I am a regular visitor to William Johnson's San Diego Blog site.  The reasons are quite simple

  • He is an outstanding photographer
  • His photos are always accompanied by an interesting story about the subject
  • It taks an in-depth knowledge of his community to know when and where to go with his camera

 You need the same qualities in a real estate broker when you consider the sale or purchase of real estate.  You will be well served with William in your corner.

Size Matters : A Kodak Moment

San Diego Real Estate - My Kodak Moment

This amazing brother and sister act of two baby elephants took place at the San Diego Safari Park this last September. I was on a Photography Safari and catching these two playful baby elephants was a special treat. The hyper activity , especially of the little one was witnessed by only a handful of others in attendance. The photo above was the sisters response to the little male elephant knocking her over and jumping on her. Not about to be lorded over by the little guy, she went charging after him and as you see , finally got the better of him. They had been paying for over 30 minutes and you see  all the grass stains on their knees as they wrestled about in the grass. It might take a significant pre-soak and some extra heavy duty Tide to get those stains out, hehehe. Being so close up to them and having these two lively creatures entertaining was a sight to behold and one I will remember for a lifetime. This was indeed for me at least, a real Kodak Moment. While I have seen a few other baby elephants before, I have never seen two of them wrestle before.

I have since come to know these baby elephant's names and will be going back to Safari park to see them again before the calendar year changes. Since it is Christmas time and Safari Park has a wonderful Christmas Lights presentation through out the park, it will be a wonderful festive time to capture some of the park at night all dressed up for the holidays.

A great picture capturing the moment and how neat to have been there and witness them playing.  The more I learn about elephants and their social/family behaviors I'm amazed.  Actually I believe that many of us underestimate the intelligence of animals.

Hi Karen,

Thank you so much for re-blogging this. And thank you so much for your wonderful compliment. I am still learning but I did learn a few new things this week that I am thrilled about. I can now shoot video and actually make it turn out right on the Nikon, and I now have new a remote ( that actually works) for nighttime shots. Speaking of which, tomorrow night, I will be out in the neighborhood and I'll show you a prize winning decorating job. If my photos come out, they show some wonderful homes decorated for Christmas California style. ( meaning no snow and 6o degree temps at night, LOL.) Nice for the photographer, bad for a beautiful White Christmas. I'm dreaming of one, actually. Maybe New York next year?
