Set 2 of My All Time Favorite Photographs
Bob Jensen at Trinity University 

 

Among the thousands of photographs that I've taken over the years I have some all time favorites.
This is Set 2 of my all time favorites. They're not in rank order.

Erika standing on our lift (elevator)

This was the circular stairs we replaced with an elevator
I don't know how I previously got through life without a home elevator and a bucket loader on my tractor

Daughter Lisl, Bob, and Erika
Guess which one made the most trips to the punch bowl?

Lisl's son CJ awing over his grandfather's bookkeeping  trophies (Yeah right)

Wild turkeys looking inside at the bookkeeper at work

Moon over Vermont as seen from our back bedroom

Here are some pictures with the camera aimed toward the White Mountains in the east

Hawk watchers sit in our front yard for moments like this

Clouds over Franconia Notch (about 10 miles distant)

Clouds over Franconia Notch (camera zoomed)

This is part of the Omega Hiking trail on nearby Cannon Mountain
You won't catch me climbing that

Rare sighting of a Fisher Cat
Their occasional unnerving screams in our woods sound just like a woman screaming in terror
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fishercat

Not-so-rare sighting of bear cubs in a dumpster

 


in May 2007 a hungry bear this size wiped out three birdfeeders on our back deck
Turns out that bird seed is just about their favorite food apart from honey and acorns
Purportedly they're more likely to wander out from the woods following a bad acorn year

The highest peak is Mt. Washington

 

Marshall and I took this historic Cog Railroad trip up to the top of Mt. Washington in 2012
The engine pushes the car upward on the cog rail between the two outer rails
Pictures of our ride up are available at

Out neighbor's white Arab mare

Colorful Ore Hill as seen from my desk
At one time iron ore was taken from this hill and hauled on mules to make fine Franconia Stoves

Springtime on the back of our cottage

My son Marshall took this picture of a hummingbird by our side door
They are so tiny and so quick
We had a nest of them in 2012 in the nearby lilac bush

 

View from our yard south toward our wildflower field

This is the golf course as viewed toward our wildflower field and woods

Some ducks on the golf course

This is a small chapel about a half mile down the road
The chapel is only open for two months in the summer season

 

Erika has dolls all over the house
We purchased the sheepskins years ago when I lectured in New Zealand

Happy New Year


The two historic pictures below were forwarded to me by former B29 pilot and good friend Col. Booth

German Wehrmacht General Anton Dostler is tied to a stake before his execution by a firing squad in a stockade in Aversa, Italy, on December 1, 1945. The General, Commander of the 75th Army Corps, was sentenced to death by an United States Military Commission in Rome for having ordered the shooting of 15 unarmed American prisoners of war, in La Spezia, Italy, on March 26, 1944. (AP Photo)
These days he would probably be confined to Gitmo for 20 years

 

Many of Germany's captured new and experimental aircraft were displayed in an exhibition as part of London's Thanksgiving week on September 14, 1945. Among the aircraft are a number of jet and rocket propelled planes. Here, a side view of the Heinkel He-162 "Volksjaeger", propelled by a turbo-jet unit mounted above the fuselage, in Hyde park, in London. (AP Photo)

On May 14, 2006 I retired from Trinity University after a long and wonderful career as an accounting professor in four universities. I was generously granted "Emeritus" status by the Trustees of Trinity University. My wife and I now live in a cottage in the White Mountains of New Hampshire ---
