A walk in the park!

Blogging after a long gap. Wedding season going fast right now!

This was from a walk in the park. Not just any park, the Arboretum. A nice clear spring morning, still a bit of wintry chill in the morning. Thanks to my two dear old friends Richard and Mei to push me to wake up early and walk with them and teach a few things about camera.

We saw a great deal in the morning, but not what you expect to see in an arboretum. End of a long hard winter, there were not too much blooming yet. But mornings are such great times to shoot, it gave us a bright moon, golden sunlight a little later, and of course the planes flying in and out of Logan looked great.

A poem by Billy Collins: 

 

Why do we bother with the rest of the day, 
the swale of the afternoon, 
the sudden dip into evening,

 

then night with his notorious perfumes, 
his many-pointed stars?

 

This is the best—
throwing off the light covers,
feet on the cold floor,
and buzzing around the house on espresso—

 

maybe a splash of water on the face, 
a palmful of vitamins—
but mostly buzzing around the house on espresso,

 

dictionary and atlas open on the rug,
the typewriter waiting for the key of the head, 
a cello on the radio,

 

and, if necessary, the windows—
trees fifty, a hundred years old 
out there,
heavy clouds on the way
and the lawn steaming like a horse 
in the early morning.

 

Enjoy the pictures and leave a comment if you wish.
