Four Starlings…

A good few years ago M had gone back to Ireland for a month to see his parents and I had stayed at home.  One Saturday I decided to go to Liverpool to take photographs of architecture and general life.  Liverpool is a pool of things to see everywhere you turn.  So, lunch time came and I was walking south along Queens Dock and decided to go to McDonalds to eat.  Being a bright sunny day, the starlings were there waiting for people to drop food or feed them.  I had sat my camera on the table and was eating my fries.  More and more birds came over to see if I was feeding them.  I decided to break up the fries and gently throw them onto the next table where the birds were now gathering.  Seeing that they were all coming to the same spot I decided to turn my DSL camera to them and press the auto focus.  Again gently throwing fries to the table for them they all of a sudden arranged themselves in the position you can see from my photo, and I clicked the shutter and snapped this photo.  Needless to say, when I looked at the photo I decided to give them all the rest of the fries as I thought they had earned them.

I hope you like the result of my photo day.


Goodbye FaceBook…

I had grown tied of Facebook some time ago, but kept it open due to the dog training as they only communicated via that and posted the classes and so called homework on it.  So, as we no longer go to the training classes I decided to get rid of my account.  I joined 12 years ago, and at the time I thought it was a great thing, however, over the years I have grown tied of it and with the data handling and general BS all over it I decided, enough was enough.  Yesterday I dowloaded all 3558 photographs I had on it, and pressed the delete button, with no regrets.

Today I imported all the images into my iMac’s iPhoto, and it was nice seeing all the things I had done over the 12 years, and especially seeing photos of Lilu, from when she was young back in 2006 up to a few days before she passed away.  Some of the photos I did not remember, so made me smile, and others that are very close to my heart.  One of them I have added to this post from back in 2006.  I have far to many ones that I am fond of, but this is one of my all time favourite photographs, so I hope you like it too.
