Ivy + James: Swan Song

What might be my last engagement session of the season was with a very cool couple, James and Ivy.  We spent a recent evening in downtown, making a nice collection of images.  While shooting at the Leahy Mall, Ivy warned me that swans can be vicious.  I shrugged off her warning a little bit; afterall, I had photographed in this same spot near the same swans maybe a dozen other times without problem.

Sure enough, this would be the time the swans decided to take issue with my invasion of their space.  More than once I had to stand my ground.  Okay…more than once I had to retreat.  It really wasn’t such an issue except for images where I was shooting low to the ground with my back turned towards them.

Pesky backstabbin’ birds!
