    Default "feel it in the air, summer's out of reach..."

    not sure why i like this image so much, but it's one of my favorites. for some reason, the combination of the clouds, the sun, the reflection on the water, and that empty chair seems to produce a very wistful, almost melancholy feeling as of something precious lost, or waiting for something that will never return...

    He's just taking a piss ... he'll be back in a minute

    It is a nice shot. I like the other one with the fisherman (before he needed to 'siphon the python') you posted a few days back better though

    thanks, Bambi and MA...

    MA, the two evoke different feelings, to me at least... "Solitude" is a shot that creates a sense of contemplation, isolation, perhaps even loneliness. this one brings to mind more of a feeling of wistful remembrance, or perhaps yearning, for something or someone that's no longer there.

    but that's the neat thing about art, isn't it? everyone sees and reacts to it differently...

    If Squirl had waited another few minutes he'd have finished and be back I'm telling ya!!

    Of course I'd have just fired it off the side of the jetty ... but that's me ... I'm not a Canadian fisherman
