we took a long walk today around one of our favorite ponds and with my shoulder feeling a bit needy and weak, i left my camera at home. of course this is where murphy's law always comes into play and if you're a photographer, you already know how the story goes…in fact you've personally written a few paragraphs yourself for the "once again, i left our house without my camera" book.
watching a blue heron stalk its lunch in a pond is so exciting. watching that same heron catch three fish right in front of you, with the last fish being so huge you can almost hear the heron gulp as he swallows it…is well, fascinating.
so, i don't have any photos of the beautiful heron we saw today, but almost as good are these nature photos i took last week when we were on out driving on some bumpy and winding backroads enjoying a beautiful spring day. not.
oh well…at least today is ingrained in my memory…and next time, shoulder pain or not, my camera will be coming with me. hello camera backpack….why don't i use you for the workhorse you are and free you from the dark closet you're holed up in feeling unloved. ugh...smacking forehead.
ps…in my last post, what i saw was a boar's head…minus the apple usually stuffed in its mouth.
