Developing Your Eye; Day 3: Water

A nice little brook (stream) as I hike through the Cowen and Ravenna Parks in Seattle

I typically go to Cowen and Ravenna parks in Seattle which are connected by hiking trailing. Relativity short to a almost moderate trails. Anyway as I was hiking I noticed this small brook (stream) and thought it was beautiful especially with the small waterfall. This is one of my favorite things to do in Seattle and do this particular park at least once week with the exception of when it is literally thirty nine degrees Fahrenheit or below because that is just too cold for me.

Photography: Developing Your Eye I; Day Three: Water

Good Morning, World!!! Today’s assignment or topic from the photography course I am taking through WordPress is “water.” While on my many walks through the trails of Cowen and Ravenna Parks I took my camera and took a picture of the tiny waterfall from a small stream also known as a brook. I just love all the greenery around it. I love being able to enjoy nature while being in the city at the same time. For those who are sight impaired, I have included a caption with the photo and hope that you are able use the caption to be of help.

Untitled Poem

by Gertie

First I hear you;

At first it is just a trickle.

As I get closer your trickle gets louder;

Now I spot you.

You are just a brook.

A brook calling out to me;

Calling out to me to just take a deep breath and enjoy the moment.

I thank you for the moment of being in the present.

I thank you small brook for the breath.
