Floating... and Not!

Yesterdays photo walk was a challenge for my aches and pains as well as subject matter. The good news (for me) was that it was relatively pain free and I think I have some interesting photos... let me know.

First of all I stoppedĀ over the zoo pond and looked down at last years leaves drifting around. Unbeknownst to me the camera was set to movie mode so I hope you enjoy this 4 second video. šŸ˜Ž

Here are some other shots from yesterday.

I like this one because of the "layers" involved with the leaves on top of the water, the water, and the stuff on the bottom of the pond.

And then there were these love birds on the bridge over the river. You can see the love the female has for here mate just in the way she is looking at him.

This final picture was something that provoked the question of why.

The circumstances of this picture is that it is on the river bank, someone obviously fished this bike out of the river after it had been there a year or longer and then setting it against a retaining wall. It was just so weird that I had to take a picture of it.Ā

You never know what will present when taking a walk and you have some good examples of that in your photos, Bob. It makes me wonder if the bike was stolen and tossed into the water and the lovebirds here are a light grey and white.

God put so much beauty around us it is hard to take it all in Wanda Kubat-Nerdin - Wanda Can! I often see bikes in the river and I'm sure they were stolen by kids who didn't know what to do with them after stealing them.

That's a rusted bike for sure. I wonder what the story is...

And that female bird could also be a little annoyed with the male.

Fun photos! Thanks for sharing.

Thank you Myrl Jeffcoat . I think I may have to go back in the early AM hours so I can get a pic of the bike with the sun shining on it.

Raymond E. Camp last year was the first year in many that I was in a boat and although it was a short fishing trip it brought back many good memories.

You made me laugh out loud with your comment about the birds Kat Palmiotti ... the male has red eyes so maybe he was out carousing the night before.

These pictures were taken with my best camera as the whole purpose of the walk was to be a photo walk Nina Hollander, Broker . Although I amĀ always sure to have a camera with me (beyond my phone) I do miss many opportunities because I always seem to be in a hurry.

I agree Doug Dawes . Getting out and communing with God's creation, even for a short time, is a great way to adjust ones attitude.
