Checking my photographs for a couple of pictures that speak to each other – This is what I came up with – hope you enjoy them.
While I was trying to get my camera out of the back of my truck, these two elk were banging heads. Just as I got ready to photograph them they quit. It looks like they were talking it over and walked away.
PostaWeek/ PostaDay 8/22/2014
I was getting worried because I couldn’t find another picture for this challenge. If ropes are frayed or clothing frayed I throw then out. I don’t normally take pictures of them. So I’m at a loss for this challenge. Then I ran across this picture and it says ‘Don’t Worry Be Happy” . Relax so here are my choices.
Silhouette of rock formations in the canyon.
If you look in the lower right hand corner, I believe that is me but not really sure because I know that when the sun drops lower in the west shadows become longer. I can say that if that isn’t my Silhouette than it most be someone else’s.
Silhouette of the trees and bushes on this peaceful water. With a small waterfalls and mountains in the background. Doesn’t get more calming and peaceful than this.
My room today is a one room do it all because it is in our motor home. Are room acts as a gathering place to socialize – watch TV-and relax.
To sleep and to eat, which most of the cooking and eating was outside.
With so many guys in the room , it got kind of cluttered
These pictures were taken during an archery competition which my wife and I went on several shoots. Our gift to the boys was to give them a dry place to sleep and not have to eat all there meals at a diner. We cooked and cooked , fed them bacon, eggs, biscuits for breakfast and for lunch it was usually a couple of Boston butts That would be around four o’clock. The guys normally did not have anything to eat from breakfast until 4:00PM. The boys paid for food all fees we just paid for fuel, I think they even gave us money for that.
The guy in red is my wife’s son, also are grandson is among them.
It also subs as a dog house and their toys.
You can see that my wife and I have had a few dogs over the years,all of them rescued. It wasn’t until after we had them several years that they had health problems. We loved them and they loved us, we gave them probably the best years of their lives. They shared our house and the room that I show in the above pictures.
THE William Carson Mansion
One of the most photographed Victorian houses in California, and perhaps in the United States The mansion is in the same condition as when first constructed in the 1880’s. The designers, Samuel and Joseph Newsom, were well respected San Francisco architects who heartily embraced the concept of the “picturesque”, a quality that continues to fascinate all who see the Carson Mansion .
The Carson Mansion was owned by the descendants of William Carson until 1950, when it was sold to the Ingomar Club.
William Carson came to California about 1849 for the Gold rush. Over a few years of felling and hauling lumber, he got out of gold mining, and spent full time in the lumber business. William Carson bought the mill with a partner and went on the start a railroad again with a partner. You can read more at Wikipedia.
The Carson Mansion is on the redwood coast of Humboldt Bay in the city of Eureka California. I have been by the mansion many – many times and have photographed it just about every time. This is a piece of art – the workmanship is superb and flawless.
Post A Week
Doing this post gave me an insight of how blessed I have been the past many years. All of these photos I have done, maybe not in the exact – plane ,hot air balloon, train, river paddle boat, bike race, but it sure was the same motor coach.
Yes I had many occasion to fly in air planes In the Navy and from Los angles to Savannah two or three times a year.
I got to fly in a hot air balloon in a festival in Albuquerque, NM
I rode this train in Bush Gardens in Tampa,FL
I didn’t ride this paddle boat but I rode the one in Disney Land in Anaheim, California and the paddle boat in Disney World in Orlando,Florida.
I did ride in a couple of bike races in California.
Yes we have pretty blessed to have done a lot of things and been to a lot of places,met a lot of nice people and made many friends.
One time we spent a week or two in a forestry camp ground on the North side of Mt Lassen National Park. There is a little stream there and I went fishing and met fellow fisherman, struck up a conversation seemed to hit it off. Every day that we were in the park we would meet up and swap fish stories.. One day a fish that I caught I had asked him if he wanted it, He said no, he was saving room in his freezer for the big one that he was going to catch. I replied that I had plenty of room in my freezer when I eat it I’ll tell everyone you caught it. LOL
