"A lake is the landscape's most beautiful and expressive feature. It is earth's eye; looking into which the beholder measures the depth of his own nature." ~Henry David Thoreau
"The sea pronounces something, over and over, in a hoarse whisper; I cannot quite make it out." ~Annie Dillard
"The true peace of God begins at any spot a thousand miles from the nearest land."
Today it has rained all day long.. I'm not complaining.. we need the rain.. I love rain.. it is also cooler.. I love cooler too.. So with all the rain and water standing in muddy puddles around the yard.. it is fitting that the Lens Day Challenge for this week is water. As it happens.. I can ...as they say "kill two birds with a single stone" today!
I can do Sepia Scenes and Lens day together this week.. Not often am I able to make one set of Pictures work like this.. These Pictures were on one of three rolls of film that I found while cleaning out some boxes that were left behind when Cooper moved out.. The other two rolls were heat exposed and worthless.. Dave was Happy to see these photographs that he had forgotten about making....Dave made these pictures on a fishing trip he took with the a group of guys from his job.... They turned out pretty good and looked even better as Sepia Prints..
I am thinking I may print these and frame them to go in the new guest room we are currently making from Coopers old room.. Did you notice the chairs along the bank in the last picture??.
I would love to sit there and watch the boats as they go up and down the channel.. I could watch the ducks swim by and listen to the birds sing from the trees nearby..... Dave could fish for our supper and I could crochet..or knit..read or write poems.. I could even make pictures..We could enjoy resting together beside the water.. Have a great day!
