Hi, I'm Kelson (he/him), a hobbyist photographer in the Los Angeles area. I tend to shoot #cityscapes, #landscapes & #nature, and occasionally cosplay. Lately I've been taking a lot of nature photos for #iNaturalist and posting some of the better ones here & on Flickr (https://flickr.com/kelsonv).
social distancing, park, photo
Some cities around here have closed parks outright. Others have closed playgrounds and anything else with shared equipment, but open areas at many parks are still, well, open (for now), as long as you keep your distance.
More in my latest blog post:
This bird's new to me: apparently it's an American pipit, also known as a buff-bellied pipit, a small ground-nesting insectivore. I spotted several of them walking around in the grass next to a bike path that's just been closed down, though I could see them from the sidewalk with a zoom lens.
A dove spotted this morning. I just walked around the neighborhood and most of the birds I spotted were on cables like this.
Finally recovered enough from the flu to get out for a walk in the neighborhood (while that's still an option).
I think this first bird (possibly a goldfinch?) was trying to practice social distancing, though the crow in the third photo seems to be doing a better job. The house finch was such a bright red that I thought it had to be another kind of bird until I looked at the photos.
Reposting this because I forgot to switch my camera into DST again & I figure other people could probably use the info: How to adjust the date/time of a photo that has the wrong time zone.
exiftool "-DateTimeOriginal+=1:00" DIR
for going into DST, and
exiftool "-DateTimeOriginal-=1:00" DIR
for going out.

Another shot of #wildflowers from the same hike, closer to the parts of the marsh with water. The purple/white flowers are wild radish.
This one works better when viewed at a larger size. I think I like the yellow fiddlenecks shot better because it works at a smaller size too.
