Desperate to Shoot Something

Most of the birds are gone for the season – at least the ones I enjoy following. PLUS – Fort Pickens is closed due to the damage to the road from Hurricane Whats-his-name (oh, yeah – Nate).

So I haven’t posted lately.  But I’m told there are 72 of you out there who like and follow my site. So it’s time to post something!


This is the back of a house that sits in the 400 block of E. Intendencia in downtown. Every time I see it at this time of day I just love the interplay of shadows and trees enhancing the old architecture and simple lines of the house. So I grabbed this shot the other day with my iPhone.

And, a few days ago, needing a beach fix, I ended up with lunch at Land Shark, next door to Margaritaville on Pensacola Beach. I’m not supposed to have a Cheeseburger in Paradise, with fries and a big kosher pickle – nevermind the TWO Land Shark drafts I HAD to drink to wash it all down. But my desire to photograph birds got the best of me so I started baiting, and then snapping this absolute swarm of sparrows that flitted in and out of the place, looking for handouts or crumbs.

A couple of pieces from my bun, plus a french fry, and I had my own personal birdie dance taking place right on the corner of my table.


These are only two of the twenty or so that were gathering around me as soon as they discovered I had goodies to share.
