I stopped for gas and these very friendly fellows were waiting for their owner to take them bear hunting. They each had their collar-worn GPS units on and offered me lots of smooches and wiggly tails. We had two of these (Blue Tick Coon Hounds) when I was growing up that my dad used for hunting snowshoe rabbits at our camp. Midnight and Blue. It was a fitting name for Midnight, as that was when you might expect him to come home from a hunt, all scarred up from fighting coons as well. Very sweet and affectionate dogs, but relentless in pursuit of their prey.
I hunted without seeing a deer this morning in the chilly half rain/snow mix. Decided not to go out this evening as tomorrow is a work day. After two weeks of guests, Rauhallinen Farm is a quiet place again and Benny in his spot on the couch, where he can keep an eye on my while I type and read.
I developed three sheets of 4x5 HP5. Two shots of Hungarian Falls on the Dover Creek (upper and lower falls) and one of a rocky Lake Superior shoreline near Copper Harbor. Sheet film always scans very nicely and even pinhole work captures great amounts of detail.
