First of all if you want to join Sky Watch Friday, see Tom at Wigger's World. It is a lot of fun to see all the pictures...sometimes I get to feeling like a recording because there are just so many beautiful pictures. I notice I start to avoid leaving comments because I feel like I am repeating myself. When I start to do that, it is time for me to walk away for a while and come back to it later. I think I would still feel the need to try to view them all, even if I didn't post a single picture.

Anyway, does anyone ever look through their lens and it totally out of focus and you like it anyway. Well, here is a couple versions of one out of focus shot, taken off my front porch this morn. I cannot get it to look like the view through my out of focus lens still, but I sort of like it. The darker one is what came off my camera without anything being done to it in photo software. The other is just adding fill flash.
And below are in-focus shots. I have been trying to get in the habit of walking, but on my way to the park, I ran by the river to see what the sunrise was doing there. I cannot pick a favorite so am posting more than one...I hope you don't mind. It is sort of strange seeing the Wabash river calm enough to have reflections in it, as well as being within the banks. It has been flooded for a lot of the spring. It is kind of nice to be seeing things get back to normal.
