The doves normally look for food on the ground and I have never seen one on the bird feeder before. I think he was just checking out the lay of the land…..
Last year found my son and myself in Ohio for my work. We finished our project a few days early and as I had not seen my 96-year-old grandfather in a long time, we headed toward Allentown, Pennsylvania. On the way there we made a quick stop at Falling Water, a major item on my Bucket List, then continued on to Allentown.
After visiting with my grandfather, we knew we had at least a day and a half drive. How cool would it be to take my son through Washington DC? So I did!
We spent only about 3 hours on the National Mall, but I was able to experience a very special time with my son and I hope it is something he never forgets. I know I won’t……
My wife has been asking for a picture of her kids for a while now which is hard to do when one lives out-of-state and the other has a very busy life. We were able to sneak an hour in on a recent visit and a had tremendously wonderful time just taking the pictures.
With a family as close as these kids, I had to take a lot of shots to get past their playfulness and silliness.
In the end we got several great shots to give to mom and I learned a few things I wish I had done differently…
“Yosemite Valley, to me, is always a sunrise, a glitter of green and golden wonder in a vast edifice of stone and space.”
― Ansel Adams
This was a day I was just not in the mood to take pictures and got a nice result…
