Photo Hunt - Patch

Lily pads flowers in a patch of Lillies.  These beauties are a lovely warm shade of white with a pale creamy yellow center.

Half of the North Farms Reservoir in Wallingford, CT is covered with these Lily pads.

It's just a sea of green and white all over the place.

Backwards - Photo Hunt

This turkey is looking backwards at me.  It is amazing the eyesight these buggers have.  He can see me move over 50 feet away, through the slightly tinted windows in my house.   And he can hear well too.  So it's hard to sneak up on him to get a decent photo.  I managed to get this shot through the windows at the back of the house with my Tamron 28-300mm lens.   The cats, Beau Beau and Angie, have been chasing him when they have been outside.  Other than that, they are entertained by watching him stroll by the windows early in the morning.

Happy photos!

Independence Day Design

I took a photo of the outside of a restaurant in Bar Harbor, ME a few years ago.  It had a flag on it and a bunch of bouy's hanging all over it.  This was the same time that I had discovered how to create "amazing circles" in Photoshop.   That's how my photo turned into this interesting shape.  Fourth of July in America reminds me of the American flag of course, lobsters, New England and Maine in particular.  Plus being on vacation reminds me of freedom and what Independence Day is all about.

Enjoy your day and create something beautiful wherever you are!
