Found him in a different spot today. He was standing about 50 yards away from me, and then was kind enough to take off and land on the deck about 20 yards further down. I was thrilled! ;)
although I feel that I still have a lot to learn when it comes to the Hipstamatic Multiple Exposure Kit...
I am constantly amazed at some of the images it creates. this image is 100% pure Hipsta and just wows me at how delicate the layers are... like an intricate and fiercely complicated mechanical drawing.
And to finish it up, the HDR pano extravaganza. What used to take an hour to tonemap stitch and process on the old computer is kid stuff now. So bring on the panos! (though I may send them to Don or Victor for content aware fill...)
My mini vacation starts NOW, so I'll leave you with this for a few days. I hope to return with a few good shots and a few more laugh lines. Who cares about wrinkles when you get them from laughing maniacally at your own good fortune?
This week's upload is a day early however I couldn't help myself because when I woke up this morning, the perfect opportunity had risen for this week's photo.
As much as I dislike the winter months, they make great photo opportunities. It was a cold, misty morning and my work location could not be more ideal. It was beautifully sunny and I walked up and down the fields taking photos of the mist sitting long along the ground. Then, the moment I wasn't expecting arrive and a flock of black birds took flight, creating a photograph that I had never expected to capture.
For a while I have hoped to capture a misty landscape for project 52, except they only come at certain times of the year, and with only 6 weeks left to go now, I was starting to worry I was going to lose my chance.
All in all, I'm impressed with this shot this week, and I hope you all enjoy it.
All feedback, favourites, views and comments are appreciated. Thank you.
Yesterday, he flew right towards me, landed about 15 feet away, ate his lunch, stared at me for a while and then flew away. He's getting braver. More pics below.

Craig and I decided to get out of Auckland for the weekend...
And ended up in Whangarei...
About a 2.5 hour drive North of Auckland.
On Saturday night we spotted this sign...
For a 3 hour harbour cruise to Matakohe - Historic Limestone Island
Leaving at 11am Sunday morning...
A perfect way to spend Sunday we thought!
Relaxing on a boat in the harbour...
The Island is very small, but was incredibly interesting...
We only had @ 45mins to have a quick explore of the ruins etc...
We ended up being the ONLY ONES on the cruise...
So we didn't want to hold the owner and his skipper up.
We felt a bit guilty that they didn't have anyone else...
But they were still more than happy to go...
And were incredibly friendly and hospitable!
So all in all we had a really wonderful day!
Will have to go back again sometime! %-)

"Salute to a fallen comrade." Memorial Day 2008. Willamette National Cemetery. (Vivitar Series 1 200mm f/3.5AF - Kodak Portra 800, @ 640).
Fast forward exactly one year after making this snap. I've found the soldier in it. By chance, I ran into one of his military buddies, volunteering at the National Cemetery on Memorial Day 2009. He immediately recognized the soldier, and gave me his name and phone #. I'll be giving him a metallic print of this scene. The Willamette National Cemetery now has a large one for their permanent display too.
The Soldiers response upon receiving the picture:
Thank you very much for the picture.
That day at the cemetery was the first time since arriving home in March
2005, that I had come to see my friend. I had made other attempts to go see
David's plot, I had even been to the cemetery previously to bury some
comrades ... But this was the first time that I had enough courage to go and
see my friend. His name was Staff Sergeant David Weisenburg, he was killed
in Taji, Iraq during the summer of 2004. We had been in the Oregon Guard
together for about 5 years. He was a good friend.
I'm attaching a speech that I gave last year at a memorial dedication for
David and one other Soldier, that briefly talks about David. Perhaps it will
give you a little insight as to what kind of man my friend was.
Thank you again for taking the time to look me up and send me this picture,
this means a great deal to me.

Water & Light (46/52) this is not the theme for week 46 but I just had so much fun with this today :-) I am using it for this weeks image :-)
Just noticed that it is quite a bit darker than it was before I uploaded it - not sure why this is - does anyone know why this has happened?
Cleaning out files tonight, and came across this red daisy. Haven't shot the last couple of days because of crummy weather. Hopefully, tomorrow will be better.
i'm working a lot.
i'm headed for burning out.
i don't know if i want to continue with photography. i've been feeling like this for a really long time and it honestly kills me. i need to find a way to make my photos mean something to me again... to make photography fun again.
my bedroom window has these water lines running down it every morning. it's so beautiful. i want to capture beautiful things, quiet things, things that not everyone notices. i feel like since coming home from SCAD, all i've been doing is sitting around. i haven't done anything interesting photographically in a very long time and i want to change that but i don't know how.
i'm stuck. i don't know what to do anymore.

