This post is a little different than my usual posts. There's a little story behind the images today. I was at a park on the Huron River several days ago. I was shooting flowers, landscapes and some abstract hopefuls! Even though it was a tad more windy than I would have liked for shooting flowers, the clouds were great and it felt wonderful outside.
Then all of a sudden several people decided to try to help. The two that took the most active part were a couple that happened to be walking in the park. Lou, and Emily. I wish I had taken a photo of them, but alas I didn't. Maybe someday I'll see them again though, as we did exchange e mails. We were trying to figure out how to get my soaking wet cap etc. out of the water when all of a sudden a young man by the name of Michael came quickly gliding in a canoe out from under the bridge we were all on.
We yelled for help, and he quickly responded and was very eager and determined to retrieve the floating object from the water. Winds were strong, which made for some pretty hard work, but he wasn't about to give up!
It certainly does the soul good to know that there are wonderful people out there. People who will come to the aid of a total stranger.
Many many thanks to Lou, Emily, Michael, and all the others that came and went during that time, trying to help out!
This last shot is one of the bridge. It was taken before this all happened, but it's where it all happened!
