Tina’s theme for Lens-Artists Challenge #36 is: Around the Neighborhood
Laguna Lake is within walking distance in our neighborhood. The word Laguna means lake in Spanish, so that makes “Laguna Lake” redundant, but it is known as Laguna Lake for many years. It’s about half a mile from our home on a hilly area. We sometimes walked up the hill to the lake and sometimes drove there if we started late in the afternoon. It’s 0.77 miles around the lake. My husband likes to run around the lake three times while I walk one or two times depending on how often I stop to take photos. The lake area is part of the cycling and horse trail that extends to different part of the city.

“Slow is my choice of today’s photo Challenge……due to my holidays, you have three weeks to publish your responses. The deadline is 9 August.” – Paula Borkovic
The tranquility of serene water and quiet neighborhood at Laguna Lake
Slow trotting for the horse’s exercising
This family is in no hurry, fishing and enjoying the togetherness
Time is frozen for this slow in motion turtle
Paula at Lost in Translation: Thursday’s Special – Slow
Key West, Florida is the southernmost point in the continent of USA. We had a chance to visit and it turned out to be a trip that enhanced our knowledge and insight.
This is the picture of Ernest Hemingway’s fishing boat named Pilar. Hemingway regularly fished off the boat in the waters of Key West, Florida. Several of Hemingway’s books were influenced by time spent on the boat, most notably, The Old Man and the Sea and Islands in the Stream.
The winter White House of President Harry S. Truman. It was his white house away from the White House. Today it is a public Key West museum.
Successful fishing trip! Many birds around were waiting for the scraps from cleaning the fish.
Roosters were roaming on the walls and sidewalks. Iguanas and human shared the same right crossing the street.
Wreck Museum displayed all the treasure found from the shipwreck. There was a Tower Cam on the top deck of the museum. My husband stood in front the Tower Cam and called his friend in California. His friend logged on the website, saw him on live-camera and conversed on the phone!
The sunset was beautiful (appeared in previous post).
Blue lake filled with fish, ducks, and creatures.
Adults and kids gather together.
Pouches full of gears,
Wires, hooks, and rods.
Swirling the rhythmic swing,
Into the water they Plop.
Then wait, wait, wait.
Catching fish or not,
It doesn’t seem to matter.
What a peaceful pastime,
Soak in the fresh air, rest and ponder.
