Today I'm back at Raparian Park.  Just mainly getting out to get some exercise.  I haven't hiked for awhile due to having a cold and persistent cough.  Not sure how far I'm walking --or going uphill-- today.  I've got my lunch with me, so need to find a place to sit and eat

Ah ha, another poyson
There was no one else on the boardwalk
Of course the next subjects that came towards me was a dad on a bicycle with his toddeler in the basket on the handlebars
I was too self conscious to put the camera to my eye and shoot...shoot
As  he passed I could have said, "cute", but then you never know how a parent will react to having their kid's picture taken this way
Oh well, maybe the next time I won't be so squemish

Again, waiting for a human to come along
No such luck

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx..........I passed this guy as I was walking the other wayxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx...xxBoth feet off the ground --wow, lucky shot
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxFollowing him back to this photo spot, he looked around at me
xxxxxxxxxxxtwice, as he figured I was following him.  He saw I had been walking the other way
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx...Luckily, he didn't turn around again, and I got my shot

I raised the camera high over my head
