Last One Remaining

Even before the onset of winter most of the birds migrated to the warmer climes. And now the mourning pigeons and some sparrows are all that remain. I am dearly waiting for Spring to arrive and bring the birds back with it. But hold on! It is just December…four more months of bone-chilling winter still to brave. 😦

Hot Air Balloon Show

One sultry July evening we went for the Hot Air Balloon show in Levis Commons, Perrysburg, OH. I did not know that getting the hot air balloon airborne (as well as getting it on the ground) was such a team effort. Presented below are some of the photographs that I took that evening.
