Everyday Moments: Lens-Artists Photo Challenge

My everyday is made up of my loving Muffin. Whose heart wouldn’t melt when she sits and looks up with those brown eyes full of love.

My everyday is full of water. On the river there is always something or someone to watch but never is it busy enough that it stresses – rather it helps unwind.

Despite being the middle of winter there are still those who everyday hit the beach.

Judging by the little boy’s reaction to catching a fish I don’t think this was his everyday but it will be a memorable moment with many more to come.

Thank you Amy for this week’s prompt – everyday moments

Kookaburra’s breakfast and an impatient husband: Feathered Friday


© irene waters 2018

Don’t spend hours looking for the impatient husband. We came across this kookaburra on our dog walk. If it had been just Muffin and I, I would have taken photo after photo until I got a clear well defined photo. I had not realised just how difficult it would be to hold a camera with a telescopic lens steady and I know a tripod is now on my wish list. When I’m with Roger though, I have maybe two minutes to take a photo – hence the lack of clarity.
