“To photograph is to hold one’s breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It’s at that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy.”

Guest Commentary; The Bean tells a Story

Hi everyone. My Noni asked me to tell this story about our trip to the Martinez Marina. She said that you should start at the top left corner of each piture and go around like a clock goes.
When we first got to the lake where the birds and ducks were Noni was glad that Mommy gave me boots to wear because it was muddy all over. I loved walking in the mud even though Noni kept telling me to be careful that I didn't slip and fall.
Then we saw a whole bunch of birds . I chased them. They all flew up in the air and over the top of us. I laughed.
I ran over to the ducks but they went swimming. I found feathers and little rocks.

I drawed a picture in the sand and then I ran as fast as I could. I found a red twig and showed it to Noni. We took a hike to the river and Noni kept saying "Slow down." I ran in 5 puddles.
I fed the birds with chips that Mommy gave me and I made friends with a white Seagull. He wasn't afraid like the other birds. He would wait for me to throw a chip and then he came up really close to me. He was a handsome seagull.
I played on the swings and then I spinned on the thing that went around when Noni pushed it. I held on real tight. It made me giggle.

This was a good place. Noni and I had fun and we will come back when it's warmer. It was verwy cold.
We went and ate a Happy Meal at Mc Donalds and I got a special horse that lights up. It is an Avatar. It has six legs. It is a very handsome horse.

Merry Christmas, The Bean

Dear Bean, What a great day you had with Noni! I am an old lady just like Noni, but we knew each other when we were little, like you are now. We played together and I still remember how much fun it was to stomp in puddles and go exploring. Maybe someday Noni will take you down to "our" creek, if it's still there, and show you where she used to catch polliwogs. ~ D

What a wonderful story, little Bean!! It sounds like you had a wonderful day and even though you didn't say so, I suspect your Noni had a lovely day as well! I'm pretty sure that spending the day with you had a lot to do with it!

I love watching seagulls myself, as they always look so neat and tidy, don't thy?

Merry Christmas to you, and to your entire family!
xoxo
