I just recently had the pleasure of meeting Linda when I was invited to have lunch with her and my friend Sheila. It was many years ago, shortly after moving to Texas that I met Sheila. She was instrumental in starting the Mesquite Photography Club which I was a member of for quite a few years. Unfortunately, it is no more. Sheila has known Linda for quite some time and thought she might be interested in our club as she is very creative, writes poetry and would like to be able to use photography to go along with her poems. What a great idea!
Linda has been watching the craziness from afar and then wrote me a lovely e-mail expressing a desire to be more active in the club and I cannot tell you how thrilled I was! So this is Linda’s first entry in a challenge. If you will scroll down to the bottom of the bios on the left side of the blog, you can meet Linda and I hope you will all give her a “crazy woman” welcome. We are so honored to have you join us Linda.
And this is what Linda wrote about her entry to the January Challenge:
“My husband and I enjoy walking to a park near our home, where this wooden footbridge crosses over a creek that runs through the park. We sometimes stop and stand on this bridge for a moment, looking for a big turtle that will swim toward us while we watch, probably hoping we will toss him a chunk of bread or other treat. Farther down the creek, where the water is deeper, are several other turtles, as well as ducks. Sometimes we see a heron or egret.
When I drive past the park, I always glance over at this pretty little bridge nestled at the edge of an undeveloped wooded area, our little nature preserve in suburbia.”
