Koi pond at the Belle Isle conservatory (and another blogger)



Here are two shots from the Koi pond at the Belle Isle Conservatory. Belle Isle is part of Detroit. The first shot I took on Saturday while visiting with another blogger. The difference between this meeting and the one I had with B-squared in Harbor Springs is that I knew this blogger before we started blogging. B-squared was new to me. The second picture was taken by Erin at Random Snaps of BB and me at the koi pond. I'm including it because someone complained that I didn't show pictures of B-Squared and myself when we met in Harbor Springs. I do not show pictures of other bloggers without their permission. We were not dressed to be put on display, LOL! Not this time or last!

I've had out-of-town company so I'm behind on my blogging and commenting, but will try to catch up soon.

Yesterday, I briefly met another previously UNKNOWN blogger and will meet again and post pix sometimes soon! (It was V, a local artist, and her husband.)

The top picture was taken with a little point and shoot and it was darkish and I didn't even get it quite straight. I used that instead of my "real cameras" because I had long lenses on and didn't want to change them (sensor spots!)(AK!)

Thanks so much Chriss, alterdom, Vogon Poet, and Goda for you visit and kind comments.

Goda, I have three int his picture, one small one in my pocket--you can see the string.

Now you know what I meanw hen I say , "I only had my point and shoot with me."

More gorgeous views of a place I would not think of as "Detroit." Looks like you're loaded for bear with all those cameras! I do the same thing sometimes, though usually I have film loaded in one of them.

You appear to be heavily armed for "point and shoot" expeditions!

This Lady needs a soundtrack for her life:

Thanks, Jacob and V! Ha ha, funny music and effects, V!!

It's to celebrate the Lady's big (point and shoot) guns she's carrying in this photo.
