Orton effect using Picnik
This lagoon is right by lake Michigan in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. It’s large enough that people rent pedal boats to ride up and down the lagoon.

The lovely weeping willow tree,
loves to speak to me.
Whether she is sad or
happy as can be!
She loves to have company,
anytime of day.
Even if there’s really,
not that much to say.
She always keeps me cool,
when the sun shines bright.
Then she lowers her leafs,
to keep me warm at night.
She tells me of her stories,
from when she was real small.
Every time someone hugged her,
it helped her grow so tall.
She is my special willow tree,
a very true friend in deed.
We’re always there for each other,
especially when there’s a need.

I love the arts…nature…animals…
I find my peace while photographing
the beauty around me…
sunrises, sunsets, trees, flowers, animals,
the lake, architecture…
I also like to draw and back in the 80s, I loved all of the work by
Patrick Nagel, and I was doing drawings like his!!!

    “Once upon a hill we sat beneath the willow tree
    Counting all the stars and waiting for the dawn
    But that was once upon a time, now the tree is gone.”
    {Song: Once Upon a Time}
