One of the horses from our carriage ride (from the previous post). Never been on a carriage ride through the city before. Would have been quite romantic if there weren't nine of us piled in the carriage, plus the driver.
We drive by this tree a lot and it always looks to me like a dinosaur waiting to crush the next car that comes over the hill. Do you see it? I'm sure the guys from the electric company who trimmed the tree weren't intending to sculpt a piece of public art, but it certainly amuses me.
Dew on a leaf in our back yard. Someday when we have our own house and I have nothing else to do, I think I'll take up gardening and putter about in the yard. There's a lot gardening teaches about life: patience in waiting for change, the need to nurture people for them to grow, the frailty and temporary-ness of things, how we're all connected and need each other.
With this camera constantly with me, I've started thinking of myself as a tourist in my own hometown. It's funny how we don't appreciate the beautiful things around us just because we've become used to them--whether landmarks or the people we love. This hexagon barn is a familiar landmark just south of Bryan, Ohio on highway 15.
Found an outdoor wedding at Lakeside Park and Rose Garden in Fort Wayne, IN while taking photos this past weekend. The water and flowers made it picture perfect. Couldn't help but snap a few during the bride's processional.
Found a great photo op in Fort Wayne, Indiana yesterday at Lakeside Park and Rose Garden. As much as I enjoy taking photos, even I get tired of looking at flower pictures pretty quickly--so I thought I'd get it over with and put them all in a collage. Enjoy!
I was out on the pier in Lakeside, Ohio thinking I could snap a few photos of boats and got something much better. As I was happily snapping away, a large heron swooped and landed fairly close to me. I stalked him slowly for about 10 minutes to get close enough for this shot. As soon as I turned my back, I missed him diving for a fish. For a landlubber like me, it was pretty cool.
