Attention: Photographers and Birders
I shoot birds — with a camera. Over the years, I’ve shot quite a few….
I consider my photographs as unique gifts. Generally, they are well received, if only because they are given freely as tokens of my appreciation, or to celebrate an occasion.
Who doesn’t like free stuff?
I’m writing this blog to tap into the community of photographers and birders – anyone interested in the incredible diversity and beauty of the bird world.
Shooting this energy while at the same time capturing personality attributes of birds produces photos that are captivating on so many levels. There appear to be so many similarities in the behaviors of humans and birds and I find this connection between my subjects and myself gratifying on a personal level. NOTE: I fully realize the quagmire I get into by using my profoundly imbedded human perspective to try to interpret relationships between birds and make comparisons between humans and birds……and I promise I will try to take a less anthropocentric view when discussing these relationships.
I have alot to learn about birds and photographing them…and I hope I have something to offer others who share my interests. Ann Lamott writes “just take it bird by bird”. That’s just what I intend to to.
So, are you ready for an adventure?
