A DIARY OF MY LIFE

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Devon based British wildlife photographer Jackie Freeman was inspired to the art of the camera by her great friend, the outstanding news and natural history photographer Allan Hillery.

 Here on her web site, she presents us with a unique ongoing portfolio, a pictorial diary of fascinating images, capturing the special moments in her life. The birds, animals, flora and fauna she loves to photograph.

My great friend Allan Hillery is the British photographer who first opened my eyes to photography as a hobby a few years ago. I thank him for the pleasure it brings me.

I Now rarely travel anywhere without my camera, be it to distant places across the world or around my home county of Devon for fear of missing a photograph of something remarkable. And it's quite remarkable what you see when you least expect it.

It was a treasure to see Black bear turning stones, searching out fresh water crabs for their breakfast on a shoreline, or sharing a few special moments with grey seal on their isolated rocky outcrops off Tofino, which is a picturesque hamlet on the east side of Vancouver Island, British Columbia.

Even in our garden, the local residents of the animal kind seem keen to get in on the act by posing for photographs.

The baby Robin on the right is having a ball in the bird bath.

Our friendly male pheasant too, who adopted us years ago, now has a son who's an equal poser to his older and wiser male pheasant father and loves his photograph taken. So of course so did the baby Robin who gave me endless joy whilst bathing for the very first time in our garden in Winkleigh. PLEASURE!

^ This freshwater crocodile is absolutely real and an animal you wouldn't wish to tangle with in the wilds of Queensland. A little unnerving to say the least, was the fact that I didn't know if I was looking at the crocodile, or the crocodile looking at me?

Early one wet March morning we went out with the Legendary Captain Jamie  from the Whaling Station in Tofino up in the Pacific Rim National Park on Vancouver Island.
We were in search of illusive Black Bear who make their presence known when the tides are low. They roam the shores of the inlets in search of their favorite delicacy, the Rock Crab and seem to ignore the boats full  of camera addicts trying to get the best photograph.

A photograph is more than a memory of a moment for me, it 's more an art form all of its own to share.

The perfect example is the photograph of the bicycle in the snow below,. taken by my friend Allan Hillery in Scandinavia.

 

My new found friend, photography became a fine and almost compulsive hobby for me and a hobby I love as much as the photographs of special moments I try to capture and sometimes get.

I love them all, be it an animal, a flower or a simple photo of  a family friend.

My new digital camera, introduced to me by my husband David one Christmas to replace my more traditional

35 mm. Minolta beast (which I loved by the way) was an alarming learning curve of the ultimate kind for me in the beginning.

I have to admit that I couldn't understand a word that the Sony photography buffs had written in the technical instruction manual which was supposed after all, to have helped me learn the ins and outs of my new Sony Alpha 100 camera and its many intricacies.

It may as well have been in Chinese though and it was far easier to throw away the instructions and just have a go at the settings myself.

The Sony Alpha 100 that I have had now for a couple of years finally gave up the ghost a month or so ago and packed up completely for no apparent reason.

Unusual they say, for a main circuit board to die. And with Sony's silly money repair quote of over £500.00 to fix it would you believe, it was a darned sight simpler to go to Devon Camera get a new Alpha 200 which is great.

My other camera may be less sophisticated but is brilliant to have handy.

It's another Sony, the lightweight Cyber shot and ridiculously easy to use.

Well done Sony!
I hope you enjoy some of the images I have captured and share with you here on my site.
