This week in my life I went on a fundraising hike through a golf course that was fit for a goat and I shot a bagpiper.
We're starting things off with a landscape shot of The Dundas Valley Golf Club, just a short walk from my house. I took part in a fundraising hike through the course. I'm not a golfer, but this course is so beautiful I'm thinking of joining just so I can eat fries on the patio whenever I want. I know it's difficult to take a bad photo of pretty landscape, but I love this photo. It was taken in the evening just after a day of thunderstorms. Actually I'm not sure if I love the photo or just the actual subject matter.
I shot a bagpiper on the walk too. I'm sure 100 other people took this exact photo on the walk. I was suspicious of anyone who *didn't* whip out their iPhone for this.
As we started the 5k walk, the bagpiper stood up on a green playing us on our way. I do not think the bagpiper is a regular feature of the golf course and I do not think he knew the trek we had before us or he would have mentioned something.
Just a little THIS IS YOUR DEATH MARCH or something, in between breaths.
UP and down and up and down and up and down. At one I handed Philip off to another walker to help drag her up hill.
I. AM. LOOKING. AT. HAMBURGERS.
Now just for fun I'd like you to guess what I was photographing here. What was my subject matter do you think? The one thing I wanted to draw your attention to.
As you can plainly see, this is a photograph of a bat. I was in a friend's backyard at dusk, had half of a beer in me and no Snow White control over a wild bat at all. There were swarms of them, all over the sky, swooping, diving, flying all hibbilty skibbilty. This is my best photo.
Don't bother contacting National Geographic for me, I've already sent a watermarked photo to them and expect to hear from them very soon.
The 12 Piece Puzzle
I did it in 34 seconds.
The 48 Piece Puzzle
4:44 was my time. That's absurdly long. I tried really hard.
