Baby Roselyn has had a new gift for a few months now. The drizzle didn’t seem to be doing too much damage to him.
For 150+ years small gifts have been left to keep her company.
A plaster casting, or death mask, of her is under the tram covering. Death Masks were common in the mid 1800’s but few remain in cemeteries now. Perhaps the covering has kept it well protected from weather all these years.
The Ibis had disappeared for a little while. Where I was, they weren’t.
When I finally found a few it was hard work for a single shot. They hid in thick branches.
Eventually some moved out and I shot a few quick frames. Most stayed away which was too bad the drift wood made for nice backgrounds.
For the gear readers, these shots were taken with a Tamron 18-400 lens. A one size fits all generalist.
Basically it does a little of everything, but nothing really well.
However, it can shoot ‘almost’ macro, wide angle, and way out to 400mm. I have a ‘love / hate’ thing here but it fits about anything you need to shoot when the opportunity arises. I was not planning on anything but landscape this day yet I grabbed these.
