The quieter you become the more you can hear.
I start this post with a thought,because this thought reminds me of my husband,
He was a quiet man,few words,but a deep thinker.
A while back I did a series of posts using Jake's slide scans,
Because he is no longer taking pictures,I want to honour his memory by posting more of his work.
This post contains the last pictures he ever took.
I share them with you as a way of keeping his memory alive.
The Bald Eagle is always a bird that is a desired photo subject.
On this day we saw only this one,and he was not willing to pose,yet Jake captured this image as he flew away.
These pictures were taken on September 4,2010.
The roadside ditch had these purple Asters growing in profusion.
I do not know what type of moth this is,but Jake and I found them to be quite beautiful.
The following picture was the last one Jake took.
The shutter was triggered on September 12,2010.
At the time we did not think that this was to be our last photography session together.
The Great Blue Heron was sitting at a small pond just off the road.Of course as soon as we had stopped he took off.
Jake managed just one picture and this is it.
This one is SOOC.
The memories live on and I hope to share more of Jake's work on this blog.
