    Heron. There...no, wait, the heron were earlier.

    Geese. I'm pretty sure it was geese. They were bigger than ducks, definitely.

    Birds, big ol' birds that came and landed in the river behind us while we were shooting, just sailed right in, a good three dozen of 'em, just took our breath away, man.

    Rachel turned to look, she saw my expression and turned to see what caused it, and there was this entire flock on final approach. She turned back and giggled at the look of awe on my face.

    Yeah, sure, we were talking and shooting and Rachel was doing a great job and I was having a blast, first shoot, new face in front of the lens, getting to ask all the Getting To Know You questions, and she's an easygoing lady, asked as many as she was asked, lots of laughs and walking barefoot in a river that should not be walked in barefoot, and there was that group of three people a little ways away who were also taking photos, I could see a reflector and a camera and they sure were dressed up.

    Light was just right the whole time.


    But those birds, man. Yeah, I've seen weird, and I've seen lovely, but those birds...didn't turn my camera towards them, just soaked it up. Fan-fucking-tastic.

      As always Lou, it is that intimacy you are able to capture that just makes your photos so stunning.
