Get A Cookie
I was up with the birds, and the Trader Joe’s pie delivery, today.
My friendly neighbor,
and photography enthusiast, Margaret Miller, mentioned how handy it
would be to have 2 photographers at the duck crossing, down on Marina
Drive. While one threw cookie bits in the air, the other could be
snapping pictures of hovering birds.
What a grand idea
that turned out to be. Thank you Margaret. The flying birds were really
good at catching the cookie bits, and the walking birds were happy to
see the bits that fell on the earth.
It was a
great opportunity for me to learn more about using the new/used Lumix
FZ35, and it gave me the chance to be among the first, (if not the
first), to select a newly delivered Trader Joe’s apple pie before the
hordes of hungry pie shoppers had their way with the stack throughout
The Sundial Bridge is just off Marina Drive and always worth a photo stop.
There were plenty more birds to see there, on the water, and above.
a lot of fun, and I learned a bit more about how to get what I want
from the new/used camera. When we got back, I went to John’s violin shop
to try some test shots of the instruments. You can see some of them HERE.
in the day, I tried a few more experiments with the settings. I don’t
have to go far to find perfect subjects to photograph. The sun was
getting low. Light and shadow were providing excellent defining lines on
majestic Mount Shasta. An ideal photo opportunity.
What could be better?
Eating the pie?
Taking pictures of Lassen in the sunset?
Watching the president on TV giving the state of the union speech?
Or, enjoying a video about a drop of water?
