Default remains of the day: turtle party, tomatoes and some chevys

so took the 70-300mm out with the intention of finding something to shoot...

first I looked for the geese that have been around the neighborhood lately but didn't find them...

so I took a couple of shots of the tomatoes in the garden..

these are a variety called sungold and they are our favorite snacking tomato, if you garden you should give them a try

then I stopped on my way to pick up my teenager from practice and shot these turtles having a sun bathing party on this lump of something...

I took about 6-8 shots of these four turtles sun bathing together but most were meh quality so this is the best and it was cropped...

then I got to the school and they were having a classic car show later that afternoon and these two chevys were early so I took the opportunity to shoot a few shots of them for my classic car fans here, although I did it from a distance as it would have been very embarrassing for my teenager to come out and find me knelled down shooting "some old car"...

....the red ear sliders are truly fun turtles to photograph and there are so many of them, everywhere. It must have been Chevy weekend, we had a nice '54 pickup and a couple '57s plus a bunch of Corvettes at our local last night.

How'd you do that license plate?

Bob - I used the clone/swap tool to clone part of the license plate over another part of the license plate. I did two clone/swaps with the circular shape and found it garbled enough.

Nice shots. Too bad you couldn't get close to the turtles, would have been a great close up.
