#1 Rule for Photographers. ALWAYS carry a decent camera. Even if not your best one, a GOOD one.
#2 Rule for Photographers Refer to Rule #1. ALWAYS You might miss that shot.
But there I was off to the first day of school, wondering how I would get two art rooms ready for Monday’s students and Matthew was coming with me to lift and haul and help set up. JB came later and knew what to do to prepare.
And what did we see on the the way to school? A Wild Turkey family (gaggle, flock, covey???) And did I have a decent camera with me? No. I broke the rules.
Had to photograph the mother turkey and her 5 chicks(?)/children with the trusty iPhone. I kicked myself all the way to school afterwards. You just can’t predict what will be in your path.. Moving right along up the sidewalk. Turn the corner down the alley.
Unusual back up on Bigelow Boulevard and no traffic from the oncoming direction. Saw the wild turkeys eating the corn put out for them. Usually you would fly by doing 45, no chance for a shot. I was driving from school, surprised by the long two lines of cars as I approached Herron Hill intersection. Fluffy large flakes and an increase in wind? Just driving and thinking. Inching up to the light. Thinking. The huge TV at the gym explained the clog. Showed the scene I’d just driven by but I’m not reporting on that. Today it is just Wild Turkey in the Snow.
But today it is just the Wild Turkey in the Snow.
