Ragtag Daily Prompts: Happenstance

It was by mere happenstance…

Squirrel 3Squirrel 1Squirrel 2…that I was able to photograph this squirrel. I was in the kitchen making coffee when I spied the little fella feasting on some peanuts that I’d left as bait in the yard. It had slipped my mind that I’d begun leaving them bait. As fate would have it, my camera was sitting right on the kitchen counter. Even more astounding was the fact that it had a zoom lens. I snatched up the camera, opened the kitchen door that leads directly into the back yard. The rest is history.

I was born at the American Hospital in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France. I find inspiration in the lives of so many people from Joan of Arc to Oscar Wilde. While my primary avocation is photography, I also enjoy philosophy, theology and most of all, history. My beloved wife, Robin Anne Smith, who passed away in 2013 is an inspiration to me. My beloved partner, Dana is also a great support and inspiration to me. I'd be remiss if I did not mention my cats: Maxwell, Nigel, Pirouette and GarGar.
