Week 35 – #9. Closely Cropped

This little bird was perched on a railing at Perico Preserve and kept a keen eye on me as I approached.  Although I used my Nikon 200-500mm lens, I still could not get close enough for a tight shot; therefore, I “closely cropped” the photo to get a closer look. I have just become interested in bird photography, bought a book on Florida birds and “believe” she is a female Indigo Bunting.  To my birder friends, I ask, “Am I correct?” She sure was tiny … and cute.9-closely-cropped-dsc_6867

Week 34 -#A4. Photographer’s Choice

Blue hour, my favorite time of day, provided me with this scene one evening as I was traveling to my office on Longboat Key. In addition to the lighting, the movement of traffic crossing the Ringling Bridge was a perfect “photographer’s choice” for a long exposure.

Week 33 – #41. The Night Sky

My friend, Susan, and I decided to do some Sarasota night photography a few weeks ago. Blue hour is one of my favorite times for photography and I was not disappointed with “the night sky” on this beautiful evening. I was thankful for the gentle breeze which created wispy movement in the clouds as they passed between the palm trees and moon.

Week 31 – #7. Bent or Twisted

This is the Atlas statue outside Rockefeller Center in New York City. It was sculpted by Lee Lawrie and Rene Paul Chambellan and installed in its present location in 1937. The statue is 45 feet tall, and includes a 15-foot figure of the Ancient Greek Titan Atlas holding the heavens on his shoulders. The North-South axis of the “bent or twisted” armillary sphere on his shoulders points towards the North Star as seen from New York City.
