52 Weeks Of Photo Challenges

A theme based photo blog

47. A Pair Of…


During a recent visit to the Cortez fishing docks I took a photo of “A Pair Of” white pelicans!

A cousin to the brown pelican, the stunning white pelican, is one of the largest birds in all of North America with an impressive 108-inch wing span. They are found throughout the state, but on Florida’s Gulf Coast, between Sarasota and Naples, you’ll find large communities of these wintering visitors. More timid in nature than brown pelicans, they find safer, more secluded environments such as estuaries, lakes, mangrove islands or within geographically protected areas, rather than open water.

Hi, my name is Mindy Towns, I live in Lakewood Ranch, Florida. Along with several friends I have been participating in a weekly, theme based, photo blog since August 2012. Each year we receive a new list of 52 themes. We then post a photo each week that fits one of the themes along with a brief description about why we feel the photo fits the theme. Over the years I have learned a lot about my camera, new photography technics and also a lot about my fellow bloggers. I've peeked into their homes, met their families and traveled to exotic places through their photos. This year I am challenging myself further by trying to become even more creative in my posts. I found the cutest little Playmobil person complete with a camera and a little dog. She is going to be my little personal assistant over the coming months. I'm going to use many of the photo skills I have learned from participating in the photo challenge along with some new photoshop tools I have been practicing. I hope you will continue to follow my blog as I change things up a bit this year. Perhaps some of you will raid someones toy chest or toss something cute into your Target shopping cart and get a little silly with me. If you want to see examples of my grown up photography please visit one of my links listed on this blogs home page!
