What's Wrong With That Picture ? (Photo) Lame Duck and the Nun
Here's a photo of a real-live lame duck taken in Okinawa, Japan.
Before I start shooting wildlife, I survey the background to make sure there are no distractions.
I make sure there are no dump trucks, washing machines or loose gorillas running around.
When the eyeball is peeking through the viewfinder, all I see is the bird's eye.
The camera is on spot-focus.
There is nothing else that matters to me. Just keep focus, dead center on the bird's eye.
Focus, move with the bird and keep adjusting exposure settings.
For all I know, the bird could be showing hooves, claws or be wearing a wedding band.
All I am looking at is the eye; dead-center in the eye.
So, I never knew I was shooting a lame duck, until Doc Graff mentioned it.
A couple of dozen shots of this bird with a crippled foot got thrown away.
Nobody wants a photo of a lame duck.
That's what's wrong with this picture.
She got convicted of busting into a government nuclear compound.
Depending upon who you listen to, she could be locked away for 20-30 years.
It's as if she was some sort of threat to national security.
Makes you wonder who guards those sorts of things. The gal doesn't look like a ninja, to me.
There's probably, not a terrorist bone in her body.
Instead of making her rot in jail they should just send her to Rome.
Maybe, the Pope could spank her or, something.
Take a look. And let me know. What's wrong with that picture ?
