The Gizmo

This picture was a test to see how fast my Nikkor E series 50mm f/1.8 really is. The answer seems to be "really fast" ^_^

Who's looking at who?

My parent's cat, Pinkie, and a curious little blackbird. This scene was just perfect; I was looking at the bird and the cat, the cat was looking at the bird and me, and the bird is clearly looking at both of us...

Eurasian coot with youngen

A coot with her young, shot down from the side of a bridge. While essentially the city pidgeons of the water, I still like city coots, whereas I strongly dislike city pidgeons...

Eye of the goose - part 1

I love the way feathers can do things that make you wonder whether they're feathers at all... oh right, and the goose was kind of pretty too.

Eye of the goose - part 2

More goose... not as pretty as the other, but I like the eye-straight-on concept

This is my box

This is, clearly, Pinky's box. We'll just have to get our own box...

This is my box.. err, bed.. err... zZzZz

Clearly boxes make great beds, even if you don't really fit in them ^_^;

Pinky on the prowl, part 1

Pinky the cat prowling about in the Sequoia tree. The little wooden construction you see in the foreground is a nesting box...

Pinky on the prowl, part 3

Pinky the cat prowling about in the Sequoia tree, exposing his soft fuzzy underbelly! Clearly I had no choice but to snap a picture.

Pinky the cat prowling about some more in the Sequoia tree.

An uncertain kitty

This poor kitty wasn't sure whether to run away, or keep looking at me taking a picture of it. Just because not many people seem to see why this is a good picture, a brief education: notice the overall gray tones, contrasted to the green jumping out of the picture. That's what I was going for when I made the shot.

A friendly gul

While walking around Canada Place (brilliant name for a building isn't it?) this gul decided it felt zen enough to let me just stand right next to it and take a few pictures. A Japanese couple was quite astounded and tried to do the same after I finished, though it didn't quite like them as much.

A barking hello

This was a curious dog. Every time we'd walk from home to the busloop it would jump up frantically and bark at us until we were out of sight. Until I took this picture. Then we never heard from it again... maybe I caught its soul O.o!

Yellow dragonfly

A yellow dragon fly, shot at the dragonfly pond by simply setting up my tripod, hooking up a 300mm lens to my dSLR so it was effectively a 435mm lens, and waiting for a dragonfly to sit down. Voila ^_^
