Flight Sight

Photo by SnaggleTooth Mar 2009 .
The gulls always seem so close sailing by me, when I click them, but so far away in the pic back at home. The final crop ends up as more of a graphic silhoutte, but at least not a total blur as other recent tries at the capturing the motion. When you consider the sunlight made seeing anything in the dispay impossible at the time, it's amazing I even got them in the frame...
They play a good "Follow the leader" game.
There's a "Skywatch Fridays" thing going on as advertised at David's recent post in case you're interested in doing a weekly post project. I don't sign-up for any of those weekly things, cause I hate following schedules. (Note this fits with the theme, but it isin't Friday). I like following other people's ideas tho- like at Carmi's he's got a "Caption This" contest which always has me giggling at the comments due to folks great, silly ideas. I'm a past Honorable Menschen. The current one has me stumped at the moment tho.
In blogging it's easy to get ideas to post by playing Follow the Leader of posts seen elsewhere. What amazes me, is when I finally go read put off stuff, n discover people wrote similar themed or titled posts about the same time I had! Is this only co-incidence, or Follow the Leader? It's a tough call, but in blogging, it doesn't really matter. Common social experience increases the odds of folks similar ideas. Everyone has a unique opinion to add.
I wonder when the public's novel ideas n words to post will become exhausted. There's so much specialized info posted out there by experts already. So many folks of differrent regions of the planet's cultures actually teaching n relating to each other through the blogger-net. The ability to add our piece into the puzzle of what makes us all tick, makes us want to be part of the loop, to play a part.
This post just jelled all by itself, after deciding to put the gull pic up, totally unplanned to end up as a Follow the Leader game themed post, due to the comp of pic subjects, n recent blog reads. I could've just related my over-tired, low-key day...

It's fun when you do a "point and shoot and fingers crossed shot" and see what develops (pun intended). I love shots looking out onto the horizon...the gulls adding just the right touch of movement.

Like you, Snaggle, I wonder when the novelty will wear off...but then a lot of blogs I've visited seem to burn out by themselves.

They say "great minds think alike"...and they also say that "immitation is the sincerest form of flattery" and I think there's a melding of the two in the blogging world quite often...

Neo, Of course if my post could be related to the blurred images as yours can be sometimes, I might post some. Lately the birds n wind have been giving digi-cam a run for the money-

Talon, My cam doesn't give me a good review of the shot large enough to tell how it'll look on puter, so alot get deemed "unworthy" when back home.
So many bloggers have pooped out after a year or two, very sad for me as the reader! (I miss them)
For instance, a couple weeks ago I was reading a religious book called "By the Stillness," n I wrote a post "Stillness," then discovered so had a couple other folks I read!

Interesting philosophical post about writing being exhausted. I think that on technical things there is probably only so much that can be said.

But on more creative blogs, like yours, I think the creativity can go on forever, in complete agreement with the "everyone has a unique opinion to add." Is so surprised me when I first started blogging wiht comments, the things that people would say so diferent from what I thought could be said. Now I always expect the unexpected! Keeps it spicy.

Great shot! (As always.)

JanF, thanks for believing in my creative abilities, as I believe in yours, of course!
The addictive aspect of commenting is what surprised me when I began ESR, as well as diffent dialogues. At first tho, I was doing all the commenting elsewhere. Sometimes the direction comments takes makes it more interesting than the post!
