The wind and atmosphere were not on my side... Still learning experience.
Thanks for being such a good sport yesterday
Also thanks Lena for being a second set of eyes.
On the way in to meet Chelsea in Brampton I saw two Herons and caught this. :)
Of course I can't report it because requires a form to fill out... but does not provide one that actually lets you report Photos unless it is Drive or Doc because they want a Drive or Docs URL.
Though of course in some cases I just give up anyway because some of these people that steal photos post so much that when something comes up on a Image search it may be in a Album which Google has hidden and they post so often that it could take hours to find the post to report.
I only do a Image search once an a while because I'm not a major photographer. So it is really frustrating that Google has decided to make this process needlessly difficult.
the watermark one showed up in an image search... instead of taking me to the post it puts me at the top of the G+ page. They post nearly 50 times a day... I have no date to go by.
I might take the time if when you do the report and it asks you to fill out a form, it then send you to a selection of forms, you answer the questions, and it takes you, every time to Docs and Drive which means a G+ link is no good and won't let you submit.
Should have used a solid colour cloth though, the Red and White checks pulled the eye to much and I'm not happy with the solution.
Over all though I accomplished what I set out to do.. flex a little photo muscle.
I also reminded my self I need to walk away from a photo after shooting.. my eyes were still burnt. Grr.. Oh well it was just a bit of fun.
I'm not happy as the wind, though light was right at me, and the low ceiling and humidity meant I was in a cloud of gun smoke by the end.
But... I think over the next day or so, I'm going to try something different with them. We will see.
Though I have this shot which is passable.
Thankfully I live in Niagara a falls I have two chances a week every week to shoot fireworks
Ended up going over about 2-3 hours later than I thought. I'm ok with that. It was a good day. Actually it was a really good day. Found a new Indian place near St Lawerence Market and had pretty decent Palak Paneer. At the end of the day good waffles. I was Social, and generally as good as I've been in months (maybe a year). Of course Ms Lena needed to tease animals :) but it lead to this shot.
Now to get my new light modifiers built, get out for some cherry blossoms, and some Niagara Scenery, and try to get a few portraits of people going.
I work in the Financial Industry with a big five bank for my day job, and am passionate about technology, history, and culture. Of late I have been enjoying organizing and participating in photowalks through my connections on Google+.
When I'm not photographing I'm usually reading about history, Wikipedia, or researching one thing or another. I also tend to Hike or Walk a fair bit. I spent my formative years in the Niagara Region and recently moved back after nearly a decade away.
