RDP Tuesday: Sawyer

I was visiting Wisconsin a few years ago and along the way I stopped along the road and on our visits to parks and took pictures.

This was new one for me, I started to take Nature Shots.

I don’t do a lot of nature shots, not because I don’t enjoy taking them. There’s just so much going on that it’s hard for me to find a subject, so I just end up with these snapshots with a bunch of stuff in them.

This time I saw a few things though that I thought would look cool with a little Photoshop work that I could use for my Halloween stories, so I started to snap away.

” Hey. ” My son sounded surprised. ” Nature shots. Is there a dead animal or something in there? ”

” I would never photograph a dead animal. ” I said pointedly.

My Son who knows this to be true asked, “So there’s nothing dead out there, right?”

” Hmmm? Nah. ”

I looked out at the scene and then I looked down into my camera and I said. ” Look at these trees in the water. ”

” Yeah. Nice ones. ”

” Do you think they’re drowning? I mean. Do you suppose their roots are rotting? If they were people stuck out there with no way to get to the river bank and the water rising.  It’d be like something from a horror movie, right?  This is cool stuff. ”

My Son patted my shoulder and went and took a seat on the bench along the trail,he sat down stretched out his legs and lifted his face to the Sun and I went back to work.

It Rained Cats and Dogs… Mostly On The Dog

Today me and Hamish went on a walk with our family around Bradley Lake.

We vowed to walk our dogs around he Lake or to hike the trails around the park rain or shine. We could all use the exercise, ha.

So today we got tested because halfway through our walk the sky opened up and poured rain by the bucket fulls.

After a year of being in lockdown, of gritting our teeth it and getting through the day- the rain felt so good. So did we rush to our cars?

Heck no.

I took my hood down and got soaked and yes- it felt good.

Here are some pictures that my niece took of my dog Hamish. I think the look in his eyes speaks volumes about how he felt about the day.

The gallery confirmed the little girl is in fact an art installation, and one of many dotted around the area.

In a tweet, the gallery said:

A while back, a video of this little girl went viral on TikTok.

She is part of a series of murals around Lancaster BLVD titled #isitsafe by Dan Witz.

You know, if  that Tweet alone  isn’t a good beginning to a horror story, I don’t know what is.
