Dead Martin by Merhlin
Dead Martin
It's a long story. This is an actor by the name of Don Winsor (not a model, though he could be, ) and there's a long story behind this photo, which I'm not going to go into. Yes, he has on makeup (and a wig) to make him look like a member of a zombie "rat pack" or a sort of "zombie lounge singer. The picture was taken in a bar. I just wanted to show that I can take decent photos of something besides waterfowl and sunsets    ;)   I'm branching out a little and actually getting paid to do some theater photography work.  The Roxy's Downtown Cabaret owner is paying me to take photos and video of Roxy's renovation project here in Wichita. A kind of Phoenix rising.  He's pleased enough with my work that he's going to do a showing of my work and later, he'll use my photos and video to make a documentary about the theater's renovation. So I'm sort of tooting my own horn here a bit. I'm learning a lot and going out of my "comfort zone." They say that's how you grow. There just might be something to that.
Immature Ring-billed Gull by Merhlin
Immature Ring-billed Gull
My Sibley Guide To Birds says this is a "first winter," juvenile ring-billed gull. I had someone ask about the difference. The adult has a notable grey coloring to the top of their wings and the undersides are pretty pale. The juvie's have a lot more brown in their upper and underside wings in their first two years. Feel free to correct or add information if you have it.
My Ring-billed Gull Friend by Merhlin
My Ring-billed Gull Friend
I've gotten several quality photos of these birds since last October, (and I suppose they all start looking alike)  but I don't tire of taking its photo. This is the most recent.
The Golden Pillar by Merhlin
The Golden Pillar
Sorry, but I'm a sucker for sunsets. I never tire of watching them or taking photos of 'em.  I only have to open a sliding glass door and step out on my balcony to see these. An unrestricted (well, for the most part) view to the west allows me to see sunsets that many won't notice because of their location. 
Winter Canadian Geese by Merhlin
Winter Canadian Geese
 (January 2015) Taken in Wichita Kansas. U.S.A. It's been a while since I posted any geese photos.  I suppose, over time, they all start to look alike. :) 
So what, exactly, does that mean?
I think it means they have a more discerning eye.  ;)  lol

Hello Jeff, :wave: Thank you for the Fave!Really appreciated!

as for your note on sharing camera data.. I'm like you when I started shooting 8 years ago, that's how I learned ..... too bad others don't see the value in teaching others.I have made it a point to help all who ask me as for camera know how...I have made some really great friends this way, and have helped many to become top notch wildlife photographers!
