Family Field Day at Sox Park. 

But not my family. I have no idea who these people are.

I was so tired when I got home, I forgot to post. 

Last home stand of the year. Heading for a long off season. But at least the people at the park looked like they were having fun.

Up. 

  
Nobody looks up. 

  
Nobody looks up when they are in a hurry.  

  
And some times even when they are not.

The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

Having a camera literally at my fingertips is not always such a good idea. Not every moment is or should be a Kodak Moment. Often, as I am cleaning out the back log of digital data, I am amazed and stunned by what I find.

The Good.

My attempt to take a picture of a hawk that caught a small rodent right in front of our eyes.

The Ugly.

Does this one really need an explanation?

People in Pictures by the Lake

I admire people who can take good candid street portraits.  It is not my strong point, but I have been trying to learn.  In general, I don’t think people like the idea of a stranger taking their picture, and my own desire not to get caught limited my abilities.  This resulted in a lot of pictures of the backs of peoples heads, although sometimes you get lucky and people turn just enough to show their faces.

A Kiss by Lake Michigan

But I was really not content with just sneaking up on people, and I had to overcome the fear of being caught.

I See You

It takes a lot of patience, and a quick finger, because people who are not aware you are taking a picture will make unexpected and quick movements.

Oops!

I may not be great at it yet, but I think I am getting the hang of it.
