I'm a hobbyist photographer in the Los Angeles area. I mostly go for scenic #photography, nature or architecture. I also look for funny/odd sights, and cosplay photos at comic conventions.
I took a break from errands and went to the bluffs above the beach to watch boats and seagulls. It was super windy, and the seagulls were hovering in the updraft...and riding the wind *sideways*!
That, and the usual wheeling around, made them difficult to catch on camera.
This is amusing.
SmugMug has been slowly disentangling #Flickr from Yahoo over the last few months, and they have planned downtime coming up in a few weeks to finish migrating a gazillion photos and videos from Yahoo's datacenter to AWS.
The funny part: They're doing a photo contest where you print out the maintenance notice and "take your photo of the little panda on an adventure somewhere," then post it after the site comes back.

I managed to get out to the local botanical gardens again for a mild hike / photo walk. Large parts of the grounds are designed to look wild, though the plants are all grouped by category and labeled. Other parts are obviously manicured. I also have photos of a snail hidden in a rosemary bush and a lizard that...wasn't very hidden!
