A very nice cloudy sky, Jeff. :)

I'll contribute with the bubbles from a small waterfall ...and the tomato plant that I allowed to grow from an accidental seed that had taken root in one of the flower pots. All in 2010.

Excellent shot of the tomatoes. But now I have a question. Why "tomato by accident" for a caption?

It's a near miss. Early morning light with a big lens resting on the railing of a boardwalk (600mm f4.0).
It's just sharp enough on the head to forgive the blur in the body. I like to think it is painterly.

Hi, Jeff; :)

Let's first remember ahead that they do say that 'there are no accidents but only fate'. :D

It's sort of accidental because it was not planned by me. I never meant to grow any tomatoes that season. Apparently the seed came with the potting soil I got for some tulips and the tomato seed took to roots under the tulips. When the tulip withered the tomato seedling came into view and I just let it have its own life after that. Basically it took over the balcony estate and became a giant crawler and bore tomato fruits! :D

The Blue Heron looks very good, JBTaylor. :)
I love how the bird and its actions are fully mirrored on the stagnant water surface.

Thanks for sharing,

On 22 December 2009, apparently, I shared this photo with the forum to wish Happy Holidays.
It was originally taken on 04 December 2009 at 22:00 hrs.

A bit on the darker side but with benevolent intentions... :)
