Margaret (MargfromTassie) comes up with wonderful pictures for you.
These will make today’s Post and the next three Picture Parades. And there was me worrying about where I would find more Picture Parades!!
(Note that on the original Powerpoint images some of them had neat sayings as overlays. In the conversion from pps to jpg formats those were not carried across. I have them as introductions to each picture.)
MAN’s BEST FRIEND!
“A life without a dog is a mistake” – Karl Zuckmayer
“Women and cats will do what pleases them, dogs and men should relax and get used to the idea” – Robert A. Heinlein
“The love for animals, enhances the cultural level of the people.” – F. Salvochea
When you leave a dog behind because he “grew old”, your children will learn the lesson. Maybe they will do the same to you when you are an old man. Think about it….
“The dog has made man their God, if the dog was an atheist, it would be perfect” – Paul Valery
“Love is when your dog licks your face, even if you leave it alone the whole day” – Anita, 4 years old
“It doesn’t matter if an animal can reason. It matters only that it is capable of suffering and that is why I consider it my neighbor” – Albert Schweitzer
Why Being a Wildlife Photographer Is the Best Job in the World
These photographs were originally sent to me by Marg from Tasmania and they are just wonderful. Upon querying with Marg where they originally came from she found the source on a blog site called deMilked. That site explained:
You have to really love animals to go into nature photography. After all, it requires more patience to catch some deer in your lens than to photograph a mountain. Mountains don’t run away! Some animals don’t run either. In fact, some of them are really curious and come closer to check out the photographer. Quis custodiet ipsos custodes? Apparently, foxes and squirrels.
So here is the first batch of these gorgeous photographs.
I was waiting for a flight to London one day in January, a spare seat opposite me at the table in the lounge.
A middle-aged German woman asked to sit down. She was she stopping briefly in Dubai on her way back from Australia and it seemed from the conversation that her month long trip had been some sort of possible life changing experience. By her simple back pack and even her shoes I could tell she was an individual with character.
In the minutes that passed by she talked about Tasmania and how different life was there from the one she knew at home. I don’t recall exactly what I said to share the pleasure of her trip but did agree that it was possible to make major changes in one’s life; it obviously struck a chord.
Not so long after this brief meeting, I received an email. She had made those big changes and she sent me a picture that she took in Tasmania as a thank you.
You never know how sometimes people just need someone who can see that their dreams are possible!
