Nags Head Pier

nagsheadpier
Every morning I get coffee and breakfast at Nags Head pier to start my day. This is my favorite part of being home and not on the road, as many photographers tend to travel most of the year. Birds are usually my only (and most welcome) company.

  • What a nice relaxing photograph! I can almost feel the calm, early morning atmosphere.
    I hope you weren’t feeding that gull any junk food to get such cooperation.
    But then he’s probably just another local hanging out.

  • SKIWAVES

    no feeding although i think he/she might have been eyeing my blueberry muffin i had on the railing with my morning coffee….i have the hardest time getting birds in flight to look right…oftentimes the wings look awkward as you know…so this was a lucky break and especially with my iPhone…

    come see me…

    cheers, david

  • To look right and to get it focused while in flight. Lucky indeed. But I’ve always said that being a good photographer is getting yourself in position to get lucky. :-)

  • Civi Not a falcon just a crow in the desert pecking out the eyes of dead sheep
    ps are you sure that you don’t have too much time on hand ……..making lists

  • a civilian-mass audience

    “The time is always right to do what is right.”
    Martin Luther King

    and it feels right to me…and IMANTS,not a falcon,not a crow…YOU are a Vultur gryphus and I love you !!!

  • Great thing with the birds, Civi. I don’t think I’ve ever taken the opportunity to thank you for all you do here. So thanks.

    Although the candlestick bird is not what I would have chosen for my avian avatar, I feel humbled and undeserving that you have bestowed such an honor. Figuring it means you see my work as a light in the oppressive darkness that hangs over so much of photoland these days, I would have expected the honor to be bestowed on a great teacher like David or someone at that skill level who helps so many. Given the often hyper-critical nature of my comments about the works of others, I would have thought myself more likely to be tarred and feathered as a predator who swoops out of the sky and gobbles up poor mice and other small rodents. Had I know you were making such a list, I would have guessed you’d tag me as an Archaeopteryx, if not a Raphus Cucullatus.

    I’ve heard people say that those who can’t do, criticize. The obvious comeback is that those who can’t do, whine about criticism. Then there are many who say that those who can’t do, teach. Or that those who can’t teach, teach photography. The way I see it, all of that’s just a bunch of sour grapes. Some people can do and teach and teach photootraphy and criticize. It’s okay to criticize any particular criticism, but to criticize the criticism itself is unfortunate. Literature, Film, and Fine Arts such as painting and sculpture have long history of insightful criticism. Photography could benefit from a whole hell of a lot more of it. Certainly not less. Photography criticism, at least what I see of it, is too much of a circle jerk and is generally treated by the art world accordingly.

    Not that it could use a lot more criticism by me. David once accused me of hating everything, and while that was a bit unfair, in spirit it wasn’t too far off. Of course I don’t hate everything; my hate is generally limited to things like racism or child pornography that any decent person would consider vile and any educated person should recognize, or at least question when questionable. These days, I try to offer only constructive criticism to work I generally like but feel could be better. Still, it hurts some people’s feelings and I hate to do that. But I figure those who are genuinely doing excellent work, and usually have won a shitload of awards, should be able to take it. Should appreciate it, actually.

    I guess a lot of how people criticize is based on how well they take criticism. I think a big part of my problem, such as it is, is that I appreciate, and even enjoy, criticism of my own work. I’m genuinely thankful when someone takes the time to figure out exactly what’s wrong with my work and explain it coherently. Sometimes I think they’re just missing something, but often they see things I’ve missed and make good points and I consider them and learn and thanks to that do better in the future.

