Getting My Picture Ya-Yas Out


It's been some time since I've been out exercising my photography brain.

This weekend I had a chance to go out and about with a Certain Very Nice Man and take some pictures.


We went walking underneath some very impressive towers.



We went to a nursery and found lots of colorful cacti.



Pigeons!  Lots and lots of pigeons! 



And seagulls too!

Happy Tuesday to you all!

Love the colors of the cactus. Won't tell you how I had to look at it several times to see that it really is cactus.......

Just a word of advice...wear a hat and carry lens cleaner when photographing birds from below. :)

I always love your pictures. :) The tower picture is my favorite, I think. Followed closely by the cacti. And the birds. ;)

I hope the seagulls aren't looking to fight the pigeons, they are severely out-numbered.
