p52 | just getting through it

OK, so the last two weeks haven't exactly been all that inspiring. I feel like all I've done is going through the motions ... getting up in the morning, going to work, coming home, doing the must dos and then collapsing on the sofa, feeling completely drained. So with that in mind, I can honestly say that my picture taking hasn't been so very inspiring either.

I think I have shared pictures before from the park right next to my workplace? Here are two weeks' worth of park photos. I've taken short walks during my lunch break, on days when I've been able to squeeze a break in, to breathe and focus on other things than deadlines and documents. These walks, despite the weather being far from what I would want, are like little glittering gems in long days filled with stress. So even though the pictures might not be masterpieces, they still represent something worthwhile in my life.

We are slowly working our way towards spring here. It's not cold any longer but the ice in the water is trying its best to linger around. I liked the way the trees were reflected in the slightly slushy ice.

Shooting this one, I had my heart beating out of my chest. There was another goose standing next to this one, and neither of them took a liking to me. The geese in the parks are quite agressive and have been known to attack people walking by. So sitting down right next to them was a bit of a chance taking on my part and I was fully ready to run for my life. It all ended well, though, as I knew when it was time to slowly back away and leave them alone. LOL, who said city life isn't dangerous?
