I’m alone so much of the time that the ‘isolation’ part of this whole thing is no big deal to me, but the timing wasn’t great. I had just resolved to start swimming again, my favorite form of exercise, but the pool is now off limits. The beach is also. But I can walk. And as I walk I am amazed to hear the songbirds, though I usually can’t see them. So when I did see this bluebird perch in the tip top of the tree it tempted me to take it’s picture with my phone. I’m surprised it turned out as well as it did. With photos on the brain I couldn’t help but stop to take pictures of this beautiful hibiscus shrub at someone’s front door. The sun was right behind me, I had to angle myself to keep my shadow off the flowers. The shrub was loaded with blooms, it was pretty spectacular in the sun.
This last picture was taken the next day with my little Lumix lx5 camera, which I had tucked away and nearly forgotten was there. It’s a point and shoot, easy to carry, and I wanted to take the same shot as the iPhone shot from the day before, just for fun. It must have been the same time of day because the shadow is in the same place. I should carry it with me more often.
