Rooser's Roost 001 Photo by Samuel E Warren Jr

Rooster’s Roost  Photo by Samuel E. Warren Jr.  This Rhode Island Red Rooster pecks at the soil of Leyte.  He is tethered to keep him from wandering on to the road or into the jungle.  But, it is the Rooster’s home, which is unique.  The Rooster’s Roost  looks like a contemporary piece of modern art or art deco farm equipment that reminds me of the old style deep sea diver’s helmet.  In reality, the Rooster’s Roost is an old tire that has been cut and pasted to create a unique personal shelter for the rooster.  I bought this tractor tire Rooster’s Roost at a small rubber tire recycling shop across the street from Citi Hardware in Tanauan back in February.  The Rooster’s Roost protects the rooster from rain and makes sure he gets plenty of air and sunlight at sunrise, so I never have to worry about my “alarm clock” having a “brown out” power outage or his double A battery going dead.  The Rhode Island Red’s greatest fear remains. . .Sunday dinner.  Photo by Samuel E. Warren Jr.

Old Style Deep Sea Diver’s Helmet ? Not ! – Rooster’s Roost – Photo by Samuel E. Warren Jr.

At first glance, this reminded me of the Old Style Deep Sea Diver’s Helmet that I have seen in books and movies.  But it is a recycled tire that serves as a Rooster’s Roost.  Photo by Samuel E.Warren Jr.

Poultry Palace – Rooster’s Roost – Photo by Samuel E. Warren Jr.

The Saldana Family of Leyte’s Philippine Alarm Clock never worries about a “brown out” power outage in the barangay or the local sari-sari store being out of fresh double A batteries.  The confident Rhode Island Red rooster struts his stuff in front of his poultry palace, which is an old recycled tractor tire, that provides the rooster shade from the sun and a roost from the rain.  Photo by Samuel E.

Nightie Night ! – Rooster’s Roost – Photo by Samuel E. Warren Jr.

Hey, Hollywood Movie Producers, here is your next inexpensive movie prop for that low budget sci-fi blockbuster ready for production.  This Rhode Island Red rooster is ready to rocket off to flame and glory aboard a NASA space shuttle and capture headlines as the “First Poultry Prince In Space” or rest on his roost in Leyte, in the Philippines sunshine.  Then, again, the Rhode Island Red never saw the movie, “The Astronaut Farmer,” so he want have to worry about NASA or the European Space Agency trying to make agriculture and astronomy work in a farming colony on the Moon or Mars anytime soon.  Photo by Samuel E.

    • Blog e foto,

      This appears to be a trackback link that will lead you to my “Rooster’s Roost” series of photos. I try to find article ideas and photos that all readers can relate to. I would hope American farmers and global farmers will get an idea or at least a smile from these photos.

    • Mr. Denny,

      Thank you for your compliment. I briefly visited your website. It is beautiful. You have some interesting photos. My wife, Christy has the passion to appreciate the flavors of wine.

      I’m a “Two Buck Chuck,” kind of guy. Actually, I’m a beer man, “Lone Star,” Miller High Life,” San Miguel,” and sometimes “Red Horse.”

      But, sometimes I treat myself to a cigar, and I enjoy a good pipe tobacco.

      I can tell by your photos that you are a serious photographer. You have some beautiful photographs on your website.

      The next time you have the urge to travel, allow me to suggest, “The P.I.”

      In the 1980s, La Union was a travel destination that tourists seem to enjoy because of what was hailed as great diving conditions for divers and underwater photographers. There are many religious sites and churches in the Philippines, If you are a history enthusiast, then, there are many World War II historical sites in the Philippines.

      Thank you for the compliment and keep up the good work on your website.

      Sam

    • Homepage,

      Thank you for the compliment on my “Rooster’s Roost” photos. I enjoy taking the camera and doing “Man On The Street” photography, even if some days I don’t get beyond my front yard. Visit my blog often and I’ll try to keep posting interesting articles and photos.

      Sam
