52Frames 2021 - Week 27: Black and White

"Let's Talk"

A simple early morning selfie as I took to the radio airwaves on Friday morning. I'm not normally a talk radio host, but lately I've been filling in when needed at a local station. I'm also not normally a morning person, but I'm making it work. Three hours goes fast behind the microphone between all the weather and traffic updates, advertising, news, and phone calls from listeners - it's usually quite fun. Well except for the time when the power went out! Taking a selfie in the studio is actually quite complicated because the lighting is horrible, but I got lucky on Friday.

I had a hard time choosing which photo to submit this week and all my friends seemed split on the choices too. My other options are below so tell me which you prefer.

My original entry for the week - Ospreys on Guard

Oh my osprey family had quite the day today. I noticed around 10am that only one adult was in the nest with the 2 littles & the nest was under attack by small birds dive bombing them. The adult osprey was flapping & trying to knock the small birds away while protecting the young. I felt so helpless to watch this & in 3 years of the nest being outside on the dock I have never seen it under attack before. The one adult protected the nest for 5 hours by itself with very little time to rest, maybe 5 minutes here or there. Finally the second adult came home & they went through another hour or so & then the smaller birds just left. I really don't know why & what was going on today. Photo on Tuesday, submitted in case I get too busy w/the rest of the week for more pics. Used spotting scope to zoom.

Other photos I considered this week (it was a hard choice for final submission.)

Yes - another big storm rolled through, but should I have entered 2 black and white storm photos back to back?

I'm obsessed with this boat. If it ever goes up for sale - I'm buying it.

This was in honor of our 4th wedding anniversary which happened during the week.
