Saturday stroll in the park

Saturday chores finished, it was time to take a little break, so Bob snapped the leash on Gulliver and we all went to the park to see what was happening along the river.


Except for several wedding parties taking pictures, there wasn’t much going on, but, with or without much action, it was a beautiful day for a walk. We wandered down the north side of the river. As we turned around and headed back toward the northwest, I took this picture of the pedestrian bridge.


Bob wanted me to take a few pictures of the wedding parties, but I said, “Let’s cross the bridge first,” so that’s what we did, and I snapped these pictures from the middle of the bridge.

Looking south from the pedestrian bridge…
The sun was behind me.
Facing northwest, into the glare from the sun.

From the opposite side of the bridge, looking toward Lake Erie, which is only about a mile away, I took the picture above (realizing later that I needed a filter on my camera to cut the glare)! On the east side of the bridge, we followed the trail a short way until we reached the overlook where Bob and Gulliver decided to relax while I took the picture at the top of this page. Then I turned the camera on “the boys” and captured a picture of them that I really like because it looks so natural.


As you can see from the pictures, the shadows were beginning to lengthen, and it was time to retrace our steps and head for home. Back on the pedestrian bridge, we encountered another wedding party. Hopefully their photographer had a professional camera with a fast lens, as the light was beginning to fade. I’m not sure where he (or she) and the bride and groom were at this moment, but the family members, other guests, and the attendants were enjoying a little digital diversion. I wouldn’t be surprised if those pictures were passed around at the reception for everyone’s entertainment. I didn’t want to miss the opportunity, so I stood above them on the bridge and grabbed a few shots. It was hard to resist, so I hope they don’t mind. If they ever come across these two pictures, I will be happy to send them copies. The bride’s attendants looked lovely, and I’m guessing the fellows had a grand time at the reception.

I never know what I’m going to see when I pick up my camera and head out for a trail walk. That’s what makes this hobby so much fun!


That’s the end of this walk along the trail.
Thanks for joining me!
