Vaun's Photography

IN THE MOMENT

Bonney Lake , USA

Hello all readers!

I'm Vaun Fiedler and I'm an amateur photographer and writer. I have a Canon EOS Rebel t3i which I sometimes use, but more often than not people will see me with my cellphone, a crystal ball and other accessories.

I'm always ready to offer to take a photo or two for others so they can have everyone in at least one or two photos.

I've encountered law enforcement from time to time because of my enthusiasm for photography leading me to lie down alongside the road for a unique photo! On one occasion a passing motorist had called 911 thinking I was a hit and run victim. The sheriff's department and fire department both responded on that occasion.

I've been mistaken for a child stalker when I accidentally photographed the same mother and child two days in a row! Local police responded for that. I simply deleted the photos of them. The officer said he recognized me from observing me previously and knew my habits of taking photos of flowers and reflections.

I'm currently active on Instagram with links to Facebook and Twitter. I also am writing a book on the Wattpad app.

I'm a son, brother, cousin, uncle, husband, father and grandfather.

Expanding Interests

Feb 20, 2021 2 months ago

It's been some time since I've posted here. With Covid19 still a concern with many of us, I've added a new interest in my life. Well it's not really that new, but it has been quite a long time since I've had guppies and seen their small babies, also known as fry. I used to have Neon Tetras in my 5 gallon aquarium, but now I've got two guppies, a female which last month gave birth to at least 1 fry, possibly two. I have separated the fry and put it in a1.5 gallon aquarium. The first male died and has been replaced and the female is pregnant again. Now in the 5 gallon aquarium are the two guppies, one Cherry shrimp and a snail 🐌. In the 1.5 gallon aquarium are the fry, a Blue Phantom shrimp and another snail 🐌. I have live plants in both tanks. I have read and heard that aquariums require less maintenance with live plants. The photo is of the fry and the snail in the 1.5 gallon aquarium. Stay safe and healthy!

Aquarium Lifestyle

Feb 04, 2021 3 months ago

I recently changed my aquarium from Neon Tetras which had all died, to Guppies. I started out with one female and one male. I added a rainbow shrimp for cleaning the bottom, and a snail for algae control on the glass sides. The female became pregnant, the male died. The female gave birth, not the multiple births I expected, but to just one. Now I need to set up a tank for the baby, called a fry. I have a smaller tank which I can use, I have a heater, but need a water filter and thermometer for the new tank. Shown in the photo is the fry, needing a new home soon for its protection.

Making Lemonade Again

Oct 21, 2020 6 months ago

Monday I was going to climb one of the local foothills, called Mt Peak. But the world gave me a lemon in the form of a flat tire. I got the jack out and was prepared to jack the car up and put the spare tire on, when I realized that my lug wrench wouldn't work on my lug nuts. I ended up walking somewheres around 4.5 to 5 miles to the nearest auto parts store to buy the splined socket and a 4 way lug wrench needed to remove the after market lug nuts. On my way to the store I took the scenic route and got 15 or so photos, mostly of nature. I did discover that my new 4 way lug wrench works rather nicely as a base for my crystal ball. So taking the scenic route was my way of making lemonade out of the flat tire lemon.

A little louder

Oct 16, 2020 6 months ago

A little louder please! It was officially confirmed that my hearing loss in my left ear is around 80%. I have surgery scheduled for the 26th of this month, to put a drainage tube in my ear. Until then, when people speak to me I may find myself saying to them, "A little louder please!". This photo I have selected is one I took this morning. Today is Thursday, Oct 15, and the time is 9:22 p.m.

Backtrack

Oct 14, 2020 6 months ago

I headed out this morning to go to The Grove of The Patriarchs in Mt Rainier National Park, but realized when I was about twenty five miles from home that I'd once again forgotten my Senior's National Park pass. So I promptly canceled my plans. I redirected my goals for the day's photography. Instead of taking photos at The Grove of The Patriarchs, I would instead take photos at a couple of nearby lakes. After all, I would be as likely to find photography subjects around the lakes as I would around big old trees. You've probably all heard the saying, "When life hands you lemons 🍋, make lemonade". My short term memory loss sometimes is responsible for the lemons 🍋 which life hands me. I'm curious, what in your life leads to the lemons which life hands you? The photo chosen for this post was taken at Lake Kapowsin in Washington state. It was windy with some chop in the water.
