Re: bird in hand series

Fun stuff. Hi Ernst, the idea and doing the processing is fun... but taking pictures of my hand is a Pain! Stretching one hand in front while the other has to hold the camera and push the shutter and I have to use the viewfinder to see/compose the shot. I am thinking I need to be less Lazy and use ...
