A Sweet and Tender Rain

"And the birds' and angels' wings shake downward on her heart a sweet and tender rain."  (A. Procter)


You will almost never see me post a picture of myself.   But I wanted to include this one to show my son Mark that his Momma has developed a tiny sense of adventure in pursuit of this new photography hobby.  There is a park a few miles from where we live.  My husband and I occasionally walk the paths back through the woods and open fields.  For some time, we have noticed a small bridge, seemingly inaccessible because of the trail of weeds and thorny vines and snakes and spiders that one would have to encounter in order to reach it.   Last week, we took the plunge and made our way over to it.  It was the perfect time, as it is too early in the season for the vines to be growing and hopefully too early for the spiders, etc.  The recent flood waters had receded enough for walking to be possible.   So .... here I sit on that "inaccessible" bridge .... a small thing to most people but a tiny bit of excitement for me, who never does such things.  (click on photo to enlarge)

Cheers to new adventures on roads less traveled! Love this shot of you! I'm so happy that we are really taking this 365 challenge and committing to it. Letting it take us to places we would normally say we don't have enough time to go to.

Beautiful post!

xoxo,
Bonnie

This is a very nice photo of a very nice person. You are really taking steps outside your normal "comfort zone". I wonder what you will think to do next... :-)

Wow -- you have at least 2 "Bonnies" watching your photos !!!
I'm not accustomed to knowing other "bonnies".

My beautiful Momma! I'm so glad that you and Dad are being so adventurous! With photography at the centre of your excursions! next stop Australia! Any good photographer must have a shot of the Sydney Opera house....especially after visiting the world's largest IMAX theater!
