A few weekends ago I headed out for breakfast with my partner and my friend.
After eating we went to Centennial Park for a short period of time.
It was raining and it felt relaxing to be in the park as there was low amounts of both foot and vehicular traffic.
One of the ponds was overflowing which made it easy to get photos of some of the birds such as the ones below.
I feel I was quite fortunate in being able to get as close to the cygnet as I did. I don’t know as to how much of a risk it was, but I didn’t move closer than I thought was safe and I wasn’t approached too closely by the parents, so I think I was pretty safe.
This is my submission into the one hundred-and-ninetieth Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.
The theme for this one is “Close and Closer“.
The host of the Lens-Artists challenges cycles weekly between the following people:
Week 1 – Patti
Week 2 – Ann-Christine aka Leya
Week 3 – Amy
Week 4 – Tina
This year three people are joining the Lens-Artists team:
John Steiner of Journeys with Johnbo
Sofia Alves of Photographias
Anne Sandler of Slow Shutter Speed
As such the above hosting order is likely to change.
This one is curated by Patti. The next one is curated by Leya.
I recommend participating in the challenges. They’re enjoyable and allow room for interpretation of the theme without straying too far. If you don’t participate, then I recommend that you at least check out what others of the Lens-Artists community are submitting.
I hope you enjoy.
