Today Nikky and me went to the beach...
We spent three hours on the beach...
Apart from the cuddling and the spending time with each other we also met a few seagulls.
Now a word about seagulls. I wanted to take pictures of them and while doing it, it also struck me that I could do an entire series on them. The beach is just a minute walk from my apartment here and the seagulls are there always!
Seagulls are one of the most interesting creatures that I have come across. They scare you, they surprise you, they play with you like friends.
If I moved towards them, they did not fly.. but just walked. If I moved left, they moved right .. and the vice versa. And the faster I walked, the faster they walked!
There was a person on the beach who had supposedly come to read, but she seemed too impressed with my act. I also had other people staring at me..
I was trying to take pictures of it. I wanted to take a picture of it just when it takes off.
With the limited possibilities that my lenses allow, I kept trying!
I could sense that Nikky was getting frustrated at this... of me trying to capture it .. I tried for many times... and thats something with me.
I like to keep trying till I get the shot I want.
One of the things about being a perfectionist. Guess its inbuilt as a Virgo.
However, many a times, it does lead to problematic situations.
At the end I had to settle for this. I also realize that I need a faster lens. Someday perhaps I will get that and Nikky will be happy too! :)
Lets see where we go together now!
Oh Ya, we did go on a cruise the other day. The Odyssey at Chicago. Perhaps I will write about it the next time.
Till then ..
