"Come and sit by my side, if you love me. Do not hasten to bid me adieu."A curious but wary Cardinal watching me from the branch of a newly-budding tree. He sure seems to have personality, doesn't he? He looked into my camera in May/2010.
"I was walking along, minding my business, when love came and hit me in the eye."A cold drink... one summer evening... on the dock... as the sun set. Need I say more?
"Look at the stars. Look how they shine for you."One afternoon, back in October, 2008, the air temperature dropped slightly. Walking away from the creek, a fine mist began to form, and drift over the path up ahead. By the time we reached the path just a few meters away, the air was filled with this golden cloud. Here two people, one on bike and one on foot break through the haze.
"I threw a pebble in a brook and watched the ripples run away."I knelt down to take this photograph of water droplets weighing heavily on an aging blade of grass in July/2009.
"I feel so bad I've got a worried mind. I'm so lonesome all the time."Walking around my local pond, one July day in 2008, I saw this handsome fellow hanging around the dam. He seemed quite unconcerned with my presence and allowed me to photograph him in all his majestic beauty. I hope I'll see a lot of him this year.
"That feeling goes stealing down to my shoes while I just sit here and sigh."Celebratory fireworks ended an event-filled weekend in Kingston at Royal Military College on the occasion of my older son's graduation and commissioning last May.
"Sweeter than the roses, covered all over from head to toe."A tiny, delicate bloom, simple and pretty, caught on my camera last August.
So tell me, how do my photos and quotes relate?
