One day last autumn, I was driving along and spied a small appealing lake on private property. I stopped to take some pictures, but a ditch and some scrub and some fallen branches and a rickety chain link and barbed wire fence and a tall wooden fence and some trees and lots of muck and lots of litter just wouldn't get outta my way. It was nice and peaceful and the sun was shining brightly, but I about to miss a post card picture opportunity.
I said to myself, "Self, there's just got to be a way..." Aha! "Maybe there is a way," I said. "Maybe if I stand behind the wooden fence and hold the camera above it, I might...I just might...maybe..."
So that's what I did. I stood behind the wooden fence and I shot blind. I couldn't see the lake at all. With my arms stretched up over my head and my nose just inches from the fence boards, I took several pictures, most of which are a laugh-a-minute.
But this picture is so good! I gotta tell you I'm proud of it!