    Back to the birds and photographers, I rebel against the idea that the predators are what we should all aspire to be. I think Imants has the right idea. The crow is the smartest bird we know of. They have a complex language and, like humans, they have developed different languages in different geographic regions. And the owl, of course, is a much better role model than an eagle. Owls are considered wise. Eagles are just killers. But if I were to assign a bird to the great photographers, I’d go with the Condor over any of the predators. They both fly gracefully and high, but great photography is more an act of feeding on the dead than killing the living. But I suspect many of the lesser, as we see them, birds are even better role models. I’d be happy if I really were a Numerius Americanus, one shining a light rather than one where the light is shined on me. Or maybe I’m just a pigeon, perching on a high branch over your driveway to shit on the windshield of your bright and shiny new car? We all have our functions.

  • And you, Civi, must be the most beautiful and wise bird of all. You must be the Phoenix, ever rising to beauty and thoughtfulness toward others from the midst of the flames and turmoil that surrounds you.

  • You really are fantastic Civi. Can’t believe you put that effort in, plus the additional effort to pick the Iowa state bird for me. Interesting side note, those actually are not found in Iowa.

  • Surprised nobody asked to be Sam the eagle: http://youtu.be/iCVmKN5At_o

  • CIVI!!

    Wow!! I’m a Spanish Imperial Eagle. That’s amazing because I’ve got what’s probably a close cousin of the Aquila adalberti who’s been soaring recently over my favorite woods. My next door neighbor who’s an ornithologist told me what species of eagle they were but I just can’t recall which one.
    CIVI you’re amazing thanks for the amazing job :)

  • PS: Superb photo, David.

  • a civilian-mass audience

    I am speechless…you are truly amazing people because you took the time to find out what is behind your “weird” names !!! and I know,believe me I know our time is priceless (yes,IMANTS)!

    MW,you are indeed an academian …your “extra” analysis is what makes YOU,”we all have our functions” after all !

    BRIANF…geez,not found in Iowa,pfff…got to update my resources!

    FROSTYYYYYY…happy birthday,King Penguin…I know,you are flightless but inside the water you are insanely agile…Enjoy!!!

    PAUL…I believe I have seen a picture of this cousin…3 years ago,hmmm…oh,well,my leftover brain cells:)

    THANK YOU ALL…I know,that you can fly ,it’s all about your Vision
    Goodnight from Broken,beautiful Greece!

  • Civi,
    I would expect everyone look up to see what you called them. As for the long-billed curlew, I’ve only seen one a few times, but frequently see their smaller cousin, numenus phaeopus.
    How clever to see if everyone’s awake.

  • a civilian-mass audience

    SKIWAVES…
    …catharus means “clean” in Greek and when I check your pictures…I see “clear,clean” vision…therefore I got you this bird…
    I don’t know how you look or how you sound though…” Catharus fuscescens, of northern U.S. and southern Canadian woodlands, with a distinctive, downward sliding song… This bird has a breezy, downward-spiralling, flute-like song, often given from a low and concealed perch. The most common call is a harsh, descending vee-er, which gave the bird its name”…hihii

    WAKE UP BURNIANS…you are ALL flying…

  • a civilian-mass audience

    SKIWAVES …you are still MR.M.HALMINSKI…am I right?

  • that would be correct

  • Civi, the sources are just fine. That is the state bird, but oddly, is not found here.

  • Civi

    Years ago I was at a seminar with the very brilliant late photographer Dean Collins.
    Collins was a master of lighting, and could create any kind of look he wanted no matter what the circumstances. He characerized photographers who could only use available light and had to wait for the right light as being like vultures, who had to wait for something to die before eating. Then he said “me?, I’m like an eagle, I just go out and kill something”.

    That being said, I’m happy being an Oyster-catcher, the world my oyster.

    P.S. I did notice that there are no turkey vultures, cuckoos, chickens, dodos, peacocks, or eagles on your list.

  • a civilian-mass audience

    GORDON,

    I am gobsmacked …bravoooo!!! no chickens,no peacocks…but everyday we have new BURNIANS and I am 100%
    sure I forgot so many names…hihii,cuckoos and vultures are waiting to fly !!!

    BRIANF,SKIWAVES …thank you for your report…

    P.S I love the new BURNING DIARY … we are Flying !!!
