And...about bloody time, VZ...I was starting to think of you as a morose old bugger, preoccupied with regrets about a life that might have been but was not...

Flap your wings, stir the water around you...mock-terrorise your wife...it is Springtime!



[grin]
vz-nostalgia: LOL Ray. "morose old bugger"... hahaha that's me. I would flap my wings, but I have none left. All were broken during transmigrations smile

Why, oh why? I leave a comment and get returned an explorer failure. So let's try again.

Ode to life? It seems to me that this bird with the funny eye has been caught by the waddlers - must be a croc or a huge pike.
vz-nostalgia: for once I tried to cheer Nostagia up and glance around through the rose glasses, but judging by your thought, I miserably failed. LOL

..looks happy and full of exuberance to me. smile
vz-nostalgia: that's what I thought as well, Ms. Suzanne. There was a gorgeous duckchess nearby he tried so badly to impress. smile
Finalmente!!!
vz-nostalgia: ...but not for long, Ms. Stefania. smile

Nice action moment here.
vz-nostalgia: nice action?... Do you also believe that something grabbed his ass as Louis suggested, Ms. Laurie? smile

Two things immediately come to mind, Viktor: The Twilight Zone...and a wonderful book called "The Dance of the Dissident Daughter." smile
vz-nostalgia: I must admit I have seen not a single series of the Twilight Zone, nor I read the book. I guess I have a lot of holes to patch in the fabric of my intellect, Ms. Ginnie. smile

yes, you are right- life is movement, drawing of circles- widerly and widerly - like on your pic which I love- but the duck could be a bit more colourfully feathered- and when getting older and older, the circles are getting smaller and smaller, finally concentrated on only a few points...!
vz-nostalgia: What circles are these that get smaller and smaller as you age, Philine? Are these circles of friends? circles of your interests? circles of your travels?
I guess when all the circles reduce into a single point that will mean we reached the end. smile

What happened to you Viktor, are you actually taking a picture of a living soul? Nice shot, though i have a sneaky doubt you weren't in your right mind.
vz-nostalgia: we all have weak moments, Mina. smile

Like the phoenix out of the flames.
vz-nostalgia: I've never seen the flames shooting out of water, Chris. smile well, maybe in Las Vegas. smile
Nice try Viktor, but sadly it does look as if his effort to fly until he touches the sky is doomed to failure by unseen forces below.
vz-nostalgia: damn, I guess it's me who's doomed to ever post a cheerful upbeat picture. smile

Viktor, I thought about my very aged mother whose life- radius got/is getting smaller and smaller (less walking, hearing...) - I think you have understood my thought...- my circles are rather wide...
vz-nostalgia: keep them wide, Ms. Philine. smile
hmmmm i think Mina sums this nicely for me Victorsmile
vz-nostalgia: well, in this case my response to Mina will sums up my response to you, Tim. smile

Aren't we all beginning to feel like this; a little dose of sunshine, a little warmth in the air and we're wanting to shake our feathers and welcome the spring.
vz-nostalgia: it doesn't take much to awaken a good side in us, does it, Ms. Pixie? smile

It's a get up 'n' go kind of picture Vik!
vz-nostalgia: I'm afraid I'm not familiar with the concept, Chris. smile
Tough shots these.
Watch over the next few days, we've been trying a few of these too.
Need to get more light on the subject as the camera is fooled by the water glare!
Great to get in amongst the action
Cheers
Rob
vz-nostalgia: if only it was just the camera, Rob. I myself get fooled by the subjects of my shooting all the time. smile

(its thoughts, not melancholic at all):!!!Viva la vida loca!!!

great shot!! Now I know how difficult it is to shoot an object in movement...so...you are the one!!! (share your tricks)
vz-nostalgia: if you are looking for the magic tricks, Ms. K.A., I'm afraid i have to disappoint you. Good photography is 95% hard work, 5% talent. smile
