spring is on the ground


spring is on the ground, originally uploaded by gawdessness.

Even in the house and through closed windows, I could hear birds singing like mad outside.

A definite sign of spring and a great opportunity to finally get some pictures of the feathered fiends.

Grabbing my cameras I headed out to find them - and didn't.

Sure, I could hear them, everywhere - but actually taking pictures of them proved not all that successful.

Instead, I looked down into a huge, still puddle, just as I was about to step in it and pulled back and took a shot of it instead.

Later on I took some of the sunset and some more of bridges but this
ended up being the one I like the best from today.

I wish spring were headed my way...

Seriously though I like the perspective.

I love that you captured this. It looks like a water color painting.

Kind of MC Escher-ish. Reflections are cool. Good eye.

When I ask to photograph someone, it is because I love the way they look and I think I make that clear. I'm paying them a tremendous compliment. What I'm saying is, I want to take you home with me and look at you for the rest of my life.
