Matt's Project 52: A Year in B&W
#52-42: A Haiku Moment
As I was folding my tripod after having taken the photo #52-40 and was about to walk away, a pair of mallards slowly drifted out from the shadows of the rock in this photo. Not wanting to spook them, I didn't move or open my tripod but decided to watch this mystical gift of the morning. They quietly moved down toward the left of the photo, turned, and went back whence they had come. I then took a few quick frames, hand held, before they disappeared behind the rock.
As suggested to Piet, I offer a Haiku as accompaniment.
