On Golden Pond

Posted by
Suzanne (Huntington Bch, California, United States) on 9 January 2009 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

Since I discovered her blog, I've been greatly influenced by the beautiful work of Marcie Scudder, Daily Practice. She has inspired me to take my camera along when I walk my dog at our local park. Being on the opposite coast from where she creates, there aren't any swans to photograph...mostly a lot of ducks and a bunch of old coots, but even so, I've managed to capture a few images I've posted on this blog. Anyway, thank you Marcie and I hope you don't mind my imitations.
