Lake Katherine Man Made Waterfall
Here's the man made waterfall run off at Lake Katherine. Many of the rocks are fake, but it's an interesting place to visit. The water runs into lake and it has lots of animals, birds, turtles, and fish. Great place to shoot.
Kayaking on Lake Katherine
Kayaking on Lake Katherine was fun to watch and shoot.

Creativity or Horrible Out-Of-Focus Mistake
Well, I could say I was being creative and purposely shot play out of focus, but the truth is, it was a horrible mistake. Most photographers would have deleted it, but I rather like it because it is out of focus and one has to intensely look to see what's happening. Maybe even a water color painting look. After all, baseball can be like watching paint dry! Relax all of you who are hooked on tack sharp focus... this is tack sharp out of focus!
Where's the ball
My grandson playing second base and he seems frustrated that the ball didn't get to him in time. I like the look of the kid stepping on second base and he too seems a bit curious why the ball wasn't thrown in time.

A different composition
John Langfeld suggested a shot of this waterfall without the background. I actually had considered cropping it this way, but then elected not to. I decided to do it for John and I think it works even better than the original one.
A Small Waterfall
Just a small waterfall on I think is the Fox River, but if I'm wrong I know Bruce will correct me.
These to young women asked me to take their picture with their IPhone. I agreed if they would allow me to take a photo with my camera. I told them I'd upload it to CMC, and for them to check it out. I hope they do.
I've been photographing since the age of nine, but there has been several hiatus over the past 65 years. I enjoy all types of photography from landscape to macro. I'm very impressed with the talented photographers on CMC.
