Sitting On The Dock Of The Bay

From For Ellipsis

"When one man, for whatever reason, has the opportunity to lead an extraordinary life, he has no right to keep it to himself."

-Jacques Cousteau

I told you last week about a day, Alan and I spent recently, playing tourist, well, this was just one more sight from that day, the sea lions at Pier 39. It was a really warm day and they were just sitting on the dock, soaking up the late winter sun. I had forgotten how much fun it is to just stop and watch them being sea lions. Simple. Happy. Life. I tend to see things differently when I am out with my camera. My camera allows me to have an extraordinary life.

They remind me of the sea lions in Newport, Oregon, where I will be spending some time in just under 10 days. I just love those creatures! Great shots, m'dear!

This reminds me of a trip my family took to the West Coast a few years ago (circa 70's - lol) and at the Sea Lion Caves, my sister got a nice big ole fishy smelling kiss from a sea lion.

One time I am GLAD I didn't get chosen from the audience to participate.

I know precisely what you mean. I see things in a completely different way when the camera is along. And even when it's not, I often see things differently because of it.
