Taffy came for socially distanced visit! by jyokota

Taffy came for socially distanced visit!

With her camera and long lens, of course. Chipmunk, squirrel, flowers, and more! I hadn't seen her since February so it was nice to have an in-person visit in the backyard.

And here's the photo she took of me: http://365project.org/taffy/the-also-ran-ph/2020-05-21
Total fun! A great record of our day together!

Great candid! And I guess size does matter.

How very professional Taffy, no wonder your shots are always so extremely brilliant!
May 24th, 2020  
wow that lens!
May 24th, 2020  
Certainly be 'social distancing' with that lens...
May 24th, 2020  
Lovely to see Taffy! So nice that you had a safe get together!
May 24th, 2020  
Two happy snappers!!

I bet that was a great meet-up. I'm not jealous of that lens at all - much!!

Waving hello @taffy! How lovely to have a visit in the yard from such a special pal.
May 24th, 2020  
lovely shot, I recognise that feeder!
May 24th, 2020  
nice photo, it's nice to have visit from friends after this period, it has a crazy equipment!!!
May 24th, 2020  
Wow, looking at both shots you were definitely taking photography seriously. So glad you were able to catch up.
May 24th, 2020  
Such a wonderful portrait. My goodness you both have some serious lenses! So great you could be “together while apart”.
May 24th, 2020  
Great portrait capture
May 24th, 2020  
Wow, that's some serious lens power.
May 24th, 2020  
wow - that is a lens and a half, and Taffy is wearing it as if it was weightless.
May 24th, 2020  
oh my, taffy, what a very long lens you have! great to see you. lovely that you and junko were able to meet up
May 24th, 2020  
You’re so charming, love that lens too💕👌

Captured the master! So who won the lens contest?
May 25th, 2020  
@taffy -- it was such a fun visit and I'm so glad we finally had photo-fun-time together in person!
@stray_shooter -- never a competition but Taffy's goes to 600 and mine only to 400 -- does that make her the "lens contest winner"?
@gardenfolk @redy4et @ludwigsdiana @koalagardens @julzmaioro @jamibann @30pics4jackiesdiamond @30pics4jackiesdiamond @judithdeacon @dide @777margo @casablanca @pusspup @santina @onewing @louannwarren @leonbuys83 @merrelyn @helenhall @pistache @joemuli
Several of you commented on our lenses. They were the perfect ones for photographing birds way up high in trees, and squirrels and chipmunks at a distance. It's kind of funny that although we are quite similar in taste (look at both of us wearing black and gray head to toe) but Taffy started with Nikon decades ago and my father was a Canon shooter so we have completely different systems and can't share! And as for subjects, we point things out we discover so we can both benefit. We see things differently and capture differently so we have fun comparing afterward. It's been a long and lonely 73 days of social isolation, but I'm hoping summer brings more social-distanced photo fun times. Meanwhile, I'm so thankful for our 365 community for being socially-connected online!

It is so good you can now at least see your friends from afar. You and Taffy sound like @julzmaioro and I - such great photography buddies. Julz has a Nikon and I have a Canon. We love to head off together and have fun - and like you two, we can always get differing images from the same subject. It is so good to have someone with the same interest. The funniest thing happened a while ago on 365 - we both put up an ICM of the same sunrise on the same day (neither had any idea this was going to happen... and we weren't even together in the same place)

That is absolutely wonderful to see you two get together again. But, oh boy, that is one monster lens Taffy's toting. I'd need to work out for while to carry that one round. :)
May 25th, 2020  
Beautiful portrait. It's great that you could meet even over a distance.
May 25th, 2020  
Great environmental portrait and so happy to hear you are visiting again
May 26th, 2020  
Great shot of Taffy and her gear, wow that is quite the lens!
