Rainbow deception,

like a fleeting illusion.

Looking through wrong lens.

While there were puddles of water around us on this walk, most of them were frozen in fantastical patterns. As we moved by this one, we could detect a rainbow shimmer. When I took my photos and reviewed them on camera, the rainbow was missing. Then, the lightbulb went on……we were looking through our polarized sunglass lenses. We removed them and sure enough, the rainbow was gone.

Hmmm, how to capture the effect? I took off my Clips sunglasses and held them in front of the camera lens. But, the duh moments did not stop there. I began looking around through my glasses to make sure I was capturing the rainbow and could not find it.

Duh. I tried again through the camera and there it was. Guess, sometimes, we only see what we want to see. Cheers

After working for 43+ years (38 years 7 months with my last company), I finally got that promotion I waited my entire career for……retirement. I have been exploring this new career for the past 3+ years and while it is not always exciting, the chance to do what I want for myself and my family instead of what my company wanted me to do has been rewarding. While I still miss the social aspect of working with a team of great people, I have managed to keep in touch with many from my former team and I have many friends and family members who now fulfill this part of my life. Now that my Patty has retired, we are able to spend more time in pursuits and with people who are near and dear to us. I enjoy photography, gardening, working with my hands, walking, cycling, skiing, travelling, reading and creating special photo and video productions obtained in my first pastime. I may not become wealthy in any of these pursuits, but I already feel I am rich in life experiences far beyond any expectation.

  1. When water freezes it becomes beautiful in a whole new way. The formation of frozen water causes unique patterns, bubbles, jagged lines, and snowflakes to become encased in the ice, suspended beneath the surface, like a decorative piece of artwork. Thanks for sharing and have a nice day 🙂 Aiva xxx
