Drifting ducks


I always carry a least one camera when I'm out walking. I have a dSLR which I prefer to use, but lets face it - it can be a bit inconvenient to carry round at all times. Therefore I have a small, compact camera that is always hanging in my belt. In that way I can "get" a subject when I see one.

Today I was not the only one out. This little group of ducks where drifting along peacefully while I was standing pondering about "Life, the Univere and Everything" on a quay. It was the job of a few seconds to include them in "Everything".

For noen hærlige ender:) Her er det snøstorm i støytene og solen titter fram av og til for å erte oss;)Kameraet er nesten alltid med meg også! Føler meg naken uten!
Ha en flott fotokveld:)

Pondering and wandering - perfect ways to spend part of every day, RuneE.

Eg ordla meg kanskje litt feil i blogginnlegget mitt i dag. Eg er klar over at det ikkje er for sko eg har fått awarden. Mitt poeng er at skoinnlegget kanskje var malplassert, er litt andre ting eg brukar å blogge om. Hadde eg visst om awarden før hadde eg kanskje droppa heile skoinnlegget... Det var nå mest tenkt som eit pausesignal, av og til stoppar ideane opp.

Uff, eg håpar ikkje alle trur at eg trur at eg har fått awarden for noko så tåpeleg som eit innlegg om sko... Hehe

Eg blei iallefall glad for awarden!

Oh I just love ducks! It's always nice to have a camera handy...especially when out pondering Life, the Universe, and Everything :)

I just started a new blog where I'm posting some "kreations".
My first post shows 2 ducks landing on the water :)

Fine ender.
Her inne i fjorden er det lite ender å sjå, men det hender det dukkar opp nokre svaner avogtil.
Eg har lært meg til å ta med kamera stort sett over alt. Dei gangene eg gløymer det dukkar det alltid opp eit flott motiv.
Ha ein fin kveld.

I know what you mean about cameras not being convenient to carry but I still have my 6 year old digital that I love even tho everyone raves about higher pixels. Mine can take great 8 x 10 photos and I haven't found anything I like better.

That water looks very cold! Nice line of ducks!

I do all my serious thinking when I'm walking. Ducks are such fun to watch.

The subject is topical, after it threw snowball and rains, next it was we see also ducks!
Very good post.

I also have a small compact camera which I carry around when the DSLR is not convenient. I think the ducks were posing just for you today.

Lara said...

a wonderful group of drifters! I would stay by the lake for hours watching them!

Sometimes it feels so good to just drift along and contemplate. Good shot.

evlahos said...

I'm a lot like that as well with carrying my little camera for quick shots as well. Great capture with the ducks!! They always quack me up when they waddle around on the land! :D

...Neat ducks; I have just found a pouch that has a belt strap and had wondered about doing that with my compact. Safer than in jeans pocket!
