The yogi, part 2

Then two fishermen showed up, walked out to the end of the jetty and did their thing while the yogi continued to do what I thought was his thing. Matt

These are all nice. The first is my favorite but I am partial to pictures of silhouetted fishermen so that's not surprising.

The third one, with Yogi in it, is one of the oddest images I've seen in a while. It's so odd that it might go viral on the internet if you posted it to instagram or somewhere like that. I can't really say I like it but it is well done, it is arresting, and I can't resist looking at it.

thanks, Minnie. I don't know whether that is a yoga posture or not, but the fishermen gave their opinion of the whole drama by casually walking up onto the rocks and past him with nary a pause or a nod. Two very different worlds. Thanks for the comment. Matt

Minnie, I have been noodling about posting this on the Internet, but I don't know how. I don't have a Facebook account, and don't use Instagram or Twitter. What would I do? It would be a hoot to see what happened. Matt
