Just a few of the images taken today at the Alligator farm and rookery on Anastasia Island St.Augustine. A great opportunity to see old friends and meet new. I’ve been popping in here for quite a few years and it never seems to change. A place where a large number of heavyweight photographers prowl the boardwalks looking for that elusive shot. Armed with massive camera systems and expensive tripod heads that they lug around from one shooting position to another. The sound of shutters actuating at great speed, sounding like machine guns with mufflers fitted fill the air. They haven’t invested in newer camera’s with the latest technology including silent shutter settings yet or mirrorless with fixed professional quality lenses to reduce the weight. It’s still the realm of the bigger your kit is the better it is and of course it’s a status symbol to boot.
