As perhaps many of you did, I had this past Thursday off from work. Thanks, Veterans! You are appreciated for what you do.
Since I had the day off, I took advantage of some crisp, sunny, weather and actually went for a walk by myself. I was in the mood for some quiet contemplating and picture taking, so I went out without the dogs and got in the car. I drove just a short distance to a little place here in town that I don’t often give much thought to, Spec Pond. Spec is short for “spectacle” because there are actually two small ponds close together that look like a pair of spectacles when viewed from above. I explored this little, local recreation area and came away with some shots that made me happy.

A group of three. What is it about the number 3? Does it contain a certain magic? As photographers, we always try to remember the rule of thirds. Good or bad things are said to happen in three’s. Three is always a special number in fairy tales – 3 bears, 3 pigs, 3 wishes. And out of all the shots of the geese that I took this day, this one of the 3 geese I found most aesthetically pleasing.

It was a peaceful afternoon. Andre and I spent some quality time together. I’m trying out “Andre” for Camera’s name. It was my sister’s suggestion and I think it is kind of cute due to this. Although hubby tried to get my goat recently by saying he has named my camera “EWOT” – expensive waste of time! I disagree!
