Early one evening a few days after the shoot with the goldfinch, I had a urge to take some photos. It was around 6:00PM and I went to the basement and got my camera, then went out into the back yard. I still had the monster 80-400mm telephoto zoom on the camera and opted to keep it on. Basically I was just to lazy too switch out with another lens and I really had nothing in mind for a subject.
I sat on the back steps for a bit hoping birds would show up at the birdbath but none did. Being impatient and having an itchy trigger finger I got up and started walking around looking for something in my backyard. It’s a small yard so the 80-400mm was overkill, but I did find some things.
The outer fringe of my rudbeckia forest.
More of the forest.
Basement window and flower pots. To me this has a still life vibe to it. But can large objects be used to create a still life composition? That question just generated another thought/question that has been on my mind.
I forget where, but I ran across this thought: can you shout the word “whisper”? I would think you can; I haven’t tried, but running it through in my mind it seems difficult. But then again it begs the question would there ever be a need to shout “whisper”?
Emerging purple coneflowers peering over the edge of the birdbath. They remind me of ostriches or llamas popping their heads up for a look at me.
More of the rudbeckia jungle.

Thank you for stopping by.
