Grabbing a Minute for Me

Wednesday, August 25, 2010

The colors, the smoothness of the water, the slight breeze, wildflowers...
I'm appreciating being alone, hearing nothing, after talking for ten hours.

I climbed the short fence to get a closer look
This section of the river is as narrow as a brook
But I can't tell where the river begins
Nor can I see where it ends.
It's like the love that our Father sends.

I have been in a number of different towns and cities in Michigan and the Grand River winds through them. In my town alone it runs under many of the main streets  (about a dozen that I know of) some areas being much deeper than others. I find the wild flowers that grow along it's bank interesting and in the deeper areas you will find it fenced in and sometimes piles of rocks to discourage people from trying to swim it. The strong currents have claimed a few lives so there are also warning signs posted in those sites. Children should not swim without an adult nearby who knows how to swim.  Please enjoy the rest of your week. After all it is hump day. :-) For more watery photos and to share yours please  visit Watery Wednesday.

The water looks very calm, and your photos are beautiful..It looks too narrow to swim, but maybe it's deep!

Nice shots. I like the textured ripples in the water. We have an L.A. river but its cement and it only runs when it's rains. :-)

great photos... can't believe you really went into trouble of climbing the fence. oh well, for the sake of photography I might do that too.

The water looks so still and calming, a perfect place to relax. You captured some really great reflections Judy.
