A life, pocket cameras, and a studio practice.
Posting twice a week and sometimes more!

Finally back in the swamp, lovely day on the boat, we're slightly toasted but happy. Lots of nesting birds, baby nutria and a beehive that looks inside out. The swamp is very zen, "you can never step in the same river twice", even if we go to the same spot three times in a day it is different not only by light but by the ceatures therein.
We'll be going out again today and we'll keep you posted.
