I am always trying to improve my photography skills and did not really have a subject in mind today. I decided to walk out towards the breakwater and then back along the beach. Being outside always inspires me and I just started shooting everything that caught my eye.
I really like to capture the simple things in an interesting way, an empty ferry landing, an upclose photo of a seaside telescope, and colorful shipping containers by the train tracks.
It can all be so interesting with a different perspective, kind of like life.
As I began walking along the shore, I heard a lot of bird comotion and then lots of birds started swirling overhead. I looked up just in time to see two birds dive in unison towards the water and engage in this scuffle.
Some of these are a bit blurry.
It was this shot that made me think I better keep shooting, somethings going on here.
The most important advice I have been given with regard to taking great photos is to just keep shooting. And never delete from the camera wait till you are at home when you can see your photos on a larger scale.
This all happened so fast. It was skilled and methodical.
Behold the hunt of the Seagull.
He surfaced with dinner, a red starfish.
It seemed to take him a few attempts to fly off with his catch of the day, I think he bounced back in the water at least three or four times.
And then he soared.
Ok, so I think that was totally cool except for the poor starfish.
So I thought I'd leave you with another lovely sight from this quick trip to the beach.
Two Canadian Geese. This reminds me of the movie On Golden Pond, I thinks it's the shining waters.
They were checking out the whole scene and I loved how they stayed so close together.
Happy weekend to you all.
I think this is cool that they are looking toward each other.
