Happy Birthday Dr King. You will always be remembered.
I did it! I got out of the house and went out shooting. I met up with fellow photographer and new friend, Tricia and headed to the DC. I wasn’t expecting much. The clouds were kinda meh and it was pretty cold out, but we headed over there anyways. We parked right by the Tidal Basin and from the car I could see all these birds just chillin on the ice. Literally chillin.
Tricia and I got out and were pretty excited about shooting the birds. Then all of the sudden they all started flying away. It was one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen. Just hundreds of birds going everywhere. I just kept on clicking and clicking hoping to get a good shot.
So I have to admit. I’ve been slacking a little on the picture taking. I dunno if it’s the cold air outside or the warmth of my bed that’s preventing me from getting out, but it’s gotta stop. Actually, I’m going out tonight with a new friend from the Arcanum. She’s in Laurie Rubin‘s cohort and am excited to get out there and shoot. It always makes it easier when you’re meeting up with someone.
This was taken last year in the winter time at sunrise.
As I was walking down the reflecting pool, I saw these ducks and thought that it was so cool that they were still in the reflecting pool swimming. They even had snow on their backs that they didn’t even seem to mind. Just kept on swimming along. So I set up my tripod really quickly and waiting for them to swim past me. And they would just keep swimming, just keep swimming.
