Focus in a Monet Setting

 My favourite canal provided a serene mood for my slice through the water today.
 Plunge....aim....
 and...capture.
This peaceful scene shows you what we experienced as we followed the dirt road along the water's edge.
Splash.....
Plunge...aim...and capture.
I am working on, if not perfected, my delivery.
How about you?
 It's a process,
one that I focus on daily.

  13. Straight as an arrow towards the target, my young friend. You are the most talented ball chaser I have ever seen, especially in the water. And, the places where you do your practicing are lovely beyond compare.

  17. Hi Y'all,

    Here in the states we're heading into a holiday weekend. I'm wondering if we're saying hello to autumn or goodbye to summer.

    Would have loved to go on that walk with y'all Sophie!

    Y'all come by now,
