mannequins

So what am I doing on a breezy Sunday AM ... perusing my keyword list. Found the heads at the Balloon Festival last Sunday, but never got around to developing it. Here, with some retouching in Lightroom is the result. This of course led me to some of my other mannequins.

texture overlay

Texture overlays can transform. Here, a shot of a mask I took years ago in the RISD museum. Several layer masks and blend modes later and it has become something more interesting.

lily pad

Waiting for the swans to no avail. Shot lily pads instead. I like this one with a texture overlay.

light poem

The reeds simple lines reflected in the lake are like a poem of light. The following haiku seems to go nicely...

Behold the ego

Set in glowing emptiness

On the edge of time

Left Behind

I rowed down to the bottom of the cove in a light fog this AM and found Mama Swan with only three cygnets, constantly calling out for her others. Once there were five, now only three, and one chick was clearly sick or injured. This little guy couldn't keep up, and needed frequent rest stops along the morning breakfast swim up the cove. So sad to witness, but finally Mom swam off with the two remaining healthy babies into the center of the lake, apparently abandoning the sickly bird that was lagging behind. I watched this tiny single swim slowly toward the nest, then back towards his mother, confused and alone, and very vulnerable.

A few minutes later Mama did a fly by around the lake, still looking for her other two chicks. Sure enough, about twenty minutes later these two little rebels came swimming merrily up the lake, looking for Mom. Let's hope they find her before dark...

Cotton candy cumulus clouds

Cumulus clouds typically form when warm air rises and reaches a level of comparatively cool air, where the moisture in the air condenses and are often a portent of severe weather to come. It rained hard later in the night, and helped replenish Indian Lake.

Zacky Day 6

Yesterday was cooler, rained in AM. Did the pool, of course, and helped PopPop water the new plants.

Mother and children

I rowed down to the shallow end of the cove and found Mama with her five cygnets. She allowed me get close, and to follow her from place to place as her babies eat their veggies.
