Our garden is starting to peak out and this sunflower’s color has changed radically in three days. It’s quite spindly and there was a breeze so it was hard to shoot but the petal color was worth a bit of blur.
Gary and I had a great walk around the boardwalk in White Memorial park. Unfortunately the only time we had free that day was in the middle of the day and it was hot. And, the wildlife was under cover so few birds and other animals. However, plenty of foliage and of course, the wild “photographer” was a good subject from time to time. Here he’s shooting a field of ivy. His shot turned out great, mine sucked so I’m posting one of his back instead.
All in all we had a fun time. Yes, we were sweaty when we got home but it’s great fun to go out photographing with a friend, especially one as knowledgeable and generous and kind as Gary Sharp. I learned a huge amount just watching him work and of course, he had plenty of suggestions to help me make better pictures.
Cats in Sinks… right, you guessed it.

Randy Gloss, a member of the percussion group Hands On ‘Semble has a great pandeiro lesson online: Frevo and Marcha for Pandeiro. It is described well, has full notation, and QuickTime movies showing hand technique. The rhythms are fantastic and worth learning and if I can every learn how to hold a pandeiro I might actually practice this.
