M.I.A. and Canadian Geese
MIA. Who? Me? I have been a bad, bad blogger and photographer as of late. I was secretly hoping that no one would notice. Well, not so. I actually got a message from someone who ‘follows’ Keeping Up With Carol, and she said that she just wanted to make sure that everything was ok – that she hadn’t ‘read’ anything from me lately. Well, in truth, it’s nice to know someone noticed my absence. 🙂
I’m ok. I have just been extremely busy. While I am building my photography business in my new town, I decided to take a per diem (as needed/to fill in for open shifts) position at a local business. Things will settle down with that, but at the moment, I’ve been quite busy with training. QUITE busy. On top of that, I was pretty positive that I wouldn’t catch the cold that everyone has – but I did. I have also recently combined my old Blogspot blog with my new WordPress blog. I was very excited that the images and text could be imported, BUT the keywords need/needed to be redone, AND when I changed website hosts, the images that were linked to my blog were ‘lost’. I now am in the process of adding them back in. So, if you notice a post with a large box and a red x in the upper left corner, that’s a post that I haven’t had a chance to correct yet.
Happily, I was able to get a shoot in last weekend (post to follow) and on the way home that day, I was even able to stop to photograph some geese that I’ve been wanting to capture. Coming from Florida, I just get a kick out of seeing birds actually sitting/standing/walking on the frozen lakes/ponds/streams. Even though the shoot had taken a lot out of me (not feeling well), I decided what better time than the present?!
This is the sight that I saw on several occasions that made me want to pull my camera out:
I call this shot, The Shunning (well, it would be except for the individual who doesn’t believe in following the pack):
And this one is titled, Blue:
I promise to get back in the saddle soon, and my next post will be from a really fun photo shoot I did.
