I have photographed this work several times, never very well. I have tried angles, settings, etc. This time all I wanted was to get the depth and focus correct. Let the rest just happen. It did.

I have no name for this, the pun may or may not work. No matter how it’s shot the results are the same, so here it is.

From another angle, same result.

The statues and fountain are very complex.  My favorite pieces are actually the small water spouts. They run on the sides of the fountain.

Not a very creative article, but in spite of my sarcasm I do thinks it’s an interesting piece.

Old Snaggled Tooth Was Near, Alligator

I have seen this large guy several times before. Teeth are missing, and growing outward.

An Alligator can regrow their teeth. A good thing considering the life they live.

This one is about 12 feet (3.6 meters) which is about right for the biggest in this marsh. Some may be a little bigger, but after a certain size who cares. They’re just really big.

Like An Old Movie, Alligators

Early every Saturday morning the local NYC stations played old safari adventure films. As a young boy this was fascinating stuff.

Fast forward…

Note; if you enlarge the images you can see more Alligators just oou of sight. I could not get them all in the view finder.

 

Start Of An Alligator Day

This was a sign of  things to come.  The first thing I saw was this Alligator. Right next to the dirt road we use.

I was going to keep going and not stop but I was thinking the day would be very slow. Rule 101 is get the shot.

It was nothing more than open the car door, walk a few feet and ask him to smile.

Above is about the correct distance between the two of us.

Little did I know how many Alligators were right up ahead.

Over The Surf, Gulls

Windy, and that makes it wet, but Gulls are always busy.

These are actually hard shots to get, most grab focus on the waves not the bird. Fall a little behind, or in front when following the bird and the image is waves instead.

It’s always soothing to stand with the wind and waves. A great change of pace.
