street photography jealousy shower nikon capture composition minimalism

I was photographing this girl at the beach shower and her husband glared at the camera.  Makes for a good narrative, and one that I had not planned.  Question is:  Do I mind when when this kind of interaction happens?  No, I don't mind at all.  It would not have been a worthwhile photo otherwise.  Narrative makes the picture.

parrots cayman parrots birding in the cayman islands caribbean nikon photography

This is a pair of Grand Cayman Amazon Parrots (subspecies of the Cuban Amazon Parrot) right behind my house. They are a talkative Amazon, quite rare on these islands.  Cayman Brac is home to the rarer still Cayman Brac Amazon (quieter, one inch shorter).  They are lovely birds and it's a real joy to hear them in the morning (and evenings!).    It was overcast on this day and the clouds diffused the light to - well, a kind of photographic perfection.
