The creative act lasts but a brief moment, a lightning instant of give-and-take, just long enough for you to level the camera and to trap the fleeting prey in your little box.

Photo #4

Our lake during sewer replacement
Not a very pleasant sight for
all these lakeshore homes.
By May the lake will be
full...of water.......hopefully!

I hope they get that unsightly mess put back together before your warm season is over!
In 2006 they did that to the little beach near my house for storm dainage- n it took almost year to complete! Construction- contractor crews are not dependable...

Pictures like this are interesting because of their context - once the water is returned, it would be hard to imagine it looking this way. I'm reminded of those old photographs of dirt roads and fields where now there are concrete highways and shopping centers.

I have a friend who used to live in Lake Oswego. Funny! We visited there when we took a road trip across the country a few years ago.

I wish you much success on your photo blog this year.
