Fallen Hero

While the lights are shining on him,
they are now the heavenly lights.

So we stand in honor and salute the man,
this wonderful warrier, for a life well lived.

Rest in the peace without suffering.
What a life, what a man!

William E. Laxson
1943 - 2011

Bird Photography

This is as good as my bird photography gets. I just don't have the patience to stand around outside in the cold and wait for them to pose.

Ride the Rails

This abandoned rail car is located in the middle of a farmer's field, right where it was last used. There are still rail tracks, but they don't go anywhere. This car was interesting to me because it has a beveled glass window. What fun it would have been to ride through the countryside in this car.
