The Rock and How the Birds Found It


This could have been a scene from The Perfect Storm but was actually taken at Laguna Beach.  This was back in 2008 when I started to take photography more seriously.  One thing I learned the hard way was that one should never change their lens while on the beach.  Being a complete digital novice, I did so with the wind gusting right on my face.  I realized later on that the dust bunnies have sneaked inside the camera when I was changing lens.  Finding the sensor as a warm toasty haven, the dust bunnies decided to settle there.  You may notice the shadows of these critters appearing in areas on the clouds.  I tried to clean them up but there is only so much one can do.  I shall declare them as "effects" as though they were intended to be there.

I suppose I am feeling much better so I decided to post again.  Lately, I've been noticing a lot of changes in me.  I used to be able to work on the yard for hours with no issues.  Now, I have to watched myself.  My latest mishap was a stern warning that I am not 18 years old anymore -- although I may still think like one.  Note to self:  "Life is too short.  The birds will take care of the yard."

Have a blessed weekend. - R

Photo Contest Update:  Right now, our entry is still hoovering at #27 among countless entries (the last time I counted it was close to 2200).  I'm positive that  we can be in the top 25 to make it to the Finals (March 29).

When you can remember, you can re-vote after 24 hours of your last vote.
