Up until recently I just had my camera handy near the back door in case Humphrey came along to feed. In an effort to elevate my photography, I started to light my Humphrey shots. Well of course when I set up my scene he never comes or decides to go elsewhere in the yard.
Well after days of waiting & pacing I think I finally have the shot. I’m having this printed & mounted.Start Slide Show with PicLens Lite
Ok the long awaited day has come Blondie has 9 new ducklings. Let’s see how long they last.
Uh they lasted 2 days.Start Slide Show with PicLens Lite
The female ducks are eating furiously, which only means they will be giving us little duckies soon. This brings me joy, but what pi$$es off is when their food is being stolen by evil renegade squirrels.Start Slide Show with PicLens Lite
Someone likes it over here. Guess we have better sashimi, less traffic, better schools & lower taxes than that other lagoon.Start Slide Show with PicLens Lite
Last night I heard there was going to be a fireworks display after the game. It took almost an hour for the action to start. My little G1X2 did alright. Unfortunately they all pretty much look the same. So I’ll just post this.Start Slide Show with PicLens Lite
Apparently this side of the lagoon has the best fishing spot. The Great Blue Heron has been back everyday now. So the story unfolds as a rambunctious cormorant tries to push his way onto the spot. What follows is a very tense slow motion dance of body language, defiance and threats. To escalate things the cormorant shows ultimate disrespect to the GBH. This in turn is the crossing the line and the cormorant is cast off the best fishing spot. Sorry for the disgusting photos but I couldn’t stop laughing as this was happening.Start Slide Show with PicLens Lite
This morning I saw a Great Blue Heron in the lagoon so I grabbed my camera and tried to get close enough for a photo. Well it must have gotten comfortable with me (they usually fly away) because it got close enough for me to get a few really tight head shots. That took about an hour by the way.
Of course I was being watched… I’ll deal with him later.Start Slide Show with PicLens Lite
I’m trying to keep busy since Sandy is in the Philippines, so tonight I went to the Rhythmix Island Arts to watch: Lumago Lampas. I got permission to bring my camera sans flash. I’ve never been to the space so I had no idea what to expect. The colored spotlights drove me nuts. I finally settled in on ISO 6400 with a 5omm f1.4 lens.Start Slide Show with PicLens Lite
Sand Castle Competition at Robert Crown Memorial State Beach. Unfortunately these things usually happen at the worst time with regard to lighting. Don’t they know?Start Slide Show with PicLens Lite
Seems like I do this every few years. Just love those lights! It’s a nice test for my new G1X2 as well.Start Slide Show with PicLens Lite
