Donkeys/ Camera Critters

It was a misty evening not long before sunset, when my husband happened upon this field with three donkeys.

The white donkey was totally unimpressed with me, too busy eating hay. The black donkey turned it's back on me. But the tan donkey thought I was fascinating. Its eyes followed me wherever I went.

With Halloween only a few days away, it feels appropriate to post these headless pumpkin dogs. The one on the left seems ready to play, don't you think?

I have never seen a purplish cast on a photo before. It reminds me of color film when it first came out and appeared in Japan. Kodak film gave a blueish cast to photo prints while Fuji gave a greenish cast to photo prints. I don't have a clue who made purplish. It gives an ethereal quality to the picture.

Today (October 25th) in my birthday. I am 74 years old.

Donkeys are my favorite barnyard animal. I have had 3 in the past, and they are just so sweet and smart.
I'm wondering if these pumpkin dogs did have heads, or will they be getting any ?
Have a great week-end.

see you there! said...

When I first saw the pumpkins I thought you were going to say they were donkey's in the making, LOL!

Maybe the donkey thought you looked suspicious! Love those pumpkins but they look more like football players to me.

Nice photos, the donkeys are so cute - but those pumpkin structures were something else! That is so neat!

Love the pumpkin dogs.

Donkeys are so funny to watch. We had several in the field next to our house but every time I tried to get a pic they were completely uninterested and showed me their backside instead of posing nicely.

I thought the donkey photo was really cute; then I saw the pumpkin dogs. :-) I've never seen anything like that before. An original idea, for sure.

Hoho, my first time to see pumpkin sculpture! The donkeys are wonderful. My favorite animal.
And you found a white one! Jewish tradition has it that the messiah will enter the gate of Jerusalem on a white donkey.

Very superior looking donkeys - look rather like mules to me. Very well looked after.

I love the donkeys. The tan one must have thought he was a model.

I love the headless pumpkin dogs. Very clever.

Louise said...

I love donkeys! The headless dogs are hilarious. Someone must have had some extra time on his/her hands!
