So I have done quite a few mannequin shots over the years here on the blog (I have a "thing" for them), but this one is probably the most bizarre? Things are a little "off-kilter" in Provincetown, Mass, and I like that just fine.
In the natural world, the Ocean is "my place." Little gives me more pleasure than seeing, touching, smelling, and just trying to be one with Mother Ocean. Last night I enjoyed a special time with her in Cape Cod. As I waited hopefully for a beautiful Atlantic sunset, these tiny waves beckoned before me. Waves so subtle that only a few gained the necessary inches in order to "mini-break."
I'd like to think this sensuous water knew of my presence and called to me with their lovely display. I feel fortunate to be able to capture these moments with my camera. Each one unique, never to happen again.
Last night something special happened. These Common Tern's were feeding right off our beach. They dive, wheel, turn like fighter jets. Actually, faster and sharper. They were catching insects on the wing.
A pro-body would probably be able to autofocus on this fast moving subject, but with my 6d, I had to manually focus. Took a lot of shots to get a few in focus but this shot made it all worth it.
