**Just a note, if you're a reader of my principle blog then you'll have already seen my post for today... if you're not familiar with the pictures I am talking about, you can see them in the archives at:
it's Grand Rounds Wednesday and not a clinical day for me, and since in this blog I am focusing on my photography, I thought I
would take a few minutes to highlight the photographer for the majority
of the seal pictures I have been using to make the graphics on my principle blog
the last several days.
Nigel Barker is better known as a judge
on "America's Next Top Model" reality show, but he has been a fashion
photographer for many years after having been a model himself. This
year, the Humane Society of America named him as a spokesman for the
Protect Seals 2008 Campaign. The pictures I have used come from his
website Nigel Barker and the ones that he shot which are used on the HSUS.org website.
traveled to Newfoundland to visit the harp seal nursery and took
amazing photos, then returned a couple of weeks later to catch the
"molting" fluffy white pups. Unfortunately, his last entry chronicles
the return trip several days later when he captured images of the hunt.
an animal lover, and junior photographer, I hope there will come a day
when trips by boat to Newfoundland and the Gulf of St. Lawrence carry
eco-tourists instead of hunters, because I certainly will be one of
those that signs up to see what must be an awe-inspiring sight.
it's back the ED for my next block of shifts. The schedule will be
more physiologically tolerable, a pseudo "swing shift" from the early
afternoon to late evening. We'll see what the day/night brings.
