Day 34: Cooling Off

Saturday afternoon was spent canoeing with Nancy, my brother Ethan, his roomate Scott and their dog Boston. Oshie and Boston seemed to enjoy watching us struggle with manuevering the canoes but they enjoyed the swimming even more.

Oshie loves the water but he has only ever been to the beach so he has never actually done any real swimming. He did well especially when we had the life jacket on him. When we took it off he struggled a bit but a few more trips to the river and he will be like a fish.

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 9: Monochrome

Today’s image is skyline shot from downtown Wilmington North Carolina. Kind of an Odd crop but I like the way it looks so I decided to keep it. Part of my growth as a photographer has been experimenting even if the results are not the best and also sharing those results to help build confidence in my skills.

Shot with my Canon 7d mkii and 50mm lens and processed in Adobe Lightroom.
