    ...Saving The Whales On Cape Cod
    by Mel Tulin (forum contributor)

    What began as a day of great anticipation turned out to be one of mixed emotions. As we were OE Digital Photography  Outdoor Eyes loading the kayaks with our gear, an elderly gentleman stopped by and asked if we knew where the pilot whales had beached themselves. We told him that they had beached at Dennis yesterday, but they were rallied out to sea and were fine. He informed us that he had just heard on the news that they were beached again in Wellfleet Bay. There was no hesitation as we had to go to try to save the whales.  Top
    Saving the whales on Cape Cod.


    My choice in a snowshoe was made after a lot of research. OE Digital Photography  Outdoor EyesI had certain requirements that I needed in a snowshoe and you should decide what you need, too. The main requirement was that the snowshoe had to be versatile enough to take me wherever I might want to go to photograph: rugged climbs or just an easy walk through the woods. Here was my choice of snowshoe. Start researching now before the first winter snow.  Top

    From The Editor
    It Must Be The Camera!

    I have been noticing lately that there is a correlation between the word "Hi" and what you are OE Digital Photography  Outdoor Eyes doing at that particular moment. So, I started doing some experiments to see if I was right in some of my assumptions. I take a walk almost every day around the neighborhood with my wife before or after dinner. During our hour walk, we pass many people along the way. If my wife says "Hi" to them first, they will respond "Hi" back. But if my wife does not say "Hi", the majority of the people will not say "Hi." When we traveled to Colorado to hike the Rockies, almost everyone that we met along the trails said "Hi." We had something in common... backpacks, as we passed on the trails. And when we met kayakers on the water, almost every kayaker says "Hi." We had something in common... paddles, as we passed on the water. Then a light bulb turned on in my head. I bet there is a correlation between the word "Hi" and whether or not a person perceives that you are interested in something that they are interested in. So, the next time my wife and I walked around the neighborhood, I brought my camera. It was in full view as someone was passing us on the sidewalk. Low and behold, about a third of the people said "Hi" to us. It must be the camera! They all must be interested in photography!  Top
