The Unsuspecting Stalker

So I went on a photography shoot a while back on August 29th, 2008. It was a nice Friday afternoon and I decided to see what amazing shots I could get on ma “comra” (say it phonetically now!) Now, with any of my posts which include photography, I would be very very thankful for any constructive criticism that anyone with an opinion may give. I am an amatuer and I’m still learning so I will take whatever help I can get! Thanks! I went over to the park next to the campus and found some new Friends. They didn’t run away from me like some other friends try to do. They listened to me and cared about me…at least for a little while.

This is my little Bee Friend that I found. I was trying so hard to zoom in and find the little bees and there were so many that you’d think that it would BEE easy to take some pictures, but those little buggers don’t fly still. Dey BEE a Buzzin all over da place!

After stalking some bees for a while with my zoom lens, I traveled on down the path until I came to a creek. I looked up into the trees and found a little man in his home. What a sight to be seen! How strange it was! He looked comfy indeed. I wonder what thoughts goes through his head as he rests with his head poking out of his wittle home.

The little man surely has some beautiful scenery. I played around with the settings on my camera that I do not yet fully understand. I really like the look of the water and the shiny stick and rocks in this. The water is all flowing but the objects are clear and crisp!

After hanging around the creek I walked along the path along the river once more and crossed the Friendship Bridge to Julia Davis Park. There I found my Geese Friend. I know that he is one goose, but he is still my Geese Friend. There were two geeses. The other is my Goose Friend.

And this is my Goose Friend.

This is Duck Friend. Duck Friend didn’t realize he still had a feather on his beak. I’m rather fond of this picture and it might be the best out of all I took. I love how the reflection of the sky has turned the water blue instead of green like in other pictures.

This is Duck Friend’s Girl Friend. She is very gorgeous if I should say so myself. These two love birds (wocka wocka wocka) followed each other around the pond and it was rather adorable. I wonder what sweet nothings he quacks into her ear.

This little guy was “caught in the act”. You see…if I can get any animal successfully in an action shot I am very pleased with myself. The colors in this one just seemed right and so I do enjoy it quite much…yes…quite much.

These are the witnesses to my stalking. MINE! MINE! MINE! MINE! MINE!…I tried that when I was with them and they didn’t think I was at all humerous. I don’t know why…Finding Nemo gave these guys their 5 minutes (in my humble opinion, much longer) of fame. Gees.

Then I got shunned…so I went home.

Well, yall! Thanks for coming on this adventure with me taday!

God bless!

    Great pictures! I love going on photo safaris, too!

    I enjoyed reading over some of your thoughts–esp on the issue of Predestination.

    Thanks for making me smile! I’d been feeling rather downcast tonight until I stumbled upon your blog. Much to my delight, the last photo of the seagull with the caption beneath it made me laugh!
