A GLIMPSE OF MY TOWN TUESDAYS -- How to Spend a Sunday Morning


Blogger micki said...

It was a beautiful Sunday morning at the park. As I’ve mentioned earlier, and I have still to verify, I believe this lake spans 45 acres. I was shooting ducks with the camera and noticed this event taking place right next to me. Casually I swung the camera over and focused on the fisherman. Swung back to the ducks and waited. When he put his leg up, I knew I had the shot. It was perfect with the cigarette hanging from his mouth. I had to reload after taking a boatload of duck and geese shots to get the last image posted here. (Well, the last one here. I took a couple others.) Right after I tripped the shutter for the last shot, a huge fish jumped out of the water right behind their boat. I hope they had a good catch that morning. After these shots, I finished the roll off on two families of Canada Geese. The young ones were too much fun.

Now that brings back many memories of my childhood out on the river fishing with my dad and grandfather (whom everyone called Catfish). The first shot is particularly nice.

Cool shots Micki. I was supposed to go fishing this past Sunday but I bailed and didn't go. I was too lazy.

The first photograph tells a story, empty hook of the fishing pole, long ash of the cigarette after a long wait, the man's expression. Good focus and nice composition.

Ahhh, I'm relaxed just looking at these. How nice it must be to live in your town with its decided lack of dangerous marsupials.

I see that first shot and somehow it evokes that famous engraving of Socrates and his cup of hemlock - strange, I know.

The last image is so serene - the glassy lake surface and the pronounced reflection of foliage are just the icing on the cake!
