Inspiration of the Moment and My Photography

A "Song" To Sing... 

"A bird doesn't sing because it has an answer, 
it sings because it has a song.
~ Lou Holtz

This photo I took (below) is a visual "song" I had to sing, about the beauty I find in nature, through this duck and the captivating ripples in the water it created as it moved. It was such a simple moment, but the ripple effect it created in my thoughts was so significant. My words don't do it justice but I hope my photo does. My photos are "songs" of things that I want to sing about, to inspire me and I hope others, too, in life.

What sings to you? Capture it in your memories, to pull out at any time you need a "song" to remind you of the magnificence all around us. 


  1. I've already told you, Jayne, but I'll say it again... I love your photos and this one is amazing! I love nature, too. Wish I could spend more time there.

  2. Awww...Thank You so much, Nissie! Your comments means so much. You have no idea. *Hugs* xoxo

    I really love this shot and was really happy I could capture the duck's face as well as the beautiful water ripples. The ducks kept moving so much and diving and showing their bums - well, what did I expect?? LOL - that it was actually quite hard to get a good picture of them. I was so happy when I got this one. It was busy scratching its neck, so I managed to capture it. ^_^

  3. Nissie, I thought you lived right in the middle of nature? Don't you live near some woods? At least it looked like that in that beautiful moon photo I saw of yours.

    But I know what you mean. It's lovely to just have the time to sit, breathe, observe and enjoy nature

  4. Love your "Visual Song" Jaynie! You already know how much I love your poetry and now I find you with such a wonderful talent in photography! And how perfect to say they are your "songs" of the things you want to sing about!

    Beautiful prose - lovely picture!

    Thank you for sharing! ..*Hugs*

  5. Thank you, KatLynne! Yes, that quote by Lou Holtz got me thinking, that my photos are "visual songs" of things that captivate me and that I want to sing about and share with others.
