I enjoyed a great day yesterday. One of the highlights of the day was having lunch with Angie and Austin. It took awhile but he finally warmed up to me and we had a good time. It also helped that his Mother was close by and always in quick eyesight of us. 🙂
I finished up a project that I’m doing for our Company’s Christmas Celebration and then decided to take my camera down to the river. Every time I go to the river I think of that singing fish on a plaque singing, “Take me to the river, throw me in the water.” Weird I know.
I always find something to photograph at the river. It was cold yesterday, in the mid 40s and a pretty good wind blowing. I had on a stocking cap and a warm jacket. As I was heading toward the River Center on the River Walk I saw a bride and her bride’s maids posing for pictures. They had a lot of skin exposed and when I went past them I said, “Aren’t you guys cold?”
“Freezing was the reply!” The bride let me take an image of her, which I thought was very gracious. I’m not sure the photographer liked it but she didn’t say anything.
On the way back to the car thoroughly frozen I saw this lonely leaf on the river walk. Its life over, waiting to be blown into the river and taken who knows where to become one with the earth again. Like all things.
That’s it for today. Enjoy your day and be careful.
