Who needs a lawnmower when you have goats? Tuilerie Gardens Paris

Tuilerie Goats

A couple of goats “mow” a steep slope in the Tuilerie gardens, Paris, France.

I found this funny.  Cool too.  How does one mow a steep slope?  Some fancy new mower with some patent pending way to keep it from tipping? Nope. Throw a couple of goats on the slope!  Win/win all around!

Louvre Courtyard Pyramids and Lamp HDR


This is a photo also taken during the HDR photo walk with Trey Ratcliff. For me it was still funny that I was there with my puny little camera and tripod while to my right were the fancy tripods and cameras. I just imagine the other photographers wondering what I was thinking. I’m happy with how it turned out. Even without the HDR photos of the pyramids turn out nicely. I may post some later on from my pre-HDR days. My theory for this is that the yellow lights cause the auto white balance to boost blue which in turn brings out the sky.
