Boeing 747 Jumbo Jet

Boeing 747 Jumbo Jet A Boeing 747 is readied for another flight, with hand luggage on board. This is the plane that flew me to London Heathrow from San Francisco. I shot the photo through the plate glass of the departures lounge. It was converted to b/w and dodged/burned afterwards. The panoramic format works really […]

Six Apart Mark

Six Apart Mark Niall Kennedy drove myself and Mark Jaquith around on a small sight seeing tour of the local attractions in San Francisco after WordCamp last Saturday. A visit to the offices of Six Apart proved to be too good a thing to pass up so we posed for a few photos on their […]

46 stars and lots of stripes

46 stars and lots of stripes How long ago was the United States made up of 46 states? According to this site it was 1908! This flag may date back to that time because it was brought back from there by my grandfather in 1929 or the early 1930′s. I must say thanks to my […]

American Bald Eagle

American Bald Eagle This bird, the American Bald Eagle, took my breath away when I saw it at the zoo. He looked so majestic and dignified, despite the fact that he was surrounded by bars in a large enclosure. The shot is at the extreme end of the Canon 75-300mm zoom and it’s a little […]

White Owl

The Mean Look

The Mean Look Is this a buzzard? I really should have taken note of the signs near the enclosures! Moments after I took this photo he was thrown some raw meat and went at it with gusto. Pictured in the Lincoln Park Zoo, Chicago. Today is St. Patrick’s Day. It rained, it snowed, it was […]

Long Legged Bird

Long Legged Bird God help anyone who finds this picture through Google. I wonder what they were really looking for! Matt, any idea what kind of bird this is? Pictured in the aviary at Chicago’s Lincoln Park Zoo. In other news, I received an email from GE Health. My photo of a skateboarder is on […]

Jealousy

Jealousy Do animals feel emotion? Do they feel joy and sadness, regret and elation or even jealousy and envy? This little fella eyed the bigger mound next to him with what I’d swear was envy. Does anyone know what kind of animal he is? Pictured in Chicago’s Lincoln Park Zoo. Later.. if you wondered what […]

Grooming the Monkey

Grooming the Monkey When you’ve had a hard morning climbing branches and swinging from tree to tree, what better way to relax than have your mother run her fingers through your fur and pick out the ticks and insects. Pictured in Lincoln Park Zoo, Chicago.
