A Torn Trapezoid

AT least I THINK that's what ths is.

I captured this shadow/stone/water arrangement under a small bridge that led over the Lehigh Canal in Bethlehem, PAl. It struck me as a geometric puzzle of sorts. Whatever that might be. Hell, I'm not even certain that this is a trapezoid! I failed geometry!

In the coming days, I will have a few more images that are not quite this weird, but, hopefully, a bit different from my usual offerings.
All will be interspersed (of course) with my more "standard" fare.

Finally, I want to thank you all, once again, for your continued kind comments! I apologize for not responding much on the weekends, but i really apreciate your kindness!

that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."

- My beliefs, and values, have always been strongly tied-to music, especially Jazz, and Blues.
- The following artists and lyrics seem to "sum-up" where my spirit resides:

ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"
