On the Way to Staples - Reflections


LOOK WHAT I FOUND.... on the way to Staples to buy a new KINDLE... Reflections in a retention pond.


I pulled behind the shopping center to see what was in the retention pond. YIKES. they posted a tow away sign.. I parked anyway and left my door open for a quick getaway and walked to the NEW Wall of Bamboo they planted trying to ruin my view.
I peered through the bamboo below and saw the above



 I told Bob I climbed through a spot like the one above to get these shots, he said you do know there could be gators in there. NOW he tells me.


UPDATE.. until we were driving to the gym this morning, we both forgot today is our 28th Anniversary.
SOOOO Happy Anniversary to US

Late Happy Anniversary Wishes!!!

Mmmmmm, do you possibly think that bamboo fence was put up there, to deter wandering gators? And not just to deter you, getting pretty photos????????????????????????????

Happy Anniversary! Don't feel bad. Walter and I have forgotten ours several times.

We remember when the kids call to tell us Happy Anniversary. I know of at least 5 times this has happened.

Your shots are lovely as they always are and I am so excited you got a new Kindle.

I would just like to have a Kindle. But, I want a new stronger lens first!

I hope you guys enjoy your anniversary now that you have remembered!

Hugs! :-)

Haha. Definitely a sign that you've been married a long time. :-) Happy anniversary to you two!!

Gators, huh? Yikes. Then again, alligator tail tastes pretty good - like chicken. I'm not sure what Sandra would taste like to a gator. lol

Michaele said...

I am wondering what reminded you : )
Happy Anniversary!!
What I love most about great water reflections is that you know the wind wasn't blowing. Nice shots.

Rose said...

Happy Anniversary!!!

How come the new kindle...are you getting the Paperwhite? I am having a hard time resisting it.

SquirrelQueen said...

Happy Anniversary you two!
The drive to your Staples is certainly prettier than the drive to the one here. A new Kindle? That first one got you hooked huh? I almost bought one this week while Amazon had them on sale.

EM Illustrator said...

I love these reflections! Happy anniversary to you two :)

Linda said...

Happy anniversary! That's an interestingly long walkway bridge. I love bridges over water and the reflections are just lovely. Those bamboos are going to grow fast....
