Gone fishing

I saw this little girl fishing in my pond (it's actually the community pond, but I pretend it is mine ;-). Very patient...very still.

"There is certainly something in fishing that tends to produce a gentleness of spirit, a pure serenity of mind." --Washington Irving

The little girl doesn't look real - that part of the photo looks like a painting.

Serenity for sure.
Have a great Thursday!

A beautiful and colorful photograph. If I lived there I would be concerned for the small child's welfare. Is there any chance of an alligator in the lake? Wow. It would bother me.

Jilly said...

Beautiful pond - looks like a small lake to me!

Isabella, what is that tree that has a few fronds hanging down with a white flower and pea-like pods? Fascinating.

Kate said...

Your quote fits the photo beautifully. Well-chosen, Isabella--both photo and Mr. Irving.

For a little moment, this pond is our pond too...When I was a little girl, i liked to fish (in the sea), it was easy to catch some beautiful fishs kind enough to swallow my poor worm on a rusty hook...I am not sure it could work today...

Lori said...

Monica said...

ps

I just sent a private email to you -- check it hasn't been diverted to a spam folder!

isabella said...

Thanks Gerald - will do!

Jilly - that's a wild tamarind tree. Those small while flowers are very sweet smelling...

Alice - today's fish are more spoiled and clever, they would never fall for a rusty hook ;-)

Abe - there's always a chance for an alligator, but this pond is on a golfcourse and they don't like to hang out with the golfers ;-)

Thanks for the ice-cream, Rauf!!! It is very hot here today...

Composition is great here with these flowers in the foreground and is the final touch.

Nathalie said...

Never managed to fish - can't stay still for 2 minutes!

Victoria said...

Beautiful spot to go fishing. I must say that I'm a bit jealous, I haven't been fishing yet this spring!

I also just noticed that small lawn chair nest to the little girl; how adorable!

Stunning. Florida at it's beautiful best. The little girl in there fishing is the perfect touch.

Chandlermom said...

beautiful colors!

tfangel said...

Like others have said, i just can't look at water in Florida without wondering if there are gators in there. Hope she is okay.

RamblingRound said...

Looks like a painting almost. So beautiful. That little girl is making precious memories.

Dsole said...

Isabella! It's like some cartoon! gorgeous!

NDS said...

Paradise, that's what it looks like to me. The little girl just makes the photo. Great catch!

Chris & Deb said...
