If looks could kill!
How is it that my office desk is the epitome of clutter? My bedroom has greater comfort to me if it’s NOT organized. I do keep it pretty clean to keep peace in my home. Why then does a photograph with a lot of clutter bug me?
Sunday morning I was out west shooting birds. A red head duck resting on a tree limb just above the water made a good subject. Branches, weeds, moss, and junk was everywhere. I just couldn’t find “that” shot. Then I just let out a gut busting laugh. In the background of the shot was a giant bullfrog. I mean a huge guy. It’s legs would give a Kentucky Fried Chicken drumstick a run for it’s amount of meat on the bone. Getting the depth of field to have the duck and the frog in focus was a challenge. In the end it was a fun pic. But I hate all the clutter!!!!!
After several persistent requests I caved in. My grandson wanted to take pictures with my point and shoot Canon. Oh whoops…..yes I own a Canon. It’s the only point and shoot that shoots in RAW.
Anyway he followed me around and we had a crash course in photography. The above photo is his self-portrait. Note on the left his reflection in the bubbled glass. On the right is his silhouette. Pretty cool! Did I mention he is 5!!!!
Probably one of the worlds next greatest photographers.
