It’s Sunday morning. The temperature is cool. There is nice breeze, and we are a bit tired of packing up our condo. So, we grabbed our cameras and headed out for a walk at a couple of spots in Sudbury, MA. We wanted to shoot (that is, photograph) critters, specifically turtles, but we were open to whatever crossed our path.
In Africa we did big game shooting. We would shoot lions, elephants, and buffalo. A nice photo of a lion in action will always captivate the imagination. But in Sudbury the critters are more benign. How about a Robin sitting in a bush? Yawn. Since Sudbury could not offer lions in action, I settled for the warm fuzziness of geese with their goslings – pulling at your heartstrings.
Done with the feel-good geese, we stumbled across a few snakes. In Arizona where we have the Diamondback and Mohave Rattlers, snakes can be active and very dangerous. Again Sudbury has a lot less to offer. The only snakes we came across was the docile water snake. Again, yawn.
Alright, safari this is not, but the the photography is still a lot of fun. Finally, a few turtles to complete the day.
And remember, it’s all about the light.
