Beautiful yellow eye patch.Great shots!
Wonderful series of photos Bob.Best regards, Irma
As always wonderful series of photography!
That's a great series, Bob. I love the water in the images. Was it naturally 'monochrome' of had you been at work in Photoshop? The way the yellow pops is great.Thank you for the introduction to the Otis Taylor with Anne Harris clip. I wasn't aware of either of these two, and have now had a look around. I was even more amazed by Otis Taylor's version of Hey Joe accompanied by 11 year old 'Taz'. That young kid is amazing, with a maturity in his playing of someone five times his age!Best wishes, Bob - - - Richard
Thanks Richard, no, I didn't use photoshop, it was genuine.
Bob can teach me the power of nature. Because Bob is so strong as I couldn't ever imagine.I admire your art and your power, my friend.You are always on my mind. Because my words are stronger from me.Yannis Politopoulos
Thanks Yannis. Yes, I could teach you, but, it is the camera and lens!
A swimming beauty.
These are so beautiful, they look like our Cormorants!
Love this little Cormorant. Nice pics.. Regards..
He's beautiful, Bob! I love the detail you have captured here.
So dark and slender, like a mysterious shadow in the waves :) And that streak of gold near the beak - as if sun-stained
