I used to come to Ryan park to do watercolor paintings. That was the good ol' days before kids came along. Today I drove by it on the way from a bookstore and it looked so inviting I had to squeeze in a mini shoot before heading home.
It is always so mellow here an today was no exception! Everything was still and the gentle blue ripples in the water seemed the only thing that moved at all.
I said "inviting", didn't I? How gorgeous is that setting!
Hmmm, I kept feeling like there was just something missing in these shots....what is it....
Ah ha! Where are the people? The park was quite empty and I kept thinking a couple of kids running around here will make some gorgeous photos. Then it dawned on me. I missed my kids! I know, I know. A couple of hours with our awesome sitter is a treat for everyone involved, but it was time for me to go home.
