Reflections

Cucumber Falls 3

Here you can see the Youghiogheny River in the distance, muddy from recent rains.

Strictly speaking, this photograph does not show the falls but the pooled and slowly moving water of Cucumber Run between the falls and the Youghiogheny River. The colors in the water are reflected trees and sky.

GBH in SLP


January 31, 2018

If you’re a big fan (as I am) of the works of George Bernard Shaw, you may be disappointed in this post. This is what birders call a GBH: Great Blue Heron. This one was trolling the shallows for fish in South Lido Park.

Update On February 6, on the post titled Sleeping Turtles Preserve North, with Bog Lily, I made a confession that I’m now (February 14) copying here. “I have a strange confession to make concerning the blog post called GBH in SLP. On that post I intimated (because for some reason I have thought of George Bernard Shaw whenever I heard “GBH”) that “GBH” was how people referred to George Bernard Shaw. It isn’t! Obviously (even to me, now), George Bernard Shaw is “GBS”! I’m sorry if I confused any of you in my own confusion. I have no idea how that erroneous thought got lodged in my head. Thank my dear husband for setting me straight.” Arghhh.

The Back Pond (August 2017)


September 29, 2017

The Back Pond at Schoepfle Garden has fascinated me for years. It’s where I have captured reflections of the surrounding woods in all seasons. This summer, however, the park people installed one of those terrible aerator rings, which shoots up water in a constant disruption of natural surface variations. When I visited last month, I was lucky enough to be there when the thing was turned off.

 

 

 

 


A Car for Linda? 4


September 5, 2017

I may be confusing people. This is not my car, nor are the cars in any post with the title “A Car for Linda?” It is a photograph of a car (and a reflection) like photographs of cars that I take. Earlier photographs of cars that I posted—the ones, called “A Car for Ken”—were like photographs of cars that a fellow blogger named Ken takes. (Keep scrolling on his site; you’ll find some.) Ken avoids reflections in cars; I seek them.
