October 29. Day 302. Duck off

Some days you just want to tell the world to go take a flying duck. This is one of those days. The get up and go got up and went. Now if it would only take the general feeling of  blah with it, I'd be most appreciative. But it doesn't work like that, does it? There was a mountain of things to do but with no energy to do any of them I decided to take the fur friend for a walk, a very long walk. We ended up at the University of Queensland lakes. Watching the birds is remarkably soothing. I enjoy photographing birds even if my technique is slightly unconventional. I would hazard a guess that I am the only wildlife photographer who works with a canine photographic assistant. There may be others, but their canines probably don't perch on their shoulders. Even on days like today when it all feels a bit bleak it's hard not to have a small smile at the look on people's faces when they realise that is, in fact, a dog sitting on your shoulder. And what's more a fur friend who wants to be right by your side is the friend you need on days like today.
So it was a dog of a day but the dog made it better. Now if the blues could just duck off ...
