Went to the Santa Monica Pier with a friend to take some pics! She used film and got some lovely results.

I kept swapping my lenses – thought I’d like my primes for a little wider view, but I kept tossing on my 70-200. I guess some days you just feel it.

The parrot went wild when I got a little closer, but was fine on somebody’s arm. The guy charged to take pictures with it – I think he trained them to flap their wings a bunch, so you couldn’t get a good picture of them on the perch.

ISO 400, 200mm, f/7.1, 1/1250th. Betcha didn’t expect that, strange animal pier man.
