  5. We see families of Canadian Geese around here - they are so adorable. I love the texture of the water, Genie - beautiful.

  9. Even the water is shadowy in this photo! Everything looks so cool and inviting, although it's probably a scorcher of a day!


    COMPADRES

    Shadows above me,
    Shadows below;
    Some shadows swift and
    Some shadows slow;
    All of these shadows,
    It’s plain to see,
    Are my compadres—
    Sweet company!

  10. I like how you composed this. I probably would have made the mistake of positioning the geese up higher in the frame. Well done.

  13. Ohh! Great quote, I shall make that my 'duck mantra'. cute little (or not little?) ducks too-- our ducks here are not so interesting. haha

  14. Nice shot. I can almost hear the water slowly making its way to the shore. And looks like you have your ducks all in a row, so you can enjoy the relaxing sound of the water. Thanks for sharing.

  17. Here's a poem for your water!



    FEEL THE WATERS’ HEALING

    If you’re stressed and weary
    Try a thing or two:
    Go down to the river,
    Take a friend with you;
    Take your shoes and socks off,
    Plunge in twenty toes—
    Feel the waters’ healing
    As the river flows!
