… everything happens at warp speed … the Osprey above has thrust up and forward with his legs, released his talons from the branch and has fully extended his wings as he lifts off and is reaching for air … perhaps a tenth of a second has elapsed from the decision to enter flight.
In the photo below a Great Egret has also made the choice to enter flight and we have him looking like a helicopter going straight up from the shore he was wading looking for food and he is perhaps a half a second into flight.
Work on the portfolio continues with 12,000 images finding their way into the bit bucket over the past couple of days … another 30,000 to go and maybe more. Also have started on the show at the Mary Fisher Theater the 25th and 26th of March and nearly done with a presentation I will be giving to five photography classes at Sedona Red Rock HS a week from Friday … really looking forward to that one. Although the weather can hardly be deemed true winter weather, I am taking advantage of it to stay in and work on all things photography and resume my gem cutting.
I uploaded the photos of Finley and One to a shared folder today … if you made a donation to help Finley, Michele will be sending you the link to download them. They are both 18 x 12 and will make a beautiful print for you. Update on Finley tomorrow. Donate to Finley The photo at the top of the page when you click this donate link, is the photo you can download regardless of what your donation is.
I am very far behind in answering your emails … sorry, and will be working on them tomorrow. I appreciate receiving your comments and try to answer everyone who writes to me.
Have a beautiful day today … the only one you have; all the others have already been lived and no guarantee for another one, so smile and make it good! Keep breathing and rejoice.
You are not poor if you
love something, someone,
humanity maybe, and have faith
that you will somewhere,
sometime be satisfied, though you
know not how.
