Today in going for a walk in Como Lake Park, I had no intention of taking serious photographs so I did not bring my Canon along, nor my glasses to see with when I take my photographs. Yet, just because of who I am, I brought my small, light Samsung Galaxy Camera 2 which fits snugly on the belt that supports my carrying case for my CD player and bottle of water.
Well, glad I am that I did bring that camera because I captured some sure signs of Spring! And not only that, I saw Grackles and Robins today!! Oh wow wow wow! I was so busy gawking that it did not even occur to me to take pictures, so you will just have to take my word for it that yes, I really did see these birds today.
While walking in the park I saw this path and wondered what I would find as I meandered down that muddy path. So I decided to go doing my best to keep my sneakers clean. No I did not succeed in keeping my sneaks clean, yet I did find treasure:
Wouldn’t you say this picture was worth getting my sneakers dirty for? That is why soap and water are used. Not a problem!
Continuing my walk I was astonished that in 40°F (8°C), I saw some guys playing tennis. Again I skipped/walked over muddy ground to get to the tennis players and asked if I could take some pictures. Now this is the thing. Without my glasses I honestly could not see clearly my viewfinder, so whenever there was movement on the tennis court, I winged it and took a picture. This is one of those pictures:
Check out the clouds in the sky! Even the Angels were rejoicing that these courageous men decided to play a game of tennis, even though they changed the rules as they went along. Oh how I laughed at their silliness. Thank you!
Checking the time, I knew I had to skedaddle on home to feed my cats. Increasing my pace I headed on home, but one more scene before my eyes stopped me just begging me to take Her picture. So I did and this is what I saw:
I stood there regardless of the time and just drank in deeply. Ahhhhh ….. Spring!!!
Comments will be closed so just enjoy this post. I still have as yet to do so many things before my head hits the pillow tonight. Thank you for coming along on this walk with me!
