Having a beer with my little friend

He was under my table. He talked me into saving up to 15% on some great discount auto insurance. Share?

    A Day at Lake Eola and Fireworks!

    A few weeks ago I was re-reading Tony Northrup’s great DSLR guide, How to Create Stunning Digital Photography. In the section on night photography he discusses his technique for getting pictures of fireworks and I decided to try it this year. His method is simple; Manual program, set ISO to 200, aperture to 5.6, shutter to …

        Wood Stork

        Spent some time at the lake at the Orlando Fairgrounds watching wildlife.  The Wood Storks were content to stand nearby and splash in the shallows, but eventually took off for parts unknown.   Below: Splashing in the water   Below: Finally got camera shy and headed for quieter waters I’m sure Share?

              Mead Botanical Gardens

              Took a walk to the gardens while my car was being serviced this morning. Ran across a bird acting a bit strange. He landed and then fidgeted around a lot. After watching him a bit and zooming in I discovered that he apparently pushed his beak into some sort of material and is having difficulty …

                Wekiwa Springs State Park

                Took my camera and went to Wekiwa Springs State Park today. Walked all around the springs for a bit, then took off on a hiking trail to Sand Lake, a two mile walk. Ambled around the lake taking pictures and then returned to the swimming area. Although I didn’t activly start a Runkeeper session, my …

                  A Taste of Sanford

                  Went to the food and music festival A Taste of Sanford 2015 and got some nice photos. Lots of local food, great band playing and fun stuff for the whole family.  Even the local birds got a treat.   Another view of the same bird was captured against the sky, rendered in both color and …

                    Peacock at Magnolia Park

                      Unfortunately, although I followed him for about 30 minutes, he didn’t open his fantail.  He looks a bit scraggly so it may not have been that spectacular anyway. Share?
