Gorgeous Day

Jutland Creek – Ridge, Maryland

From a brilliant winter day down on the water. Back when we owned our sailboat, I used to go down and check on it every month. Given that the commute to the boat could take as long as four hours when the traffic was bad, going down there was generally an all-day affair, even if the visit was for just checking the lines and making sure that it was secure. As a result, I always took my camera and wandered around looking for photo opportunities – and this was one of them.

Mooskas

Curious cows – Frederick, Maryland

Ever since I first watched the fantastic De Düva – the 1968 Oscar-nominated parody of Ingmar Bergman’s black and white film classic, The Seventh Seal – I have referred to cows as “mooskas”, just like Madeline Kahn‘s character (in her film debut!) at the 7:00 minute mark in the video below. We were required to watch both The Seventh Seal and De Düva in design school, but De Düva has stuck with me for far longer, simply because I laughed so hard at it.

Big Red

Red rooster – Farm in Pennsylvania

We spotted this handsome devil while driving somewhere through southern Pennsylvania many years ago. A classic scene for the area – a big proud red rooster atop a stone wall, daring all challengers to step up and go toe-to-toe with him.
