Member Voice - Birds

Jan. 15 - "Birds (Real & Otherwise)"
by Scritor Senex

Whilst visiting some of the town bloggers, I had noticed that photographing birds in the garden was a popular pastime so my first thought was to suggest a subject of garden birds. But then I realised that not everyone has the equipment to photograph the real things.
That made me look out for alternatives and I noticed sculptures, posters, little models and various other things with birds on them so I hope that your town will prove equally
productive and am really looking forward to seeing your birds (real or otherwise).
All the best,
Scriptor Senex

  4. I am excited for this one - there is a slow river behind us and today, on my run, I passed a crane about 4 yards from me - all I could think was "I wish I had my camera with my zoom lens!"

    Great topic!

  5. Hey I recognize that bit of Bruges.
    I've got plenty of birds on file, though they're pretty scarce in person this week. An archive shoot, and the difficulty is choosing only a handful!
