I Wish to see the world around me!!!


Get Out And Shoot, for 2020!

I need to really make more of an effort to get out and shoot! For 2014, I made a list. No way to sugar coat it… I sucked at getting to the list. 2015, and well... I was a WEEeeee bit better. Only just. I made a list and that just didn't work for me. I need to be better about making time (as opposed to just making a list). So, 2016 was ok. 2017, I was a bit better, 2018? I fell in love, all over again. and 2019? I made a bit more progress with my camera.

2019 I made a few more shots... added WAY more to the list than images I made.
But the one biggest thing I discovered, was, I need to Make Time To Shoot! I definitely need to make time to shoot.

Still on the list: more long-exposure waterfalls, more wildlife to shoot, Cape Cod Lighthouses, more species, and more wish-list places to shoot. Come to think of it, what's not on the list?

the List:

More Birding
✔ Screech Owl
Great Horned
Burrowing Owl
✔ Barred Owl
Barn Owl
✔ Snowy Owl
Great Grey Owl
Short-earred Owl
Long-earred Owl
hell... almost any owl

Raptors, any raptors
Bald Eagle
Sharp Shinned Hawk
✔ Coopers Hawk
Red Shouldered
✔ Red Tailed Hawk
✔ Mute Swan
More... more... more Raptors.

Always, I strive to give back

To the animals and birds around me

to put more plants in than I take out

And be a good steward for the world around me!
