… make for some beautiful effects when shooting on the water, creating a serene and muted ambiance that it is not possible to get on those sunny days we are known for here in Arizona. I am making great progress going through the portfolio and whilst going through the Waterfowl folders I came across this shot of a Coot diving for food … the reflections, and splashes with the reflections of a mostly grey sky gave it a nice feel, so here it is … kinda fit my mood for the day and this shot will remain in the portfolio for a long time to come.
Wednesday will see more cleansing of the portfolio and hopefully a good start on answering emails … not much else planned for the day, but I’m sure that there will be some unexpected events and visits and they are always welcomed. Maybe a quick tour of the ponds late afternoon … call it the usual planned/unplanned day I usually have … it is so nice not having appointments set for weeks in advance and a practice or business that constantly calls for attention.
Have a beautiful day and bring some beauty into the lives of those you meet and greet today … so much better than flipping a rude driver off … I do have some photos I took about 10 years ago when Corky and I were leaving a doctors office in Phoenix and we saw the root structure of a Eucalyptus tree that was the perfect hand with the middle digit extended … it rather went with the day we had, had and gave us both a great laugh. Maybe I’ll send one of them out some day as they do give you a hint that nature has a sense of humor.
Give me to gladly go
My way and say
No word of mine own woe;
But let me smile each day
