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.

Making Lemonade Again

Oct 21, 2020 3 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 3 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 3 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.

Reserved!

Oct 10, 2020 3 months ago

Reserved! I believe we've all seen these signs in various places from parking places to table tops. Sometimes reserved places irritate me! Especially those table top ones! Why should people be able to reserve tables ahead of time? Are they really privileged that much that they can't wait in line like others do? Is their time really so much more valuable than everyone else's? On the other hand, reserved parking spaces for medical personnel, law enforcement and handicapped persons makes total sense to me. There is another "Reserved" designation which I support, and that is my photos are usually reserved for the enjoyment of nature lovers.

Night Skies Again

Oct 07, 2020 3 months ago

Getting this done before it gets any later! It is now 10:56 p.m. Tuesday Oct 6th. I'm not really surprised, but the construction project across the fence from us has progressed to the point that they now have a security guard in a vehicle with a roving spotlight making the rounds after dark, checking buildings and fences for intruders. I also discovered that additional fencing has been put up around some of the local businesses removing access to a few more of the walking trails and at least one geocache location (or perhaps former geocache location) behind a few of these businesses. Since these developments have taken place and further limited photo opportunities, I shall turn to a night mode photo which I can take from my own yard.
