Eating Like A Bird

Although my friend’s flowers are no longer in their prime for photographs, her garden is still filled with tons of bird feeders which attracts a lot of, you guessed it, birds. I visited her this Thanksgiving weekend to bring her some pumpkin spice and truffle/pumpkin pies and since it was a warm and sunny afternoon, her garden was busy with little visitors. The 2 main birds, were the chickadee and the nuthatch but by the end of the day, the Blue Jay came out for a bit of dinner action. It was entertaining to watch to say the least. Since they are quite small and fast and I don’t have much experience with photographing moving things (Failed that part of my photography courses 10 years ago), it was rather challenging for me to get a good shot. I first tried with my tripod and remote then gave up and chased the birds on a sports setting instead.

The Hidden City

Morning fog over the city of Ottawa, Ontario.

โ€œShe awoke early to a thick fog and as she stared into the orange glow, she could see the Hidden City.
From her balcony she safely watched the Hidden City as the fog thickened around it and the sun rose higher in the sky.
Although the morning sun was now high in the sky, the fog continued to goย through the city, keeping it dormant.
Soon the rest of the people would awaken and the fog would dissipate, leaving her with a clear view of what the city tried to hide.โ€

Happy Thanksgiving!
