  1. Some of these don't look like photographs but more like paintings. Must be because they were colored by hand. They did that quite often then. Nice collection, John.

  2. What a great collection. I love the bears standing up and especially the photo of the bison.

  3. Oh, these are marvelous, John! I especially love the buffalo head portrait, bighorn mountain sheep and standing bear. The background scenery depicted is beautiful as well. I hope to see all of these wonderful animals when we take a trip out to Yellowstone at the end of the summer. As always, your collections are stellar!

    I hope your are having a wonderful summer season in Seattle, John!
