365/Day 210

The Watering Hole ~~

They came and went very fast. And there I was, not very far, trying to be invisible while hand-holding a very heavy full-frame camera with a 300mm zoom lens! I know that’s not the way to photograph birds, but I’ve done it before with good results. Well, this time the resulting shots were kind of “meh,” but I am sticking with them. 🙂

Living Dangerously ~~

I sat in the garden for a while today hoping to catch some shots of birds, but they were  very elusive. I was about to go back inside when I spotted this little rascal at the top of the electricity pole outside the house. It also spotted me, of course. It kept staring at me for a while and suddenly took off, slowly at first, then so fast I could barely see it. You are living very dangerously, little one…

Venice Canal ~~

One of the entrances to the Venice Canal Historic District, in the Venice Beach section of Los Angeles. The district is noteworthy for its man-made canals built in 1905 by developer Abbot Kinney as part of his “Venice of America” plan. There are six canals in the Venice Canals Walkway and approximately three-hundred-and-seventy homes fronting them. I will do a post on the Canals Walkway soon.

Scenes From L.A.

Talking business on the phone, feet up, soft drink...

Business talk L.A. style. On the phone, feet up, health drink at hand, watching the sun go down…

School's out for summer!

School’s out for summer!

But some are still studying...

Studying? Writing a screenplay?

The women talk about dogs, guy watches sunset at Palisades Park in Sta. Monica.
