  1. Lovely pic and quote, Nancy … my idea of heaven!

    Mine as well, Joey — this photo has a HUGE story attached to it. It was taken on a 5-day, company-sponsored canoe trip when I was working as a Paramedic. There were 50 of us and I believe I learned more about myself on that trip (having never been in a canoe before…let alone on a Class II river!) than at any other time. I have a professionally taken photo of this dock and chair in the moonlight that hangs over my desk as a certain reminder, that if I can survive that trip, there isn’t anything I can’t do. :) It was one of the most spiritual experiences of my life. I’ll do up a post about it because it taught me life-changing lessons that beg to be shared. :-)

  2. I’m going to contribute another “oooh.” I love how the chair stands out in sharp focus, in contrast with the foreground.

    Hi Stephen! I’ll take your “oooh”. :) It sort of looks like you’re walking INTO a dream, doesn’t it? A post about the photo and story surrounding is is upcoming. Stay tuned?

  3. Hi Nancy – you’ve done it again with the dreamiest of locales shot with a precisely placed focus that creates the dream. Wish I were there :)


    Thanks, Laura — I wish *I* were there!

  4. That’s such a perfect thought with that picture – fall is a nice time for sitting a bit and thinking over the gardening season:)

    Indeed — Hurricane Earl left behind a beautiful sunny day with clear air and perfect late summer temperatures. It would be a perfect day for the chair. :)

  5. I love this shot! The effect of blurring the objects close to the lens and focusing on the chair out on the dock works wonderfully! I wish I knew more about photography so I could achieve the same.

  6. What volumes this photo speaks Nancy. I read your response to Joey’s comment so the photo means even more knowing the story. You should have put that in your post! Everything about it is lovely and what I wouldn’t do to be sitting in that spot, with a margarita and a book!

I appreciate and welcome your comments!
