PPD 86

This excitable young pup was stuck on a second floor balcony, unable to investigate all the passersby. He satisfied himself by watching carefully and barking frequently.

PPD 85

I took a walk down Cherry Creek after work on Firday. In the shadow of a bridge, next to the locks where the gondolas load up, I spotted this heron. He perched there for at least ten minutes before a bored gondola operator scared him off.

But think about it - this is right in downtown Denver, during the middle of the evening rush hour. Kinda reminds you why commuting sucks, doesn't it?

PS, although that was my favorite there are three more pics here, here and here.

PPD 84

This striking wall and "doorway" is facing onto a small basketball court behind a school. The bright primary colors and geometry of it caught my eye from a block away.

Tahoe Pictures - Finally Done!

Yeah, I know nobody really wants to see anyone else's vacation photos. But I'm just happy to be done with these already! They're all under my Vacation category on SmugMug.

PPD 82

I haven't done a PPD in a while, so I figure I'm justified in actually doing four shots this time.

I found this set of birdhouses on a weekend bike ride near Alameda & University. While I was taking these the couple that lived there walked up, no doubt wondering what the heck I was doing taking pictures of the back of their house. After I explained that I wasn't a peeping tom they seemed rather flattered. The birdhouses were made by the mother & her daughter as summer projects.

Morning Juggler

On my daily walk to work I spotted a juggler. He was kind enough to let me take a few (dozen) shots while he waited for his friend.

Click through to see the rest.

Walking Wash Park

Last Sunday I took a little stroll around Wash Park to stretch my legs. Naturally I toted the camera along - I still need to justify the expense to myself. Thankfully I got a few decent snaps.

This dog broke free from his owner and took off on every dog's dream - a wild goose chase! He had a great time of it, with his owner in pusuit yelling after him.
In case you were wondering, the dog's name is "Baby Boy". Who names their dog that?

This was the only gosling I saw all day. I stalked him for the better part of twenty minutes trying to get a close up shot. It's not easy getting closeups of wildlife with a wide-angle lens!

Some people on a bench gave this squirrel a Skittle. Not exactly healthy, but he really seemed to like it.
He must have been fearless, engrossed, or hoping for more - he let me within three feet to take this shot.

Come on, gimme a Skittle!

I'm crazy squirrel guy, gimme some candy!

He sat up and twitched his tail at me for about twenty seconds, but his sudden onset of cuteness still did not score him a Skittle.

People's Fair 2007

We took a spin around People's Fair today and got a few decent snaps. Check out all of them here.



I've been working on some (hopefully) pretty good photos lately, but none of them are done yet. But I was lucky enough to catch some goofy stuff on digital film last Friday.

A scooter - it's the only dignified way for a businessman in a suit to get around.



It must be a depressed economy when it's cheaper to get girls to pull wagons than horses.
