It was gray and dreary outside, drizzling rain. I needed a photo for my 365 project. I didn't have an idea in mind when I left the house but found myself moving in the direction of the lake. There are two swallows' nests nestled in the cover of my neighbor's boat lift. Perhaps I would find my image there.
A flock of geese were floating just off shore enjoying the summer shower. It was then that I noticed the pair, separated from the rest of the flock, lagging behind the crowd. Staying close. Sharing secrets. Each aware only of the other.
The beauty of a 365 Project is my self imposed rule to shoot one photograph every day. Had I not needed an image for today I would have stayed warm and dry indoors and missed this pair of love birds.
