This may seem like a totally obvious tip, but it is so true! And it’s even more true when you’re using a digital camera — after all, you can just delete the ones you don’t want. :)
I was going for a walk along the San Francisco Bay with a friend when I took these. She thought I was more than a little nuts for taking so many photos, but then I showed her how many were bad — because the cute critter moved, or I had the camera settings wrong, or something. And then she was convinced.
It’s really liberating, actually. It gives you the freedom to play with light.
By the way, anyone know what kind of critter this is? My friend said he was a rat. But I’m thinking no way! He’s too cute to be a rat. Update: Thanks to Rachel for letting me know — it’s a California ground squirrel! I just knew it was too cute to be a rat. Mystery solved.
Hope your day is filled with sunshine and cute critters,
