I had a little idle time this afternoon and started thinking about how I’ve had few opps to get out of the house lately.
It wasn’t a good feeling.
I started looking through some of the folders for pix on my hard drive and it occurred to me that I’ve got thousands of photos I’ve never edited. As many of you may know, there’s no end to the editing process if you take a lot of photos.
So I dove back into a folder from a visit about a year ago and found some photos I like a lot. I tinkered with them and I think some of them are ready to live off my hard drive now.
I did have a different pic of these same waterfowl in a posting a long time ago. This is a good one, too and I’m happy to include it here.
I’ll offer one more before I get off the net and get lunch started. It’s from that lovely afternoon and features a good look at the dock from which I took the first two pix.
I’ve been wanting to get back to Downey. It’s on the east side of the Orlando metro area but outside the city limits. The Orange County Parks system here is so unbelievably good. Our parks and our library system are first class and those are two of the things I like best about living in Central Florida.
I said that the last pic was it for this posting, but I’m very pleased with how this editing session went, so I’m going to get one more up today. Appropriately, it’s a shot of me leaving the dock and walking back into the main part of the park.
I truly do love taking photos. And I really love blogging. That photo session ended and I’m wrapping up this post, too.
I have been trapped inside for three or four weeks now, and I don’t like it! I’m pouting right now but even so I’m buoyed by the knowledge that I’ll have other opportunities on other days to escape, put my camera to good use and enjoy what I’ve been missing lately.
That’s a good feeling.
Chained to my laptop for now, I am,
