CAFE SCENE (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

I haven’t done much people photography or taken many city scenes, things I want to do more of when the weather turns more agreeable. I do love nature photography but the urban landscape is very interesting as well. This photo was taken from across the street, with a wide angle lens, If these two gentlemen had seen me I might have smiled and sought their compliance, as it happened they were too deep in conversation to glance in my direction.

LANEWAY (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

I enjoy turning off a city street when I notice a laneway. A few of the city’s older commercial/residential neighbourhoods have some interesting lanes to explore. The chair under the No Parking sign looked out of place in this setting. Perhaps it was placed there years ago but it looked as though it was still used by someone…

PATIENCE

I can’t resist a shot like this. Every dog seems to strike the same pose when waiting for its owner to emerge from a shop. It sits and stares towards the shop with a singular concentration. A bit expectant, a bit anxious and full of longing.

TO BEE OR NOT TO BEE (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

I’m not sure if this is a bee or a bee mimic, perhaps someone might be able to confirm which it is. It was a three-fer day: summer, flowers and insects. The photo was taken hand held with my 300mm lens. I had planned on taking bird photos but I saw this opportunity and gave it a try. I usually only take one lens with me when I leave the house (I hate carrying a lot of equipment). You can get some nice close-up shots with long lenses too.

WILD THINGS (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

Time for a little flower power. We’re supposed to see a warming trend at the end of the week and I hope to get out with my camera. The weather has just been too cold for my camera and I can’t take photos wearing heavy mittens😏. Until then…

CHICKADEE (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

The chickadee is another all-weather bird here in our forests. To survive the cold winters they remain in flocks to search for food. These flocks are known collectively as a banditry of chickadees, which makes sense as they appear to be wearing masks. They are fearless and adaptable little birds, always a pleasure to see and hear on the trails.

SPRING COTTONTAIL (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

We came upon this cottontail in a less travelled area of the park. They usually freeze in place when they see us (which this one did) or run away. The rabbit must have been pretty pleased with this patch of grass because he held his ground. We took a few photographs and then left him to his lunch.
