OK, so I must admit, I was a little afraid to see what Lorraine had sent me when I read her title… “Romance by the Lake”. We all know how Lorraine goes above and beyond to get her shot, so I am thinking… what has she done now?
“This is my story………….. I had several ideas for this challenge but kept coming back to the idea of finding a carving in a tree or a picnic table that expressed or declared love. I looked around at various trees and picnic tables near the lake before I came across this one that I really liked. Besides having the heart carving, it appealed to me for several reasons.
I like the orientation of the picnic table with the background being the lake. It just seemed like a nice romantic spot to spend some time. Maybe even to enjoy a beautiful sunset. It was an overcast day with a threat of rain. The sun kept peeking out as the clouds kept passing in front of it. After multiple attempts, I learned that by using a certain angle I could really use the light to my advantage. I have to pause and wonder how Mike and Rosa’s romance has turned out!”
So here is the picnic table and carving that Lorraine captured.
But wait… there is MORE!
“In case you didn’t know or recognize it, I wanted to send you a picture of where MY picnic table is located. You are welcome to sit and rest at
MY picnic table when you visit YOUR tree!
In all respect, I kept my camera off YOUR tree, so Mike shot this! (Ha! Ha!)”
It seems that husband Mike, from the CWPC men’s auxillary is causing a bit of havoc too!
Lorraine goes on to say…
“This picnic table just happened to be the best one I found. The best tree at the lake near the best picnic table.
What more could crazy women want????”
