“He liked the hens.  He liked their bobbing, pecking scurry and the old lady sort of attitude they took about their roosts.  He liked eggs too . . .”

    That wings-spread photo is pure essence of rooster. I love hearing roosters crow. There used to be one around here, somewhere, but it’s gone now: no doubt a victim of old age or the neighborhood association. Ah, well.

    Great photos and sketches!

    Oh, my goodness–what awesome photographs and painting’s. So glad i discovered this blog. Am homesick for Seattle/Renton. Am going to take my time looking your entire blog over…Love what i have seen so far. Am a graduate of Renton High–way too many moons ago–and i knew a Rosemary. Her father owned a Bowling Alley in the Highlands. Any way, i write–mostly poetry and am working on my first novel. Am Published. Have a real passion for all of the arts. Your blog is full of the things i love.
