oh what fleeting moments I should capture, oh what memories I should still possess

Geese

I’m just enamored of the geese that live on the pond behind my sister’s house!  Babies have hatched since my sister moved in, and they are growing so fast.  It’s interesting to see the family units traveling together, including one family that has a “grandma”.  At least that’s what my niece calls her.  The other families all have two adults, but she’s an extra in her group.  And she clearly leads the way.  She’s also the only one with coloring different from the black and white all the other geese wear.  She’s bold and beautiful, and she swims all the way up to the little dock.  How can I not take her picture?  The white geese are just as brave, though they don’t come around as often as the others.  But I was able to get some photos last visit.  I couldn’t resist sharing some of my geese pictures, and I hope you like them.


Peek

What I see is Louis peeking over the comforter to see what I’m up to. What I think is that he doesn’t let much get past his notice.

crab claws as a metaphor for life

I spent last weekend at the river and had the opportunity to photograph the crabs that my dad let go (guess what was for dinner?). What I see is the claw of a female crab, ready for action. What I immediately thought when I looked through the viewfinder was, “the teeth on that claw look just like my dog’s teeth”.

People are pretty much alike.

It’s only that our differences

are more susceptible to definition

than our similarities.
