Journey of a body on this earth



Today I took my camera club to the Oakland Zoo.  It was the perfect day for it because there was complete cloud cover.  I love it when that happens.  No blown out highlights to deal with!  Here’s one of the images from today.  It feels good to get back behind the camera.

  1. I have to show my son this.. He loves flamingos.

  2. They are certainly among the most bizarre and whimsical of bird designs. I always look for them during any zoo visit, and I love zoos. Wonderful after-capture processing!

  3. definitely a honk in there…

  4. Such a cool whimsical image!

  5. What a stunning image – simply beautiful! 🙂

  6. The birds look very proud. Like posing is all they want to do. Beautifully captured 🙂

  7. Laura, you brought the birds to life. Wonderful.

  8. like the way the light and shadow work so well on this picture.

  10. Yes I love clouds perfect light for photos! This photo is beautiful i love the effect.

  11. Your comments are especially true of white subjects – this one has such misty beauty.

  12. Lovely shot, certainly a bit mystical…did you do a double exposure, or a slow one…..

    • Thank you Sue. It’s all in photoshop. The original image was actually quite sharp but I thought it not to be very exciting. So this is a few layers with some blurs.

  13. Great click!:D

  14. Beautiful photo Laura.

  15. How I miss Oakland

  16. Oh I really love this shot!

  17. Beautiful image Laura!


  18. Lots going on here with the colors and tones and the subjects’ “poses”, then you added a little something extra that really makes this a special photo. Very nice work from capture through pp.

  19. You’ve captured it lovely

  20. A great shot and I love the little extras you found in your bag of creativity. I thank you very much for sharing them with us, and brightening my day at least. But then again, you always do. Here’s all my best wishes for a great week-end.

  21. ethereal perfection, Miss Laura… ❤

  22. Don’t know how I missed this Wonderland looking shot!! Next you must find hedghogs!

    • Hedgehogs lol! Do we even have those here? I’ll have to google. They are so cute from what I’ve seen on FB.

      • remember the red queen used them for croquet balls along with the flamingos!! 🙂 Anyway I’m dating myself!! I loved the old Disney cartoons but Johnny Depp in Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland was fantastic as was the film! Pig!!! I need a pig here!! 😀
