Hi, everybody, and a very pleasant good evening to you, wherever you may be...
I am The Mad Macedonian! Writer, Blogger, Poet, Humorist, Cyclist, Walker, Photographer, Cat Lover, Genealogist, and more!
It's day 10 of the 2011 Sit Spot Challenge, and I'm getting close to nature in middle of Huntington Beach, right in the heart of Orange County.
If you missed the start of this adventure, then check out this post, and follow the link at the end.
What day of the week will you seemingly find more people with cameras, than are being walked by their Dog, at Central Park in Huntington Beach? Sunday.
It was a humdinger of a squirrelly Sunday morning. ;-D
When I arrived at my Sit Spot, around 10am, the stage, and seats, of the amphitheatre had been overrun by people weilding cameras.
A photography class was obviously underway...Apparently in Vietnamese.
Well, hell, how does that help ME, if I had wanted to listen in for a minute, or 2? ;-D
When I went to that little spot along the dirtr trail I found, the other day, there was another group near that, also Asian, all focused on taking photos of a female model in red. ;-D
So, where was I gonna spend my 20 minutes?
Along the paved trail, to the west of the main lake, is a partially fenced in garden-like setting.
It is dense with trees, and bushes, and flowery plants, especiall of one kind, with blueish flowers.
On any other day of the week you might have the narrow path around, and thru, this small spot of solitude all to yourself, and you could sit on a rock, and contemplate your navel, world peace, how your side can win the 2012 elections, or ideas for a Cat themed book, or two, or even the next Great American Novel...but it's Sunday. ;-D
In that spot above, just moments before I took that picture, there had been a man with a camera, and a woman, with a huge, beautiful, black Dog on a leash.
In another corner was a man with a huge, $1000 camera, on a tripod, staring at a bush for God knows what reason. ;-D
In another spot were an Asian man, and woman, both with expensive cameras, staring at another bush, obviously waiting for something to appear.
What? God only knows! ;-D
