Some days one is prone to wonder if there is any intelligent life on the planet at all.
I can’t say this this week’s photos are particularly inspiring. Perhaps that is due to the fact I wasn’t feeling particularly inspired. Not that I didn’t try. It was still fairly early when I arrived at the Eagle Creek Marina one morning, hoping to at least catch some wildlife in action. Nothing seemed to be overly cooperative, though. Even the starlings kept themselves backlit so their portraits turned out too dark to salvage reasonably. Trying to chase a cardinal through the trees was wholly frustrating.
Patience is necessary for trips like this, though, and time was a luxury not afforded to me this particular morning. I had but 45 minutes before I needed to be on my way. Thoughts of stopping back by another day were interrupted by necessary tasks needing completion prior to Kat leaving for the salon.
Our need to still stay distant from others is proving frustrating. I’ve booked a shoot for a couple of weeks out with someone new doing something different. The concept is one that demands I shoot from some distance. I have no idea how well it might work. Such a different approach has me re-examining why I shoot.
For the moment, however, there are these eight images. At least the squirrel seemed mildly amused.
