Barns on Walt's 300 acre farm. This part of New York State offers good bottomland and wide open fields, great for farming and rabbits.
I follow Walt around a small, wooded patch that provides good rabbit cover.
Tom's beagle, Bernadette, headed out to a hedgerow. You can see part of her GPS tracking system that goes around her collar.
A happy but very cold Walt. It was 15 degrees with a stiff wind.
Here is Tom, President of The Old Rabbit Hunter's Association. He knows more about rabbit hunting than just about anyone.
PARIS IN THE SNOW
Every café has an automatic citrus juicer—freshly squeezed OJ along with your Café Creme.
A rare sight—Paris in the snow.
Paris still has old bookstores that sell old magazines as well.
A cold, wintry street in January in Paris. The perfect time to enjoy a warm bowl of couscous and a bottle of wine.
The bicycles of Paris are still charging, even in the snow.
Even in the snow, you can purchase fresh fruit and vegetables all over Paris.
Fun, local place for couscous. Great crowd and good food.
A Grimbergen Weissbier makes a nice late afternoon aperitif.
The outside of Rose Bakery in Le Marais. A must stop for lunch or breakfast.
You won't see this too often in Paris.
The pastry offerings at Chez Omar. My favorite pastry was the pistachio-flavored pastry in the foreground.
Place de Vosges on a late Sunday afternoon in the snow.
Iconic view of the Seine photographed using an "illustration" filter on the camera.
A store window in Paris with stuffed animals. (They claim that all of the animals die a natural death in a zoo!)
A lively bird!
The Assiette de Legume from Rose Bakery.
The Cod in a Caper Beurre Blanc at Cinq Mars. Excellent!
The pastries at Rose Bakery (photographed in illustration mode).
The best street hustler I have ever met was working the 7th near Place Pigalle. He started a conversation using this miniature sheep and then ended up trying to sell me $20 of cheap candy. This guy could sell ice to Eskimos.
A cappuccino at Télescope. Best coffee in Paris.
The only thing at Grand Vefour that was really worth eating. (Orange tart with a soft lime meringue topping.) The pastry chef was brilliant but, unfortunately, the rest of the food was mediocre.
These simple custard tarts are Portuguese and served at both locations of Da Rosa.
