During the week, writer Jon Katz shared that photography was becoming more important in his blog as he was “learning the hard and difficult lesson that sometimes images tell a story much better than my words.” I took that lesson to the next level this week and added sounds to a number of my posts. I am not a writer or photographer and figured that an extra dimension would help convey more about life on the farm.
You can hear a pobblebonk frog, Baudins Cockatoos, and Rumples, Chicken and the Guinea Fowl singing for their supper. The sound I didn’t get was the clapping pigeon as it took me by surprise. I spotted a hover fly for the first time and had to chase a guinea fowl who had got trapped in the goat paddock.
It was a wet and cloudy week so there were not as many sunrise shots and four ducks photobombed one I did get and enacted part of Star Wars 4 as I tried to photograph the morning rays. I got caught in a real cloudburst and almost lost a boot in some quicksand.
