Dear Joseph and Lucia,
I had a long weekend up in Oklahoma. I attended the memorial for my deceased roommate, Tina. Jeff asked me if I could make a CD with a few songs for the ceremony. That ended up making me the DJ. I played lots of Enya and finished with “Angel” by Sarah McClachan. It was a somber and quiet time.
On Saturday, I visited the local park. I was disappointed when I saw all the flower beds empty. I hoped they would plant fall flowers, but no. So instead, I focused on the water and trees. The picture above is a favorite of mine. The tree in the foreground is beautiful. It’s juxtaposed by the one behind it covered with ivy. I love the contrast.
Lastly, I had fun with the ponds. I played with various settings on the camera to try to get the effect I wanted. It was early in the morning and a clear sky. I couldn’t ask for a better scenario. Only a few more flowers.
Enjoy the pictures. I’ll be here waiting for you… ready to see how much you’ve grown.
