2020/2021 « Arthur Morris/BIRDS AS ART


What’s Up?

I got a few decent Belted Kingfisher images yesterday morning from the car working at 1200mm with the a7r iv. I got a lot of work done on the RawDigger e-Guide and should have it finished today or tomorrow. That will free me up to work on the Canon R5/R6 User’s Guide full time this coming week.

The new pump for the pool was a bargain at only $789.00. The good news is that with the heater/chiller back in action, the temperature of the pool rose an amazing 8 degrees in less than 24 hours. I got back in the water and did my slow 1/2-mile swim yesterday afternoon.

Today — as you probably know — is Friday 25 December 2020. The forecast for this morning is for clear and cold with 10-15mph north winds. If I do head down to the lake, it will almost surely be a short session as wind against sun makes things very difficult for bird photography. Enjoy the day.

Happy Holidays 2020/2021

Jim, Jennifer, and I wish you a safe, happy, and healthy holiday season. May 2021 be a happy, healthy, productive, satisfying, and fun year for your and yours. We hope that it is filled with love, great friends, and lots of photography. Do your best to have a PMA (positive mental attitude). And remember that happiness is choice.

birds as art: The Avian Photography of Arthur Morris/The Top 100

This inspirational e-book, created on a wing and a prayer in less than two weeks back in 2016 — see the Harebrained Scheme blog post here — includes the 67 spectacular images that hung in the Ordover Gallery at the San Diego Natural History Museum in a career-retrospective solo exhibition. In addition, there are an additional 33 images in the spectacular e-book that barely missed making the show.

This exhibition companion e-book makes it possible for everyone to “visit” TheNAT gallery and, in addition, to enjoy seeing my top one hundred bird photographs under one roof. Each image includes a title, the species name, the location, relevant EXIF data, and an anecdotal caption. Click here to order the CD or here to purchase the download-able version.
