9-15-13 The FBI/NSA Drone Plan Comes To Wellfleet?

An object flew over Wellfleet Harbor at low tide on Sunday. At first I thought it was a remote control toy helicopter but it certainly didn’t fly like one. I asked a woman if it belonged to her kid and she laughed nervously and said her 6 year old didn’t have a drone and she had no idea why Wellfleet had one.

I unfortunately only had my 85mm not the 300mm so couldn’t get in really tight. Thoughts? Helicopter? Drone? Other?

11- 8 -12 Travel Theme: Soft

Ailsa’s theme for the week: Soft

I think the hardness of the helicopter nicely sets off the softness of the clouds over the river.

I do love what a few simple adjustments of subject and shutter speed can do to an image.

I think my favorite shot of the day…

For we can fly we can fly

A beautiful morning. Abigail got off to school in good time, looking sharp – first day and all – and then I drove Katherine downtown to an appointment on the East Side. We figured we might spend a few minutes at the greenmarket before the appointment and then I would head out to an Audubon Sanctuary about an hour away.  At 9:30 on a Thursday the drive downtown should not be more than 20/25 minutes.  An hour and 10 minutes later, Katherine got out of the car to walk the last two blocks.  I do not know but I am guessing this had to do with increased security because of the upcoming events on Sunday. Traffic heading back uptown was not as bad but still wasn’t good and I had to be back in the city by 2pm so I decided to stop at Inwood Hill Park, a tranquil, quiet and beautiful spot on the northern end of the island that I have written about before.

It was not as quiet as usual.
