Quiet bench by the river (2)

I enjoyed this quiet bend in the Huron River.  It was a very cold afternoon, light snow flurries gently drifting down, quiet.  The bench looked like a nice place to relax on a warmer day, though I thought about sitting for a few minutes but I was already too cold.  The tones and texture of the film gave this image just the right feel for me.

A bench in the woods

Taking a walk along the trail that circles the pond at Maybury State Park, I came across a bench set just off the trail and among the trees.  It looks like a nice place to take in the beautiful park, gather your thoughts, have a quiet conversation, or simply listen to nature.  With the afternoon sun getting lower, I liked how the two parallel tree shadows reach out to hold the bench.

The porch light at the Hessel house has been burning gold for as long as I can remember.  It’s warm, homey; like Mom and Dad had it for years.  The house is basically empty now, even when I’m there.  Quiet, solitude, friendly, neighborly.  Lots of nice memories.
