Aged Folks at the Park

A continuation of the OF (Ol' Foggie) series. These were some nice victims at the park.

I had a big zoom lens on and was pointing the camera across the pond. This gentleman was strolling by and said 'Enjoying the Wildlife?'. I than took a picture of him. He would have been insulted - but he didnt know it, because I was using my nifty new right-angle scope. Its not easy to use/aim, but its fun for snagging pics of strangers without looking like a (total) creep.

Both of these were taken with the right-angle scope. If anything about the second picture looks planned ... its not. The scope is extremely difficult to aim... her shoes just got lucky.

Ok, maybe it doesnt belong in the OF series, but there is something OF about it.


A dirty little seagull at the park. I like the color in the water behind him, it was a nice late afternoon glow.

Its hard to see in the small version of this file, but there are tons of birds behind the tree. The sky had an eerie green glow. Ok, maybe not, the sky was Picasaed (not gonna say 'Photoshopped') I silhouetted the image some and tinted it. It looks like a poster available at Target.
