It's an interesting view but I was thinking it would be possible to get a front-on view of the figure (but I'm not at all familiar with the site).

Really, I probably would have scrapped it on account of the gabions but it works!

OT I know but I just have to share this comment from a non-photography site (where it was also OT):
"We have lots of Canadian geese, but Canada is not sending its best birds, buhlieve me." :lol:

Why?

I just read Snafu711's post where he describes photography as a way of discovering the world. YES!

I might add that the technical side of photography holds no fascination for me. My grasp of such things is pretty limited. What I love about the technology is that, while my technical limitations can be frustrating at times, I can still sometimes produce images, some of which are interesting &/or meaningful &/or beautiful--and without messing with chemicals! :~)

Why?

Good question: I ask myself that same question all the time. There are a lot of great responses too, many of which I strongly identify (although I confess I haven't read them all yet.)

I share a small percent of my photos with family & friends and make decent ones publicly available on SmugMug, the link to which I share with people who might be interested. And of course there's posing them in appropriate threads here at PF. Fundamentally, I guess it's a way of savoring sights and indulging my aesthetic side.

There is one aspect of my photography which I think may have some impact though and that's when I shoot communal events and make the photos available to the participants. I've done shot several community activities and I think it has value in terms of community-building. Also it gives me license to do my very favorite kind of photography: people being people.

In the same vein, I shot most of my daughter middle and high school games and shared the photos with the coaches and parents. I think (certainly hope) that may have had a very positive effect (I only posted photos of the girls being competent* and I like to think that served as positive reinforcement.) These things can take a bit of work and discipline but that's ok (in small doses.)

* actually one coach requested that I make complete game shoots available for coaching purposes and I did (like, we were "in to win", right? ;~)

That would be my guess from the look but they're not particularly large birds.
