I went on a photo shoot Saturday with myself! After spending time taking what I thought were rather interesting photographs, when I got home from Cape May I decided to google photo clubs in my area and guess what? I really couldn't find any. So, I guess I will forever be a club of one with nobody to bounce ideas off of or to show me some "tricks of the trade". I am therefore left to my own devices. Today, I concentrate mostly on wildlife and landscape/seascape.
If it walks like a duck.......
These ducks live across the street from my friends' shore home all year round and I look forward to seeing them every year. See the tall white goose with the bigger lump at the top of his bill? That's "Trouble". When I first met Trouble many years ago, he was one of a gaggle (I think that's what a group of geese is called) of ten but every year the number is decreased and they are now down to just three. Every year I look for Trouble and am happy to see him. One of the neighbors appeared with food so he had their complete and undivided attention for about ten minutes.
I then had my husband drop me at the beach for a few very, very bitterly cold minutes. But, I found it very calming to be standing there facing the Atlantic ocean in all of its majesty all alone - I loved it but I just couldn't quite feel the shutter button too well due to numbness of my finger from the cold - needless to say, I didn't stand there too long.
Finally, one of the many photos I took of my husband and friends in the heart of Cape May, NJ. We enjoy each other's company very much and they were sad to see us have to leave a day early - it's nice to be missed.... I missed them, too, when we left but they live across the street and I can see them any time. However, here is something special about going away together and having one big PJ party with food and games.
