One person's view of nature

Galápagos Penguins

We saw a few penguins but I never got to see them swimming in front of me. They were swimming around me it seems. The Go-Pro picked one up, behind me. The Go-Pro overall was a bust for my needs. I wanted a stills camera and that's just an afterthought in its makeup. A few moments too long between stills and the Go-Pro resets itself to video mode. Push the button and you get a video not your anticipated still. And it still runs after that and runs and runs. I was turning it off and on instead of snapping stills. I trailed it behind me as I swam and managed to pick up youthful sea lions cavorting and what appears to be at least one penguin behind me, mocking my imaging. But the camera was bouncing around like an off center basketball. So useless. I sold it.

I really collect no data. I would not know what to do with it if I collected any. This is a vanity website to show off. I do count the number of visitors and visits to see if anyone is looking.
