Weekly Prompts Wednesday Challenge – Bored

thanks to Sue W. and GC for hosting Weekly Prompts https://weeklyprompts.com/2023/01/18/weekly-prompts-wednesday-challenge-bored/

How does one convey bored in a photograph? Is it someone napping in the middle of the day, a grim look on a child’s face or the sad look in an animal’s eyes?

It’s hard to see what someone is feeling in a photo unless you use your imagination.

Taking My Big Camera for a Walk Yesterday

….and capturing all these wonderful shots with my zoom lens

Yesterday was a wonderfully sunny day and I was hoping the the turtles would be out, sun bathing on the logs in the pond. I wasn’t disappointed.

After I left the turtles I came across a few more critters.

Lashing Rain and Visitors to My Yard Today

made a To Do List today and listed 12 jobs

The rain came down so heavily today that I figured it was a good day to do things around the house. One of the first things I did was go through my closet and dresser and pull out most of my summer clothes. After I removed some sweaters and long sleeved shirts from my storage bins I replaced them with the summer things.

I managed to complete 10 of the 12 jobs that I posted. Looking out my back door earlier today I noticed that there was a lot of activity on my deck and around the bird feeder. I guess squirrels and birds have to eat even in the rain.

A while back, I had stopped using my Panasonic Lumix camera because of a problem. I really thought it was toast but after discussing the issues with Cee she went to the Panasonic website and she suggested that I put all the settings back to the factory settings it came with. Success!!! That small change did the trick. The following photos were taken with the telephoto lens on the Panasonic through a glass door.

Fed Up…..

….with all the folks trying to feed him from their hands

This little guy decided to go back to chewing on bark rather than approach the kids trying to feed him from their hands.
