Q: I am really into my wildlife photography but cannot afford a super zoom lens, I have a 300mm and am considering a teleconvertor. Has anybody had a experience with these and would you recommend them?

A: Do you know?

Funny....when uploading this shot, I was thinking more on the line of counting the many triangles I could find; however, it gave me a flash of childhood-- when we would sit under these types of open air bridges, and count the number of cars travling over. We had a sense of safety neath the bussle of the world, yet not too far away. The sounds of the rubber tires on the metal acted as some sort of meditation, as did the silence in between vehicles. That silence created a sense of anticipation within the still, while waiting for the next sound of civilization to pass over. The same silence hightened our listening skills to hear all of the secret sounds that nature makes in its normal day's activities. I'm still counting, and listening.

    Wonderful recollections from the past, such fun it must have been.. No shortage of triangles here, it would take a whole childhood to count them.. perfect entry!!

    It was a different time Jim... much of it lost forever. I close my eyes and see my hiding place under the bridge in town. I loved to go there on hot summer days. It was so cool. A place where I practiced being alone.

    This reminds me of the acoustic ceiling tiles that were so popular when we were kids. I used to think the holes were there to collect words and sounds. The other rabbit that ran by when I looked at this was what my nephew called triangles when he was little.,, trigingles. I love toddler vocab.

    great shot! ...wonderfully composed... emphasizing dynamic geometry at play ... Your narrative makes clear the truth of those times that so many must have experienced, and at times still do. There is such a universal ring to your very well worded narrative...one's life is filled with so many seemingly ordinary occurrences that have profound depth and windows of enlightenment if we give the time over to the senses, and let our loose our imagination
