Now let’s continue this (short) series with a picture of Buster. He was my best friend and I still miss him:

Sally   8 comments

After Amy’s comment [„they give immense joys“] to my post about Angel, our cousin’s long-gone Bernese mountain dog, I decided to post pictures of all our (previous) dogs here. And even if I had shown her before, I still want to start with Sally. Here she is again:


Sally, a Most Gentle Soul

She arrived at our former place, in Karnes County, as a stray, full of worms and fleas, and just skin and bones, but her gentle ways immediately captured our hearts, where she had a place till the end and beyond.

She’s long gone from us – or from our cousin in Denver, rather – but we still remember her fondly:

Old and new – especially with the old mirrored in the new – present a very interesting contrast in St. Louis/Missouri:

From whichever perspective you look at it: the Gateway Arch in St. Louis/MO is a fascinating edifice:

St. Louis/MO Bridges – Continued   14 comments

It’s quite a while since I last published any of my pictures from our „RailTrailsRoadTrip“ in October last year. So I really need to continue. Here’s a picture of Eads Bridge. We passed underneath it on our 2-hour cruise of the waterfron to St. Louis.

This picture has been edited, I must admit, both with ACDSee Ultimate 9 [for a light equalizer] and with easyHDR [for enhancement of details], but I think this brings out the fine metal structure very well, even if it does look a tad artificial.

Our First Fawn of the Year   9 comments

When we had seen some does on our property lately that were heavy with fawns, we knew it was only a matter of time before we’d see a newly-born one, and today we were that lucky. Here it is:


Welcome in Our World, Little One

The quality of the picture is not the best, but that was all I could do under the circumstances: low light and a long [400 mm] tele lens. But I really didn’t want to miss that situation.
