No but I will definitely try. Thanks for looking!! To tell the truth, the abstract idea was an afterthought when I saw the picture. :)

That is the problem mardi -- reality intrudes again and again!

Greetings from California, Bruce

Hi Bruce when I shot this I thought I was too far away to get the ducks but there they were. :) Thank you for your comment!

Hi, Margot.

After reading all the comments on both photos, I have to say that I don't have a favorite. How's that for commitment-phobia?

I like both versions for different reasons.

This one is a great abstract. While you are mesmerized by all the wavy lines, BOOM "Where did those ducks come from?!".

The other one is "Nice ducks. Oh, and look at the wavy lines.".

Hope that settles it :)))

Best wishes, Leo

Thanks Marilyn! I was surprised to find them there when I first looked at the picture. :)
