Kind of art, so last tuesday, I was biking and I saw some large fish trapped in a pool of water. After calling animal control and the fish and game dept, both would do nothing, I came back on Thursday to see how they were.
Then, I came back on Sunday and they were back to being confined to their pond.
Back to their pond.
George, that's beautiful. And kids, Mr. Robin is just sleeping.
One of the best pieces of advice I've ever had from a professional photographer was to take lots of photos and be very self critical. This fellow said he might take one, two, or more rolls of film (this was back in the film days), just to get a single shot - but his single shots ended up on the cover National Geographic.
Cougar - I might have to take up golf!
Very nice. I like the expressions, conformations, and background detail.
I used to work in oils, pen & ink, and calligraphy but these days, it's mostly photography...
...but then I do consider myself somewhat the artisan in smoked goods. After 21 days in a maple & brown sugar cure, followed by about 6 hours in the smoker with smoldering apple wood, this is my Canadian bacon:
I also work in leather on occasion but I have no photos handy, I'm afraid.

Very nice indeed! It looks professional.here is another one I did when I was 15 years old I had to get the seamstress out to stitch it for me.
Beautiful work, chrissy! You had/have real artistic talent.
This is a model of a ship that I designed for the BSG Universe:
It was deployed in large numbers during the first Cylon War as a ground attack craft, equipped with both heavy cannons and air to ground missiles as well as air to air missiles. To keep the weight of the ships down, some were ordered from the factory without paint, just the standard heat-resistant coating given to all colonial space vehicles was applied to the bare metal skin. This did lead to some confusion among colonial pilots, due to the fact that Cylon ships were normally shiny instead of their own. After the war, most were scrapped. A few wound in museums, one actually became a piece of playground equipment at a park on Gemenon.
George those birds are beautiful, I don't recognise either , the red one looks like some kind of crested finch and the other looks like a bee eater or something! I just don't know, but a great pic thanks.
Gemini the rocket is cool, can I ask you are you the Touched or the Untouched/ Broca divide. been meaning to ask you this ages ago from your gate address.
The red one is a Cardinal, common in central Texas. I don't recognize the other one.
Kaptain K and chrissy,
Yes, it is a male Cardinal. The other is a Green Jay and they are found in northern South America, north and south Central America, and southern North America. I've never seen one in or around San Antonio -- too far north. This was taken 100 km south of town.
The Green Jay is, reportedly, all over the southern region of Texas, we call the Valley.
There were three of these Green Jays and they seemed to enjoy the Cardinals.
here is one of my work,
I use this as a base for my Avatar picture.
the original piece is about 20X14 inches and is hanging in my studio
here are some more from the series.
the last one with the snowmen was made way back in the late 80's with my best friend and his camera on a snowy day where we only got like 3 inches of snow and we were to lazy to make big snow men. I believe it was inspired by a Calvin and Hobbs comic strip.
I love the snow creatures. C&H's snowmen are some of my favorites.
hmm. it looks like one of my uploads has been removed.
any ideas? moderators?
the pics are great the snowmen remind me of what my son and his mate did while on guard duty earlier this year, I will try and get it off him and put it on here.
Cool snowmen! I will have to post some of my drawings and photo's, some I might not be able to!
