I had to prepare a blog on the topic black and so I decided to head on out to the Palm Beach Zoo to shoot images of the monkeys. All I can say is that the monkeys were not that co-operative. The big guy hardly moved and the others sat huddled at the top of their cage and ignored me. However, I got to walk around the zoo and experience what they had to offer. Perhaps the highlight was the mating dance of the Flamingo and the stunning display by the gorgeous peacock.

As I mentioned in my last blog, I recently flooded the house. The horror of the water quickly turned to Adrenalin as I threw towels all over the floor to try and dry up the inch deep water that was now going down the stairway. Wet towels are not fun to pick up and having picked up at least 30 and the moving furniture downstairs etc, my back has been achy. So off to the chiropractor I went. Aside from him doing his work, he wants me to walk 30 minutes a day. I can see that I am going to be opening up the treadmill again.
Friday after my visit I tried to weigh up where I would go and do my 30 minute walk. I thought of doing some street photography but that did not work out for me. So I headed back towards the wetlands. However, I have been there so often that I did not want to go there. I decided to go to the Everglades park and re-new my pass. While I was there I took a 30 minute walk along the board walk. The trees are all tall around the boardwalk, which makes it kind of dark. It was kind of lonely as very few people walk there. Everything is overgrown, and there is little critter life. However, it always surprises me what I can find in there. So join me as I walk along the boardwalk at Loxahatchee National Park.

Artists Inspired theme color for this month is Black. Black should not be hard for me, I love black, it is my favorite color. 80% of my closet is black. So why did I struggle this month.
First off, the day I was going to go and shoot my “black” theme, became Black Friday for me. I flooded the double story house by accident. Suffice to say there was a whole lot of water and it was not black. Richards mood was not black either.
Then I headed off to the zoo to see if I could photograph the black monkeys. Okay so I go to do that but truthfully that monkey was so bored that all it did was hang on a branch, and not move. Once it looked at me and as I lifted the camera, it turned away. Reminded me of Ms Moonshine at home. Each time I pick up the camera she will look away.
I was getting pretty desperate and actually took some images of Ms Moonshine simply because she is an all black cat. I had one last Friday to do this, so after a doctors visit, and then breakfast with my son, I did a de-tour to Morikami Japanese Gardens and Museum for a short walk. I am not optimistic enough to think I am going to be able to walk right around the gardens, but I manage 1/3 rd of the way before I turn around and go back. So today images come from my walk through the gardens. Come walk with me.

of the very darkest color owing to the absence of or complete absorption of light; the opposite of white.

Connection is the theme for the month of April and I looked up the definition of connection. Here it is:
~ Connection ~
a relationship in which a person, thing, or idea is linked or associated with something else.
I recently 5 days at a conference in Columbus. Georgia. On the first night we were treated to an evening performance by an orchestra and 200 person choir. The music was amazing and the choir stunning. The way they all blended was so special. What struck me with this was how the musicians connected with their instruments, how their music connected with the choir and how both connected with the audience. Their music was captivating and the soloist was just incredible. The evening truly was a treat.
