I had more yard work to do, but I brought my DSLR this this time so I don’t have to rely on my camera phone. I lucked out, since the birds were feeling friendly. Normally they hang back at the tops of trees and close to the water, but today they stuck close enough to the road that I could get clear shots with my 24-70mm and 50mm.
Of course, I shot more than just the red-winged black birds.
And, because all of you just love toads:
I’m a frequent customer of Off The Wagon, a local toy/novelty/comic shop. It’s a fantastic little store that exudes so much visual appeal that I asked my friend on the staff if I could just photograph around for a while. She gave me the okay, so I spent a good chunk of yesterday just
playing with trains and dragons shooting in the store. I made it a point not to make a nuisance of myself, so I shot around customers, and tried to touch the displays as little as possible. I am so grateful to have had the opportunity, and I cannot stress enough how absolutely amazing this place is. If you ever find yourself in downtown Kent, make stopping at Off The Wagon a priority.
