Golden Monday celebrated with the Pacific Golden Plover, such a pretty bird. Took this on my vacation in Kauai.
Hope you have a wonderful week!
I was walking the dogs this morning and I saw a deer! It just stared at me. I think it had the same thought as me. “Where’s my camera? I have to take a picture of this lady.”
I walk my dogs separately in the mornings because it’s just easier.
When I took Coco for her morning walk, we went back to the clearing where I saw the deer and there was another one! I know, I know, who cares it’s just a deer. They stand there looking at me wondering if they’ve been spotted or they’re taunting me because they know I don’t have my camera.
I walk back home, Coco wanted to run because she hates being wet and the drizzle was starting to turn to rain.
When I picked up my camera I realized that I needed to charge it. I should have done it last night! I’ll know for next time. I got my coffee ready to make while it did some charging. I was impatient so I grabbed my camera and walked out there in the rain with my camera. The deer were gone. No more pretty deer eyes staring at me. Ugh! Must get them another day!
It was coffee time anyway.
The sun was in the backyard with perfect lighting so I wanted to get some pictures of the dogs. Coco is not easy to get a picture of, she does her chihuahua thing of wandering around sniffing everything. Getting a good picture of her when she’s outside is pure luck.
I turn around and someone had nudged the sliding door open and was just staring at us. He knows he’s not allowed outside until I say so. He’s good about certain things and stealing things off the table is not one of them.
So it’s Rocky’s turn, oh but wait! The next door neighbor is walking his dog…we have to watch…and whimper as they walk by. Well I didn’t whimper, Rocky did the whimpering. Wouldn’t that be funny if we humans whimpered when people walked by? haha I make myself laugh.
Okay, they’re out of sight. Can you please look at me now? It was a bit of a struggle to get him to sit still. In the sun you can really see his brindle colouring.
But I finally got a great shot. Yay!
What a pretty boy. Then the sun crept lower and there was no more beautiful lighting. I love when the sun sets later. Pretty soon it will still be light out at 9pm and there will be fireflies and it will be magical. I love summer nights.
Have a great weekend!
I got the bug! Not this bug, but the bug to get a new lens! I have no idea what bug that is, all I know is I like the flowers blooming all around. Don’t tell me what kind of bug it is either, I prefer to live in denial when it comes to knowing which are harmless and which can wound me. As long as the bugs aren’t fast moving I’m okay.
So anyway, I really want to get myself a new lens. My choices are telephoto or macro. Or I can rent a lens until I really know what I want to put a chunk of money towards.
I took out my wide angle lens to take pictures. I really love taking pictures of sunrises and sunsets, but haven’t been doing that lately. I was too wrapped up into American Idol and Hell’s Kitchen. I have no idea when I started watching reality shows, I think they’re hard to avoid these days. I watched all of Ducky Dynasty in a two week period. Is that crazy? Or am I crazy for loving those crazy bearded men? Okay don’t answer that…
Back to my wide angle, I got a picture of Lucy. It’s not easy to get the wide angle right up in her face without her moving or swatting at the camera. I tried to take a picture of Coco, my chihuahua, but she apparently is running from the paparazzi, at least when it’s right in her face. I’m sure she’d get her bodyguard to take care of me if she was a starlet.
I took the wide angle lens out help me with my bug of buying a new lens. Do I want a new lens because I want a package at the door for me? Or do I really want to capture certain things around me. I would love to get a telephoto to take pictures of birds that are far away and the deer that appear at dusk. But I would also love to capture the detail of small things. Eventually I would like to own both telephoto and macro, I’m just not sure which I want first. I’m sure it will be a long time before I get the next lens.
Please feel free to comment. Tell me I’m crazy. Tell me I need to get a new lens. Tell me you’re addicted to reality shows. Tell me what you got the bug for.
Hope you’re having a great Friday! SO GLAD IT’S FRIDAY!!!
