Wrote this as a comment on the Wild Bird group discussion pages. Applies to the rest of the pictures not taken on a pond.
Unfortunately I have been sick for a number of years. A bit better now, at first, some three or four years ago, the best I could do was drive to a pond and sit down. I say the best because I would get comfortable. Being comfortable when otherwise being in discomfort led to me sitting a long time, in the sun, with my camera. Oceans of time have been spent just sitting, and waiting. I use Nikon digital cameras and lenses with motion control, that helps you freeze the action. With quick reflexes, good aim, and just all the time I needed, i built up a group of photos I like. Most of it is luck, or providence, as i say, that makes for a good picture.
Basically all I do is try to take pictures. What amazes me with all the time it takes with nothing going on, how often I get the 'lucky shot' or 'lucky day' or 'you lucked out with that picture' comment. Amazing that some think what takes up all my time and yields a few good pictures is a result of luck. . I started out with 'unfortunately', well fortunately all this has led to what many people seem to think are amazing pictures. Has not really led to many sales, just a lot of compliments. Trying to live on my tiny VA pension, has not been easy. However if they never sell, my pictures have served as a therapy to me and given me a lot of peace and enjoyment. If they do for others then it is enough. Paul. 21 Jan 2013
