Birdwatching

Birdwatching

Here’s a favorite past time in our house. We have feeders in the back yard and really enjoy looking out the windows throughout the day to see who is paying us a visit. Miss J loves the idea of using binoculars to get a closer look. Louie often joins her at the window to do some birdwatching of his own.

As an aside, Lou is still hanging in there. The vet guessed he had about two weeks and that timeframe passed on Monday. The vet said he would be OK as long as he was eating and not showing signs of distress. He’s still eating. He seems to be sleeping more, but he’s not acting like he is in pain. Just taking it a day at a time.

I gave him this at the end of the session. I think it’s what he liked best that day:)

My five boys on a day out in Norwich, taken in the cloisters of Norwich Cathedral.
Technically rather tricky since it was quite dark. I rested the Lomo on the wall for a longer exposure.

My mothers hands. That have held me through the hardest moments of my life and applauded me at my best.

rite of passage (before)

rite of passage (before)

My first dropped lens…
…followed by the dreaded fEE error…
…and one clumsy moment had turned my fiddy into an overpriced prop.

But my recent run of bad luck must finally be turning. No sooner had I resolved myself to replacing yet another thing, then I looked down and spotted the tiniest speck of plastic. Hello Krazy Glue. Hello happy return of a functional ‘notch’. Goodbye fEE.

But not before letting the whole thing lead me in the direction of my 18-55mm and a higher vantage point for Me Again (aka MacGyver) Monday.
