I really can't believe how lucky I was to stumble across these Canada geese circling before landing at Crystal Springs Lake - less than 5 miles from downtown Portland. Thousands had already landed and these adolescents were coming down fast. They made quite the ruckus and were just breathtaking to see.
The theme of this week's Photo Friday is Words. When thinking about what I wanted to do, I knew I wanted to use this picture. I love coming upon street art and this piece was just so lovely. The bright pink Love on the barbed wire made a striking image. I was happy to see that it stayed there for many weeks before someone finally tore it down.
I love Photo Friday. I used to participate often many years ago and for whatever reason I stopped. I get the weekly challenge in my in-box every week. Every week I think, I need to get back into doing this...and I never do. Until now! I just couldn't let this challenge pass me by. Walk - how perfect is that? It's a great way to dip my toe back into the pool. I didn't have to think long as to what photo to choose. I took this picture back on an extremely rainy day in March. I like how it's a self portrait on two levels. I also like how I can instantly remember just how rainy the day was and how soaked my feet were. Now that the sun has been out for days and days, I'm missing the rain.
