Weekly Photo Challenge – My Neighborhood
“Where we love is home. Home that our feet may leave but not our hearts.”
Oliver Weldell Holmes
OK, I admit it. I’ve given up 😦 It doesn’t happen often. My husband will tell you I’m one of the most persevering (aka stubborn) people you will ever meet. But I simply cannot convince my i-phone 4s to give me a good photo. Oh sure, I could claim I don’t HAVE an i-phone but those who know me would never trust me again since I am a techno-geek and actually had one of the first i-phones out there
“To succeed, one must be creative and persistent.”

I went out with the best of intentions on Sunday, convinced that I could overcome my resistance to i-phonography. I left my trusty D300s at home and came across some amazing (as always) photo ops. There was a gorgeous blue heron with a giant fish in his mouth, and a beautiful white egret standing right next to a large alligator. There was also a fierce battle between an osprey and an eagle over either nest space or a freshly-caught fish. I couldn’t be sure of the subject of their fight, and candidly I’m not sure I could have caught that one even WITH my Nikon, but it sure was amazing to watch!
“Life is a myriad of territories to discover.”
Sadly though, all of these wonderful opportunites went for naught, since I proved once again to be totally inept with the i-phone 😦 So I have resorted to using my existing files to share with you some of the amazing everyday sightings here on our beautiful barrier island.
And of course, another beautiful Kiawah sunset – this one taken just yesterday.

And, just to show you what a good sport I am, here, sadly, is the best I could do with the i-phone photo of the heron with the fish. Just so you know I tried 🙂
“It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood.”
