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

Use it or Lose it


What I see is a couple of Osprey who’ve built their nest on someone’s boat. What I know is I wouldn’t want to be the one who has to evict them.


There is nothing in which the birds

differ more from man

than the way in which they can build

and yet leave a landscape as it was before.

A bird that makes me happy

I needed a picture today that made me feel better. I took this one while on vacation last August at Disney, and I love how the water looks with all of the reflections on the waves. What I see is a pretty, snow-white bird with blue eyes and a couple of black tail feathers just sticking out. But I don't know what kind it is. I also see two black fish in the top left corner. What I think of is a hot, sweaty, crowded, wonderful day spent on my own, just taking pictures and soaking it all in. I also think of how great it felt to join back up with my family at the end of that day and how happy I was to see them.


There are a great many beautiful things

that I’ve experienced in this world.

What a blessing a new day is.
