An Ordinary Day in Medford in May

black and white, IG Series, Nature, photography, Places, Travel

While checking out the herring run, (you can read more about the details here), we saw these beautiful birds and other creatures. It’s amazing how you can catch quiet moments and simple, inspiring moments in nature, with these birds, fish, and reptiles carrying on their migrations, feedings, and natural life cycles, not too far from a bustling city like Boston. I’m new to capturing flying and swimming friends. It’s quite challenging. I took a few liberties with some blurred moments, trying to create an abstract feel. Maybe I’m not up for the wildlife challenge-yet! I will be posting some more soon on my revamped Instagram, @loweaperture. More news about that soon.

Which Way To Go?

black and white, IG Series

I attempt IG here and there, decide for it, against it, and then ambiguously deactivate it. Smart for a photo blogger, right? The filters are fun, and I like playing with them. I like to keep things simple though, and too many platforms can make me question myself as to where I should be and why?  So I have some random images I had saved from those IG days…I will share here and there via haiku camera.

Maybe this photo sums it all up:
