrill to see her.

Sunset On The Zambezi River

We took a boat for a sunset cruise up and down the Zambezi river yesterday. To say it was memorable would be an understatement. Many different kinds of birds, hippos, crocodiles, water buffalo; you name it and it was there. 

The light when I took this shot was right out of the African Queen movie!
