I’m A Duck That Does Not Give A Quack! — Through Open Lens

Hooded Merganser ( Female )

2 Guys walking down the street.

One walks into a bar, the other ducks.

Interesting Fact:  The female chooses the nest site, and may start scouting for next year’s tree cavity at the end of each breeding season. Nest cavities can be in live or dead trees and are usually close to water. Cavities are typically 10–50 feet off the ground, up to about 90 feet. Hooded Mergansers nest readily in boxes, preferring those with wood shavings or nest material from previous uses. They prefer cavities with 3–5 inch openings.

In Silence and solitude – John Chuchman

cta2bpic

As uncomfortable

as our society seems to be

with silence,

I gain much

from it,

with it,

in it.

In silence,

I gain

a deeper consciousness of  myself.

I often find out what’s really going on

within me

and sometimes even find answers to questions

troubling me.

In solitude,

I gain

a deeper attunement to nature,

discovering an awe and wonder

at the beautiful gift

of creation.

Solitude affords me

 a deeper relationship with the transcendent

(the numinous, the divine, the spiritual)

beyond the noisy man-made limits

of religious doctrine, dogma, rules, regulations, rites, and rituals.

Silence

increases my creativity,

providing me nuggets of wisdom

from nowhere,

which inspire and excite me.

In solitude

I find an increased sense of freedom,

not bound by noisy harangues.

I have found that

the correlation

between good ideas

and non-stop talkers

to be

less than zero.

It seems that

life’s stumbling blocks

can only be turned into

stepping stones

in

silence.

Mailboxes (Three Photographs) | Victor Rakmil Photography

My favourite happens to be the first photograph for its purity.. go visit there

 

I like to shoot series, in this case a series of photos of mailboxes. I’ve done this with doors windows and other things. Once there are enough photos I can cull them further until I have a coherent group of photographs of both the same quality and direction. Sometimes it’s a bit more challenging than it seems. It’s like collecting things, you don’t always find what you want and it can take some time until you have a sufficient number of photos that fit your criteria.
