My Shure Beta 58A May 30, 2017 at 07:09PM

When I record to my Mac, for whatever reason, I use this mic. I also have a second of these mics that I use with this one for stereo ambient sound. And I have a pretty good shotgun mic for special occasions.

I even use all of these with my Zoom H4N Digital recorder. … While I am thinking of upgrading to the Zoom H6N.

Ocean Beach Pier.
Some evenings, the sunsets are prettier than others.
If you have a chance, come to California, San Diego, and ask to go to Ocean Beach. I think you will like it very much.

The flowers are pretty.

But, you do know that this is in a tree, and in order to shoot these flowers, one must be looking up? And do you also know that when you are looking at one thing, you may not see another thing because your look is focused elsewhere?

And, lastly, I know you know that birds live in trees.

Bottom line. … Today, a bird pooped in my off camera eye. 😉 … I think he was aiming.

These things? I have no real idea as to their usefulness in any way? Can they be eaten?

They are a little light to be used in a sling shot. They could work on short range slings, but they do not carry enough mass for the long shots.

On a misty day at Fiesta Island, lives several examples of Datura stramonium, known by the common names jimsonweed or Devil’s snare.

This particular flower just asked to kept for a hundred thousand years. So, I took several pictures of it, and this is the one I kept.
