More From The Archives

It is a dangerous thing to look back at old photos. I did that recently and found some more which may or may not have been used on this blog previously.Either way, they are just to good to leave hidden, in my opinion.I can say that unashamedly,because these were all taken by Jake,before the time of digital cameras.


Bambi looks alert and ready to run.


Mom and two fawns are out enjoying an evening stroll.


Another White-tailed dear.They all seem to be on high alert.


A patch of Dianthus in our garden.


The flower emblem of Manitoba,the Prairie Crocus blooms in early spring.They are not as abundant in the pastures as they once were.


Island Park in Portage La Prairie,Manitoba,used to have a wonderful display of tulips in spring.


I do not know where this picture was taken, maybe from a different angle at lake Minniwasta,but I do like it.

I am so thankful that I have all these pictures which Jake took.Many I know where he took them, but even the ones I don't, are still special.


Closing Thought:
You are not what has happened to you. 
You are what you choose to become.

  3. His photos are brilliant, in both meanings of the word. I have never seen or heard of Prairie Crocus. Looks like they may be bigger than the regular ones. The last picture is amazing! Also, how gorgeous the Bambi photo is!! Even beautiful surroundings and grass.

  5. Happy New year, Ruth! Jake took wonderful photos of the deer. They are very photogenic creatures. I enjoyed seeing the photo of the prairie crocus. I wonder why their numbers are in decline? I love the tulip garden and beautiful reflection in the last photo.

  9. The pictures are beautiful. I too like the one of the lake, and the deer are quite lovely. Ah, real film. How things have changed. My problem is never getting around to actually printing my good pictures. Instead they sit in folders on my computer. Ah well....

  10. Love these photos. The Prairie Crocus is one of my favorite flowers and this is a beautiful shot of them. We have them in the Bighorns, too and I always hope I can catch them when they're blooming. Jake was a great photographer, I imagine you have a special connection with him as you go through his images. Thanks for sharing, Ruth. Happy New Year, Diane
