Green and GrowingGreen and GrowingPlant seedlings in baskets for sale, Sa Dec. Dòng Tháp, Vietnam. We got back to the hotel around 10:30 to shower and pack. At 11:15 our driver--Hue's nephew picked us up. We went to a very pleasant place for lunch. There were several little shaded platforms built out over a tiny fish pond. The food was delicious.

Motorcycle Man BWMotorcycle Man BWReflection in mirror of a man on a motorbike, Sa Dec. Dòng Tháp, Vietnam. We were up for breakfast before 7. There was a good breeze at the hotel's outside restaurant and it was 70 degrees. Minh's friend Hue joined us, and then took us to an area where flowers are grown. There were lots of people out enjoying themselves and taking photos of each other. We had barely arrived when a woman came up to me to take a selfie with me. Everyone is really friendly and happy to pose for us. Minh says the Mekong delta is known for the friendliest people in the country. I got a number of good shots, I think.

Great Egret Close-UpGreat Egret Close-UpGreat Egret (Ardea alba) with blue sky background. Key Largo, Florida, USA. I went out for a bit of exploring along the water’s edge. I watched this great egret for a while, and spent some time waiting until it moved to an area with a clear background.

Roman Bridge 1Roman Bridge 1Córdoba, Spain. It seemed that wherever I was looking I was finding photographic possibilities in this fascinating historic city. I wandered across to the other side of the river, and was intrigued by the Roman Bridge from this view.

Although it was the middle of the day and the light was strong, a time usually not best for photography, I liked the strength of the stone and the contrast of the clouds and sky.

From the Journals…More from Niagara Falls, New York, USA. March 1996

Niagara FallsNiagara FallsAmerican Falls, facing Goat Island. Niagara Falls, New York.

I was camped nearby, and spent a couple of chilly days exploring the falls. The falls are an impressive site, made more enjoyable because the weather kept away the hordes of tourists.
