Catching up with the past. Reviewing photos from a trip I made almost five years ago, I found this nugget.
While walking through Hyde Park in London, there were many sights to behold.

-And then this scene
A young lady was feeding a patient and somewhat tame Canadian Goose. The mother, sans shoes, was standing strongly behind the girl. Her handbag and shoes hint as their social status. The girl’s hat adds a bit of flair to her otherwise plain dress.
It could be any date, any year, and in any part of the world (almost).
While looking for a new Windows 8.1 lock screen image, I stumbled upon this photo–which I captured in January of 2012. I have to admit that I’m somewhat partial–but I much prefer this black and white photo to the loud splash of color that is the default lock screen image.
While I’m on the topic of Windows 8.1, I must say that it seems like a solid operating system crippled by a horrible and assuming interface. That’s why I set up a dual-boot system with Ubuntu 14.04 LTS–a much cleaner interface and, while it’s not a perfect operating system, it’s pretty good in terms of stability and features. If you are looking for a free operating system (and a free office experience), then Ubuntu is pretty good. Expect a learning curve and some interface with the command prompt.
In other words, with free comes the price of a challenge. =)
Back to the photo: the day was filled with low clouds and river fog. The fog stuck to the fjord and the water like glue. It seemed to ebb and flow with the tidal river. The breeze would lick as the fog and create interesting effects as it contradicted the flow of the water. This is one of many images that I captured that day. More to come, perhaps, if I can process them.
