Occasionally when I’m working too hard I’ll get an email with a subject that says something like “7 pictures for you”. In my email window I can see a summary of the mail and that says, “You have been sent 7 pictures. followed by a list of “descriptive” file names. Usually along the lines of IMG_3681-1.JPG.
I always stop and have a look as soon as I can because I know that the email is from my favorite wildlife photographer. I suspect that a “professional” wildlife photographer might have comments on contrast and lighting and “subject composition” but me, I can’t tell the difference between these and the stuff that get’s slapped into the glossy pages of National Geographic (except that there’s less (and by less I mean none!) indigenous nudity.).
Looking at these pictures always reminds me that no matter how many computers and monitors I have going and no matter how many countries are represented on the call that I might be on that just outside my window is an awesome world. Because, well, it is just outside my window. She sits in the next room with your tripod and her 17 foot lens and takes pictures with a camera that can double as a GPS for my truck… or… heck probably as a navigation computer for the space shuttle (on sale by the way). When she thinks she has a few good ones I get an email.
Here are the ones from today:
Not bad eh? ‘scuse me while I stare out the window for a while.
