I look and don’t see.

Here I am reaching for Big Foot to appear when in reality if he were to show he’d have to knock me up side the head in order for me to see him. But the cameras would be ready for anything, I will be as well except being faced in the wrong direction; looking for my coffee.

i use the Vultures as props.

I take a lot of pictures of them and Seagulls for two reasons. First they are always around making a really good photo an actual possibility.

In the end I will end up with an understanding of a few more skills I need to practice. Or in the case of shooting RAW merely changing settings on the camera.

Opportunity knocks; the door creaks open.

I have one picture on display at a State Park visitors center near me, all I did was read the rules, conform to them and my Picture was accepted. I am one of about 100, no others from our Island which is disappointing as there are several photographers here that are very talented.
