Reflection on Turtle Pond, Central Park, NYC.
One of my series in “Monet Made Easy.”

Ahhh, Monet for nothing, and your clicks for free.
That is really cool. Did the photographer set up the ripples, or is that just the way it was?
Not being a big fan of puns, you did make me chuckle Bob. Thank You.
The photo is great as well, gives me a sense of life for some reason.
Hello BaldApe. I will resist punning on your moniker and merely explain that the scene is precisely as I saw it. Nothing was photoshopped in any way. Which leads me to say once again. “Ain’t nature wonderful?”
I am obsessed with taking photos of reflections. Most are not much to look at later but this one was, I think, wonderful.
It is wonderful. Do you have posters of your work, Bob?
Nope. No posters. I have a few 8×10 prints framed and hung on a wall and lots of plans to print more that never get done. Sigh.
In my original manuscript of Club George there were about 400 color photographs.
After the publisher made cuts the final “product” had 72 black and white images. The reflection shots had to be deleted because they were indecipherable without color.
Sigh 2X. In the back of my mind I had hoped that getting public exposure for this series might lead to “something” but that did not happen. Sigh 3X.
