Photos of readers

Last September I did a reader’s photo feature on Divy Figueroa, who does veterinary care on exotic animals, and I’m devoting an unprecedented second feature to her because she’s recently sent me photos of one of her new patients. It’s the kitten of a Geoffroy’s cat (Leopardus geoffroyi), a small (house-cat sized) denizen of South […]

This is the penultimate submission in the tank, so by all means re-form the queue with your own submission. Yesterday’s post featured Steve Reiber, and today we have his wife Gayle. Steve wrote the text but the pictures are of Gayle (and friends): Gayle and I have visited Chiang Mai Thailand 3 times in the […]

We have but two readers left in the tank, so please send in your contribution, adhering to the style of this feature (2 photos max, preferably but not necessarily of you doing something in lockdown, and a caption). The Reader of the Day is Steve Rieber, whose wife, Gayle, will feature in tomorrow’s post. I’m […]

We have three in the queue now, so get yours in. Meet Karl Kramer, whose words are indented: As a retired scientist (USDA chemist and Kansas State University biochemist), I enjoy serving as an interpreter at the Flint Hills Discovery Center in Manhattan, Kansas (https://www.flinthillsdiscovery.org).  It is a rewarding way to help visitors to the […]

There’s one left in the tank after this, so bring out your photos (preferably 1 or 2, and preferably of you doing something in quarantine), and send them to Professor Ceiling Cat, FCS (for chrissake). Today’s reader is Sara Lackie, and her caption is indented: Today I did something that I haven’t been able to […]

We have one entry left after this, so I beseech readers to step up and send one or two photos and a caption. The Reader of the Day is Susan Hoffman, who contributed photos the other day. Now we have photos of her. (Her Miami University website is here.) When I saw the pictures from […]

Claudia Baker has put one entry into the “photos of readers” tank, and again I have no more. But I’m grateful to Claudia, and her photos and words are below. This is me and my daughter Emily when we spent a year in Iceland several years ago.  I was teaching at a high school in […]

Again, this entry empties the photo tank. Send in yours or I’ll shoot this cat! So, today’s reader is Barry Lyons, whose words are indented: I’m a writer and a freelance copy editor, and my work, such as it is these days, takes place in my small but not-too-cramped studio in the Upper West Side […]

This is the last photo in the tank, so this feature will have to stop, least temporarily, until readers submit their photos (limit two), with a brief description. Ideally they would show you doing something during lockdown, but it need not be that. Interesting photos of your life are fine.  If you have a cat, […]

I’ve learned from this feature not just about the huge diversity of interests of our readers, but also about how many of them are immensely talented in their avocations. And today’s reader, Doug Keck, is one of those. Here he is with some beautiful furniture. His words are indented: I have spent a lot of […]
