Flickr a Week 52: ‘Llama Love’

What’s not to like about a child receiving a little “Llama Love“? Ian Sane used Canon EOS 5DS R and EF 50mm f/1.4 USM lens to capture the self-titled portrait on March 23, 2019. Vitals: f/2.8, ISO 250, 1/800 sec, 50mm.

About the moment: “Here’s my granddaughter, Penelope, getting a kiss from an unlikely source at Riverfront Park in Salem, Oregon. Full disclosure: I love her wild looking hair”.

Absolutely active, since joining the community-oriented sharing service in October 2008, Ian presents a much more memorable viewing experience at SmugMug, which Flickr purchased in April 2018.

About his shooting style, Ian says: “I’ll photograph anything that’s interesting but my passion is street photography”. Based on his recent Photostream updates, with focus on things rather than people, SARS-CoV-2 (severe acute respiratory syndrome Coronavirus 2)—also known as COVID-19—restrictions ruin street shooting for him. “I live in Oregon and the city of Portland is my playground”. Recent racial riots in the city must pose problems pursuing his craft, too. Don’t worry, 2020 is almost over—and, hopefully, momentous misery stays behind.

Ian also appears in my 2015 series with “Gathering At The Water Cooler“.
