Ernie Not Bert

One of the neat aspects of this blog is meeting people --- all of you in the CDP blogosphere, those that I've accosted for random street portraist and....my neighbor, Ernie (not Bert).  Shortly after I moved into the neighorhood nearly six years ago, I met my neighbor Ernie.  He literally lives next door and yet I could probably count on one hand the number of times we've actually seen each other.  Then, this past Christmas I was in my driveway, camera in hand, when Ernie pulled up.  He spotted my camera like a heat seeking missile.  Turns out he's quite the photographer with an impressive blog of his own:  ErnieNotBert.  Not only does he shoot incredible wildlife photos, but he's an avid collector of Christmas music.  The guy hunts down old vinyl, rips it and shares it on his blog during the holidays.  It's amazing.  If you like Christmas music, check out his blog between Thanksgiving and Christmas.  Now, getting to this photo...about a month ago we hit the downtown farmers market for a quick photo shoot.  I'd never been out shooting with someone before and it was fun.  Hope this shot doesn't reveal too much of you, Ernie!

I need onions, I wish I could just grab one. More to the point :-) this is a cool portrait of a blogger!

Ernie has some really fabulous macro flower shots. And he even has a sense of humor! I got together twice with two blogging buds and we had a great time. Nobody gets irritated when you stop suddenly or change the conversation. And then of course there always just that little bit of competition in comparing photos!

Well, at least he's not Bert!

There is actually a Bert Not Ernie blog out there. He's not very prolific, though.

What? A CDP blogger actually TALKING to a human? And, taking a PICTURE of a person? And, if I read correctly, even going on a shoot TOGETHER. SRQ, your management needs to have some sharp words with YOU!!!

I insist that you repost that link sometime around Thanksgiving. I love Christmas music.
