Rather late in the evening, yesterday, I decided to pull myself together and go out to the park. It was such a fine evening, about an hour and a half before sunset. When I got there, I quickly realised the timing wasn’t good for photography.
I’d been hoping for some birds and perhaps even a raccoon, thanks to the late hour. That didn’t happen — why would a raccoon decide to show up just because I’d managed to drag my sorry derrière out, for once?! Besides, the place was loaded with people — families, with little kids and dogs.
I put some peanuts on top of a dustbin, in order to attract a blue jay, I could hear nearby. The kid immediately took them and fed them to the squirrels. Fine. I went into the woods and looked at the plant life instead. The almost setting sun made the light very nice in there, amongst the trees … very green. I never managed to get that nice effect, when the sun’s rays are trickling down through the leaves.
What made me really happy about all this, was to see how well this park is taken advantage of by the Saint Johners.
