Weekly Photo Challenge: Beloved

There is a story behind every photograph: In this case, it is a story of a young zebra napping near its mother: Then a car starts, and nap time is over: For this story, I have left the smaller images of the zebra composing himself in their original as-shot state. The two larger images I... Continue Reading →


Weekly Photo Challenge: Silence

When I set out to take photos, I often think first about which cameras I am going to take with me.  When the answer includes my Canon 50D, the next question is which lens to bring. For my trip to the Serengeti, the answer included my 70-200mm lens, which broadly speaking, was chosen to help me... Continue Reading →

Weekly Photo Challenge: Pedestrian

Not too long ago I took part in a charity walk whose path toured the grounds of some of the colleges at Cambridge University that are normal shut to the public. There were a lot of beautiful buildings and gardens but at Corpus Christie College I was stuck by this scene of all the pedestrians... Continue Reading →

Weekly Photo Challenge: Frame

While walking this weekend, I came across this ram: Looks a bit forlorn don't you think?  He perked up a few minutes later though: Why? it wasn't because I told him how perfectly I thought his horns framed his face. No, it was because there was a working dog who was starting the process of... Continue Reading →

Weekly Photo Challenge: Face

It's Spring time so it's time for chickens: Time for cute little faces like these: I love taking photos like these.  These particular chickens were hatched in a second grade classroom as part of a life cycles unit and were moved today to a farm.  They grow quickly, but for now they are fluffy and...
