try guessing right now what this is.
Have you guessed yet?
First let me explain the why of this post. I suffer from ICB (insatiable" Curiosity Bump") and have since birth. Th e first thing I think when I see just about anything, is either WHY, WHO, WHEN, HOW. If I were a cat I would find myself way past the allotted "9 Lives".
We came to photograph, trees, beaches and birds (all of which are in abundance at Longboat Pass, Coquina Beach)
We parked the car and the first thing I noticed were the two young men standing on the beach, one held a boom out in the air, the other was fiddling with a contraption in his hand.
"Look, Judy, what do you think they are doing?" "do you think they are taking photos?" "They don't have cameras, but that looks like the thingy they stand behind models" "Quick, let's go sit on the bench and wait and see what happens"
We walk past all this beauty, and sit ourselves down to watch and ponder. (you can guess by now what I was pondering).
We sat and waited for 10 minutes at least and they did nothing. We took a walk down the dunes and the paths, snapping photos of wonder. Worn out after our Back Alley Episode, we head back to the car and There They ARE! Still standing around fiddling.
You can say NO YOU DIDN'T here, since it will be appropriate.
Yes, I DID! I left the path walked over to the two young men and said
"What are you doing? taking photos?"at a nod of yes, I said
"of what and why?"
ONE of them was very nice and answered me, the other one looked at me like I was a crazy old lady off her rocker for asking.
The answer was they were waiting on their models to show up. He said they were shooting an environmental photo for a contest.
Did I say thanks and walk away?
You got it! NO
I said "what kind of photo? I can see you are shooting towards the water and rocks and pier." he politely explained the model would be holding a fishing line with a man on the other end with a hook in his mouth" (say what)
by now I am dying to know if I can see that photo somewhere.
Did I ask? Yes I did. No, I can't it is a private contest.
OH NO! not private! how will I know what happens
All this while Judy patiently waits on the path to the car.
I wish I could end this by telling you The Rest Of The Story, but I just don't KNOW it... boo hoo
Now can you tell?
