Some Inspiration

Nature always provides amazing inspiration. Sitting by the water surrounded by trees gets the creative juices flowing. Seeing images of waterfalls, landscapes and animals is awe inspiring. I like going to the park and relaxing by the water. Sometimes, I read or write. Other times, I stare at the scene and take pictures. Since it's warm out and it doesn't get dark til 9, I've gotten into the habit of going to park nearly every evening. I always take my camera with me. Here are some pics for your inspiration.


I had pointed my camera at an animal hole. As soon as I did, this guy popped out.

I've been practicing getting pics of birds in flight. I've got the hang of it now. Takes a lot of patience. Still trying to figure out how to take it so the wings aren't blurry. 


Yeah, this is my view. See what I mean by inspiring. The first picture is my favorite place to write. 


Around 7:30, the bandits come out.

Sometimes, I can't believe this is New York. Cities are like people. You can't judge them based on some stereotype. They have many different aspects to them.

A swan family lives in the park. Seeing the kids reminds me of The Ugly Duckling. It's amazing how those little ones turn into beautiful swans. They look kinda mangy. I didn't know swans hissed until someone got to close to the babies. One of the most vicious sounds I've ever heard.


When taking pictures of animals, I usually do continuous shooting. Don't want to miss anything. I decided to turn a series of them into a gif.

I threw this one in just for fun.
