The Brown Pelican

I have always enjoyed watching pelicans at the beach. They are funny birds with big appetites. I never thought about these birds being coated in oil and fighting for their lives before the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Now, the images on the news are breaking my heart. There are some places were the large birds are coated with thick mucky oil. I don't think I will ever look at these birds as being funny again. I will look at them as survivors and as majestic.

I send special thanks to all the veterinarians and volunteers that are helping clean the animals affected by the oil spill.

05 20 2010 The Break of Dawn

While training at my new day job, I had the chance to work overnight for a week. In the mornings when I headed home there were some amazing sunrises. I would think about how many people don't get up in time to see the sunrise let alone go to bed with it. One day though, this particular sunrise caught my attention. I doubled back towards where I had left in search of a clear shot of it. I could not find such an area in the city, but I noticed the appealing lamp post. The combo worked out well and I was able to capture an image of the sun in all of its glory.

Go The Distance - Look to the horizon and see just how far you can go. That is what I think when I look at this photo. I got it by standing on a hill at the top of a housing development, looking toward the North.

05 17 2010 My Hydrangeas

I know summer is on the way when my hydrangeas start to bloom. This one will turn bright blue like the one flower already has when it is bloomed out. It is fun to photograph flowers and they can be great lighting and reflection subjects to practice on.
