Onslow and Daisy. Onslow is a rescue from the Woodford Human Society. Although one of my requirements was that my new cat would be okay around dogs, I was afraid he would be scared of Daisy. When I brought him home and let him out of the carrier, he immediately went up to Daisy and rubbed on her, purring. Well that was settled right away.
Daisy was a little taken aback with his forwardness. It had been a while since she was around a cat that showed any affection toward her (my other cat just hates life and everyone in it). Now, they greet each other, hang out together, and even sleep together at night.

Making lemonade out of lemons in downtown Lexington, KY.
The pathetic story of these cranes goes back over 5 years when some misguided developers bought up and tore down a historic city block downtown with the grand notion of building a boring skyscraper. Because of years of financial and government foibles, a large pit sits with these idle cranes. For how long? One only knows.
The high winds of spring make the cranes swing around. I’d like to see them get in a sword fight! Now that would be a downtown attraction.
On the grounds of the Henry Clay estate (Ashland) in Lexington, many trees are hundreds of years old. This first one has suffered from damage, but still is living. It almost looks like a monster glaring down. I think the second one looks like an elephant. They should have a circus come to town and have it here.
Shot on the massive Soligor 500mm F8 mirror lens on my Canon T-90. Not the best picture of a bird, but notice that the background doesn’t have those out-of-focus rings that are characteristic of mirror lenses. It seems straight lines minimize the effect. I actually don’t mind the rings in some shots, but other times it distracts from the subject.
