Danger Off the Path

It’s a beautiful walk to the river but stay on the trail and beware of snakes and alligators.  I’m not sure why the orange and white barricade is there though.

Photo Challenge – Surprise

This week we are asked to share a surprise as seen through our lens.

_DSC0386

Our youngest grandson and his mom are visiting us this week and I have spent countless hours following him around trying to get the perfect shots.  Just when I think I’ve got the perfect photo, he turns around – or crawls away – or waves bye – or claps and all I’ve captured is a blur.

_DSC0943

The only time he stays still is when he looks out the window so I’ve got some beautiful photos of his back.  The surprise is that I love these photos just as much as the ones where I can see his face with all his expressions.

How could you resist the curl in his hair?

I love the way the light surrounds him.
