I'm adopting Rex, this beautiful Airedale puppy dog. We met online, through Northwest Airdale Rescue. It was love at first sight. We met in person/dog for the first time today (Tuesday Feb 5).
He is lucky to be alive. Lost for months in the mountains near Chico, California, starving and blind, he was rescued on Christmas Day. The man who saved him from the mountains and the mountain lions took him to Connie and Gordon Turner, aka Northwest Airedale Rescue, who are nursing him back into health.
We're giving him some time to get used to me and his new home over the next few weeks, and then he'll be with me for good.

I recently visited New Orleans, 2 years after Katrina. The devastation is shocking. I took photographs for four days, to document what I was seeing. This first group was shot from my 16th floor hotel room. The rising sun establishes direction. Canal street is visible in the 2nd shot. Beyond the red-hulled ship is the 9th Ward. The last two shots were taken in evening light. The curving Mississippi River in these scenes is the reason New Orleans is called the Crescent City.
Next: French Quarter in daylight.
