Again, I think it was one of those moments when, if a child had been crossing the bridge, he or she would have asked me, “What are you looking at? What are you taking pictures of over there?” But adults, for the most part, tend to be more polite or simply distant. So, while I think I stood there quite a while in that spot on the bridge that crosses the Mystic, I only received sidelong glances. No one asked me any questions. No one came over to peer over the rail where I focused my camera. What would they have seen? I suppose a dead fish floating in the shallows is not the most enticing sight but I’m telling you … in that sunlight in those moments as its form rose and fell with roll of the water, it was beautiful.

… you get lucky. There are dragonflies zipping all along the Mystic River right now but only this one paused long enough for me to take its picture. I love its wings.

Today I wear a sweater and have a shawl and knit cap in my bag for later. But only a few days ago it was near 100 degrees and high humidity. Of course, I picked that day to journey into Harvard Square on my way to the Charles River. I never quite made it to the river. Too hot and common sense won out. With a cold bottle of water, I sat beneath the shade of a tree and in the end decided to see what I could capture from that stationery vantage point.

And then I lay back and pointed the camera up.
