Are you wondering what I mean by “sense of place?” Here’s the scoop. If you follow my blog, you know that I post a (huge) number of birds. I love photographing birds and catching them in action. Sometimes they have the most comical expressions, and honestly, their behavior can be outrageous and sometimes downright risque. However, after posting hundreds (thousands?) of birds just sitting around looking birdlike, I have decided it is time to provide my blog friends with a sense of the place where I take all these photos. I actually have 50,000 images on my hard drive, a huge preponderance of them are birds (or deer), and very few give you a clear indication of their habitat. So from now on I am going to intentionally include more pictures that will provide that “sense of place.” I hope it is a positive addition to my blog. Please let me know what you think.
This morning I was up and out early again. The morning light was wonderful, the birds were active, and I even caught a deer wandering through the tall grass. Hopefully soon I will encounter some fawns to share with you. It’s about time for them to appear. But for today, no fawns, just lots of beautiful birds and some landscape shots to give you that sense of place. Hope you like them.
That’s it for this beautiful Thursday morning walk through Chagrin River Park. Thanks for coming along. I had fun sharing this time with you.

I love the birds, and also love that you are sharing a sense of place, too. It’s such a beautiful park. Great images. 🙂
It seems especially beautiful on these spring mornings.
You are truly blessed to have such a lovely place to take daily walks so close to your home. It looks very peaceful and serene in the early morning light. I always enjoy getting a sense of place, it really adds to my understanding of the photos and the blogger. I loved the tree swallow directing traffic. 🙂
Each place is unique I think. I hope something is added to the blog experience by providing a sense of the uniqueness?..hopefully making each place more special or less generic.
Looks like a beautiful place to take a daily walk. We have a place down here call the Circle B Bar Reserve but I’ve only managed to get there a few time. Great photos Skip!!!
Thanks, Camille. You are in Florida, aren’t you? Anywhere near Ocala? Or am I geographically misplaced?
