Oshie's World

Life Through A Golden Eye

Month

April 2016

Day 17: Oshie

HE IS WATCHING! Oshie stares at everyone that walks, runs, bikes or drives past the house. Sometimes he even lays at the sliding glass door with his head through the blinds so he can watch everyone go by. It is funny when we come back from an outing and see his head poking through the blinds. What a goof!

Day 16: Double Crested Cormorant

The Cormorant is a very odd looking bird. I found this one lounging in the sun on a pylon at a marina. They have a somewhat prehistoric/pterodactyl look going for them which is more noticeable in flight or when their wings are spread in. The eyes are what drew my attention, the color is very interesting and unlike any other bird eye I have seen. From a distance you might mistake them for a duck floating in the water. Of course there are obvious physical differences but from a distance you can differentiate by noticing that they float much lower in the water. Cormorants are related to Boobies and are found all over North America. They eat fish and catch them by diving underwater.

Day 15: Stay Off The Dunes!

The two photos in today’s post were taken in January. The winter was very mild here in North Carolina and there were even a few days that were warm enough for a beach trip like this one. I definitely wouldn’t want to get in the water however Oshie didn’t seem to mind the chill at all. As long as he had the ball to chase he was happy! I was still using my Canon T5 and the Tamron 70-300 lens during this trip.

Just in case you didn’t already know his name.

Day 14: April Moon

I took this shot this morning when I took Oshie out to do his business. The sky wasn’t as dark as it appears in this image, but I like the way that this edit of the photo turned out. I was able to capture some good detail around the edges of the moon. I just wish I could zoom even closer.

Day 13: The Broad

I took this photo of The Broad a museum under construction in downtown Los Angeles last August. I love the architecture of the building but I hadn’t done anything with the photo yet. I processed it in black and white and color but I am not sure which one I like more. I will leave that decision up to you all. Taken with a Canon T5 and Canon 18-55mm kit lens and processed in Adobe Lightroom.

Day 12: Pelican

This image is probably a month or so old by now but I hadn’t done anything with it yet. This is from another trip to the Marina on New River Air Station. The lighting wasn’t great (bit too bright out) but I worked with it as best as I could. I really liked how the feathers on top of its head were wet and how the sun was illuminating that area.  Shot with my Canon 7Dmkii and the Canon 400mm f/5.6L lens I was renting at the time. Processed in Adobe Lightroom.

Chinese Bulldozer Battle Royale

So this definitely not something I would normally cover on here but when I saw this I thought it was too bizarre not to share. Apparently some rival construction companies in China were not happy with each other and as the video shows they took things to a ridiculous level and began a bulldozer battle the likes of which you have never seen.

It is a good thing that the street and sidewalk appear to be mostly empty because this was a very dangerous game to play. I am not sure how long it lasted or if anyone was injured. Definitely the strangest and stupidest thing I have ever seen. I thought road rage was bad in America. Sheesh! Here is the article.

Day 11: Eastern Tiger Swallowtail

Today’s image is of the commonly seen Eastern Tiger Swallowtail Butterfly. They are all over Eastern NC and many other places in the United States. Shot with my Canon 7dmkii and Tamron 70-300mm lens and processed in Adobe Lightroom.

Day 10: Oshie

Oshie was concentrating hard on Nancy as she was turning into the driveway. This is his go to stance and facial expression when he notices something but isn’t quite sure if he knows who or what it is. This was immediately followed by him sprinting over to the car so that he would be at her door as she opened it. Shot with my Canon 7d mkii and Tamron 70-300mm lens at 300mm.
