Wildlife Photography

Fauna in the U.S.A.

My “serious” photography adventures have me lugging a couple of cameras and a few lenses into the wild outdoors.

A long lens lets me capture four footed or slow moving animals in the field easily if I remember to be patient.

I’ve found that capturing flying birds with a camera are one of the most challenging endeavors. Fast moving birds are difficult to track with a long lens and using a shorter lens produces smaller subjects in the image.

I’ve thrown away countless images of wildlife that were blurry, poorly exposed, badly composed, etc. Below are a few that I’ve kept over the years.

Musical Concerts

Songs that you May Know

For most of you, music is enjoyable. For me, live music is exciting.

I love listening to those charged voices and experience the stage movements of  my favorite performers. I’ve had the chance to see a fair share of concerts. But for the most part I’ve been sticking to performances that feature musicians that date back to my younger years.

It’ll be obvious from the songs below that I’m among the older crowd and those of you who grew up in the 70’s and 80’s you will be familiar with some of these faces and music.

Here are a few songs from performances that I’ve attended.