Week 46 of 52 of 2014. The theme is TILT SHIFT EFFECT. The fall colors are peaking in Gainesville, GA this weekend, but with the unusual cold we're having, they won't last very long. See the entire 52 of 2014 set at www.flickr.com/photos/thesussman/sets/72157639288997073/
"7 Days of Shooting" "Week #46" "Library Days and/or Books" "Focus Friday"
A 'waka' is a form of Japanese poetry (different from haiku). This one was composed by Lady Kasa and translated by Harold Wright. It goes:
Like the crane that cries
merely to be heard afar
in the dark of night
Must I only hear from you?
Will we never get to meet?
The majority of the leaves have turned brown and fallen off, however there is still a few with color, which makes for an interesting scene.

Project 52, Week 46. First ever visit to Stonehenge - amazing place. Wanted to to takes some long expsoure shots with my 10 stop ND filter, but it was extremely windy - my tripod was weighed down by my camera bag and it still almost blew over, so getting sharp long exposure shots was impossible. About two minutes after taking this shot, the heavens opened, so I ran back to the car with a cup of tea and called it a day.
I can't believe it's already Friday. Have a great flyday everyone :)
..when outside it's starting to get cold..
"All I need is a moment, week 46"
The time was 5:39 pm and the optional theme was "orange".
Unluckily, I wasn't outside with beautiful autumnal colours, so..an inside shot!
Mission San Xavier del Bac was founded by Father Eusebio Francisco Kino as a Catholic mission in 1692. The original mission was destroyed by unfriendly Indian tribes and was rebuilt in 1783. This Baroque architecture style building is the oldest intact European structure in Arizona. San Xavier is known as "The White Dove of the Desert." The San Xavier surname of "del Bac" means "place where water appears." San Xavier has served the religious needs of the community for over 300 years and is still an active perish today.
*** For you Helen (Tenzin's Mom). I did not plan on uploading this for the theme this week. The clouds were beautiful against the blue sky. They seemed to radiate from the mission towers.
52.5 Weeks of 2010
1. Of, relating to, or located in a city.
2. Characteristic of the city or city life.
Well ... this "is" located in a city!
I'm back from my loooooong weekend up north. My friends and I had a great time ~ sorry for all the commotion, Cedar (MI). Ha, ha, ha.
I'll catch up on your streams tomorrow :)
You can purchase this garden shed/beach shed if you wish...not sure how much it was going for though...I didn't ask because I couldn't quite squeeze it onto my balcony!!
My 7 Days Of Shooting photo
Traditional Thursday...both the Vegemite and garden shed are traditional, so I hope this doorway counts:-)
The theme this week was "music" so it gave me an excuse to head out to the garage & play with the "bees" Strobist info; single Alien Bees B800 using a gridded 22 in beauty dish from above & slightly camera left. minor sharpening in Lightroom 3.

We spent our honeymoon in San Francisco and Hawaii...
This is a little momento of our time in Hawaii...
Watching the Sunset on Waikiki Beach...
Along with few other couples!
I kind of like this shot at the time...
Felt it reflected well on the whole honeymoon scene! %-)
Here's a little song from The Honeydrippers that kind of goes nicely....
"Do you remember when we met
That's the day I knew you were my pet
I want to tell you how much I love you
Come with me, my love
To the sea, the sea of love
I want to tell you how much I love you..."
Happy Anniversary! Craig xoxo
We have no real plans on how we will spend the day...
But are planning to jump in the car and drive somewhere for the night...
Go with the flow and see where the day takes us! %-)
Just want to have some Special Time Out together...
Away from the everyday chores and worries of life...
Wishing you all a Wonderful Relaxing Weekend!
Try and do something Special with someone Special in your life!!! %-)
46 / 52 weeks of 2014 - processed (or not)
i chose to go with the "or not" option of the challenge. this is SOOC
I'm home bound. I've been down with the flu all week, so I was stuck at home, doing nothing but reading and watching TV and ocasionally processing photos. And because I was stuck at home, I couldn't put in action the picture I had envisioned for this week.
The good thing is that this week I got to see a new TV show, Once Upon a Time. It's this lovely modern fairytale plot, written by two former Lost writers (got me there) and starring Ginnifer Goodwin (I'll see ANYTHING she does) and Jennifer Morrison. So, yesterday, when the deadline caught up with me and I had nothing to shoot, I decided to go with a princess theme. Bear with me, would you? We should be back to our regular programming next week. :p

This is another shot from this week's project 52. There were varying heights around Sywell Reservoir that allowed by me take different shots. Lower ground enabled me to capture objects that were partially shrouded by fog, helping me capture this shot.
At the time, there was a flock of birds flying around, which I followed over to these tree's, in turn which helped me create this eerie capture.
I did feel like black and white suited this shot quite well, but it's interesting to see how it make the whole area look foggy, when actually the sky was quite bright at the time.
All feedback, comments, views, and favourites are appreciated. Thank you.
The theme for this week in 52 of 2011 is "Mainly one colour". No contest here - after days and days of dreary grey sky we had this beautiful clear blue treat all day - so that is what you get.
Making connections with shapes is somewhat a hobby of mine. In this case I noticed the similarity in shape of mushrooms and water towers. The water tower is for the city of Makanda Illinois. The mushrooms came from the Cape nature center. The background is in Perry County, close to Apple Creek.
