Andromeda Gail Marches Briskly along the Plesiosaur Trail

Post by Charles Haacker » Sun Apr 15, 2018 1:20 pm

At the Museum on Saturday...

They have the skull and neck vertebrae of a plesiosaurus (a large marine reptile that lived during the early part of the Jurassic) set into the floor under thick glass, sublit, really cool because these things were big, fast, very toothy and always hungry. Andi is not yet actually interested in the animal so much as doing the Yellow Brick Road March up and down it. The quality is poor owing to shooting at some astronomical ISO but I loved the energy and attitude. :D

I was taken with the jaunty swing of her hair as she stepped off. She has her Maine hunting boots on because the temps plunged and it snowed again.

I love the swing of her arms.

She's not looking back at me; she is just looking back, I guess, to see how far she has come.

Thanks, Piet! It hadn't occurred to me that she might be wondering if I were following... :|

Thanks, Frank! I'm always shooting in challenging conditions but sometimes less successfully; but it's the memories... :D

Cute set, well defined by the lighted path she's happily following, until she's not. Perhaps she spotted one of these pretty scary monsters and looked back to be sure you were coming?

The monsters don't seem to scare her one bit. Maybe they will but not yet. :)

Thanks for looking and commenting, Steve. The kid is a walking photo op and I am grateful to have her to follow around. :D
