Hiking through the woods the other day, I came across this tree. It reminded me of the old saying, “As the twig is bent, so grows the tree”. Our childhood upbringing has a lot to do with the kind of adults we become.
It seems our city is getting more and more wall murals painted on the buildings these days. I sure like it a lot better than the graffiti splattered on bridges and railroad cars. It takes talent to create something like this. Graffiti only requires a can of spray paint. Of course, I know some taggers who would disagree.
This is one river which has so many different types of scenery along its route and offers many opportunities for a variety of photos. I’m not someone who is into a great deal of walking. That’s why when I want to take some photos in as short a period of time as possible, I photograph different areas of the river close to my house.
I’ve made several trips across the state line to Falls Park in Idaho and I always seem to see things I didn’t see the last time. I guess that is part of what they mean by developing your “photographer’s eye”.
This photo was taken the day before Easter. Someone had placed Easter lilies in the hands of the statue. I was struck by the coincidence of the reflections in the glass mirroring the seeming reflective mood of the statue. Perhaps it is a reflection of the meaning of Easter.
