PreScript. OK I’m being a bit sneaky! The Daily Prompt today on 14 January 2014 is ….you guessed it for photographers to show ‘ONE’…so re-sharing??! (can you even do that??!) this ONE photograph again while I go rooting in my shoebox for another …well…ONE!
See what I found in my shoebox here.
From ‘Community’ for last week’s challenge to ‘One’ for this week, what a 180 degree turn around! Some of last week’s beautiful shots of nature photography were at the back of my mind as I contemplated which photograph to upload. Ultimately I chose this shot for the simple message that it seems to convey (at least to me!) …..that of being ‘ONE’ with our own self.
As the pace of our day to day existence increases, we take less time to spend with our own self. The job, the spouse, the kids, the extended family, the friend circle, the local charity group, everyone, everything wants a slice of our time. But unless we are at peace within, all other aspects of our life will get less than what they deserve.
So lets take time out, like our winged friend here in this click, to reflect, to reconnect and to become ONE with our inner selves. Peace out for now…
PS. This shot was taken at Lake Nakuru, Kenya last winter. It is a beautiful national park with some amazing migratory birds besides the pink Flamingos that throng the lake in peak season. On my list of places to visit again, and this time during peak migration 🙂 You can find more entries to this week’s challenge here.

Thank you for the suggestion. I will surely do so.

Love the clarity of the reflection, well captured 🙂
Thank you so much! A hit and miss with my efforts always….sometimes it’s a hit! Plus the circumstances of the shot helped…the water was calm, the duck was placid and the natural lighting was good 😀
But some of the biggest things is actually being there, having a camera with you and then having the skill to take advantage of the circumstances that present themselves – again well done
*feeling pleased* Thanks!
I just love that shot! The reflexion is beautiful.

Lovey photo and reflection. It’s very peaceful.
Thank you Janet…the sense of calm is indeed what drew me to this little guy just floating away peacefully.

Beautiful in the water!
If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.
Till one blogger yet lives to post, fear not this shall never come to pass!
What a beautiful shot! The reflection of the duck is amazing! I would say you took a wonderful picture! Thanks so much for sharing!
Thanks! I got lucky….the more shots I take, the luckier I get…I guess 😀
