I've been working super hard to complete my school's yearbook. I plan to send it to the printer on Monday. I love it, but it is exhausting at the same time. I hope that my images , more Lake Eola, will speak for themselves.
Weekend Reflections & Skywatch

There is something extremely cute about babies of any species.
. The mother stayed close to her young.
I am amazed that the mother birds choose to build their nests so close to people.
The young birds that Occupied the nest were very active.
Did you notice that the bird's young bodies are chartreuse!
... their nests were right over alligator's homes.
but they remained safe in their homemade bungalow.

I found myself in downtown Orlando, with a little bit of time to kill. I decided to re-visit Lake Eola. My challenge to myself was to capture different images than previous visits to the park.
The sun was just disappearing behind the skyscrapers.
I know that these are simple images, but they are some of my favorite!
The swans ...
were getting in their evening swim.
As the sun went to sleep,
the lake turned to gold.
(Image above straight out of the camera)
then, a pale red.
Take your friends
and go to sleep
Return to your nest
and go to sleep

We checked in the hotel, hopped in the car, made a quick stop for food and our date night was underway.
We found a parking spot in Saint Petersburg near the bay... I think it was Tampa Bay.
We feasted on a appetizing $6 foot longs. (I guess the $5 sale was over.)
We talked and enjoyed each others company as we watched the sun disappear.
The sounds of a live jazz festival were at the perfect volume from half way across the marina.
After dinner we went for a walk around the water's edge, and saw a dolphin right next to us!
I know that you are thinking it sounds like a strange date, but moments like these are the best and I loved every minute of it!
N is for nightfall
