The Bearded reedling (Panurus biarmicus) is one of my favourite birds, and I was lucky to encounter a flock a couple of days ago!
I don’t have a long zoom lens, so these images are heavily cropped (~30% of the original image!) though still reasonably sharp so I’m pretty pleased with the outcome.
A sweet moment between mother and child ❤
Photographed today in the Amsterdamse Waterleidingduinen
Despite the abundance in photographs (see previous post), I still think there’s room for more. 🙂 Even a photo of a cat! To add to the trillions out there already.
Actually, I’ve been wanting to use my new camera, Fujifilm X-T1, but due to lack of time and horrid weather I haven’t been able to get out. So, my cat Odd has been forced to model for me at home. This picture was taken in low light without flash
Stat 1- Every two days, there are more pictures being taken than in the whole history of film photography.
Stat 2- There are more pictures being taken by iPhone than any other camera (~65%).
Stat 3- Before this weekend is over, there will be more photographs than bricks in the world. (Bricks!)
It makes me wonder, is there any point in taking photographs anymore, or has everything been done already?
Here are two pictures I’ve taken with my iPhone. I like both of them, even if they’re not particularly interesting or unique in any way. So is it okay to share them, or have we reached a point where we’ve had enough?
(1) The Hirschgebouw on Leidseplein, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
(2) Autumn colours in Stadsparken, Jönköping, Sweden
Some pictures I took in Sweden last weekend:
(1) A little Eurasian red squirrel (Sciurus vulgaris) peeking out from behind a tree
(2) Small mushrooms growing on a fallen tree trunk
(3) Clematis seed heads up close
(4) The autumn colours were wonderful. I was lucky; the day after I left it started to snow 🙂
