Playing by the train tracks
I've been listening to a book on tape. It was brand new, still shrink wrapped, which I nabbed at Marshalls for a buck or two. The problem with books on tape is that I can only listen in the car. I no longer have a tape player anywhere else. It's a Robert Ludlum book so you know it's suspenseful. So when I get somewhere I have a hard time turning off the book and getting out of the car. Last night I parked my car by my apartment, sat listening to the book, and noticed that the sky and clouds were doing interesting things over the train tracks.
And then I switched out lenses. Because I punish myself sometimes by loading my already heavy purse with the fun new lens. Which is also quite heavy. And I got these shots.
I would like to point at that these are the same shot, essentially. They just have a different focus on them. If you look at the first picture, these are taken two open spaces to the left of the big tree. Isn't that kind of wild?
Speaking of wild, here's some wildlife. I was shooting these pictures and this little character popped up her little head. There's some nesting going on so I'm assuming it's a female. You can just make out her mouthful of grass.
Here she is, scurrying along at the top of the ridge.
