In and Out

We take for granted certain things. They go in and out of of memory or field of view without a second thought, so we can easily miss something as interesting as this plant with its twists and twirls.

When talking about using soft focus, one photographer spoke of how things appeared to be dissolving. I prefer to think of it as a softening reality.

They come by their name honestly. A lady wouldn’t flee a camera would she?

I have taken a number of shots of these very well behaved ducks. For example, they know not go out into traffic which is only a sidewalk away.

A contemplative stance that impressed me. It could be my imagination but I would guess it’s looking for worms.


Flower in Black and White

Wonderful bush of flowers but the colour is overwhelming, and I was more interested in its shapes.

Hard bird to photograph, all those black feathers. They also have a temper and I didn’t want to test my luck by getting closer.
