Close your eyes, give me your hand and just trust me. Let me take you around my neighbourhood and show you where I love to go. A few steps away from where I live is this little nature sanctuary we call “The pond”, most people call it Settlers Park, but we just call it “The Pond”. We also tend to believe it’s really ours.
I often go for walks there and love to photograph it anytime of the year, as you see this past January it happened to look like this:
Last week while being out with the children, camera in hand I noticed the light. It was an amateur photographer’s dream and I knew I had to take advantage of it. I felt so inspired by all of nature’s simple beauty surrounding me, I went a bit trigger happy with the camera. The ice has all melted, everything is green now and this is what the pond looks like now.
If you promise to stay quiet I can show some intimate moments, where Mr. Duck so busy scratching his under leg itch could not pay me any attention. Poor thing it really looked a bit uncomfortable, I guess that’s the price you have to pay for wanting to always look your best in order to please the ladies 😉
You could also hear this busy-bee of a duck quacking to his heart’s content letting everyone know how he was feeling. Quite a loud noise maker he was, but I did not mind. It was such a beautiful day, he could be as loud as he wanted too.
