Searching For My Love

WARNING! This post is graphic intensive.

I’ve finished my project for The Scent of Water photo
swap and mailed it to Christine of Mumblings of the Incoherent blog. “Reflections” is this month’s theme.



This is my submission, Mallards in the pond at Tucson’s Agua Caliente Park.



I printed the photo on a card so I could write a note to Christine.



After playing around with my camera, I decided to include an additional picture and framed both in magnetic frames so she can replace the pictures at will. She may not like rubber ducks.

I started thinking about other ways to play with the reflections concept and came out with this wacky activity to occupy myself. It’s a little pictorial story set to music about the two rubber ducks (Mr. Lonely and Baby) floating about in my pool. I couldn’t resist having fun with yet another example of reflections.



Bobby Moore & The Rhythm Aces’ 1966 song Searching for My Love popped in my head—also a type of reflection. It’s about a guy (Mr. Lonely) searching for his lost love (Baby) and reflecting on his actions in causing this loss.

Activate the music and then pretend the following lyrics and pictures are a little video correlating to it.

True love found!

P.S. No rubber duckies were harmed in the making of this example of my incipient insanity.

Oh, my gosh! I snorted my coffee when I laughed. What a
great way to start the morning, laughing out loud all by myself. So sweet...but you do have your whacky side!;-) It's appealing.

Oh goodie... I found someone who's as goofy as me... YOU!! That was a hoot, Junie Moon! Your creativity shines in so many ways.

The photo for this month is great. And I'm certain she'll love the south end of the duckies going north too.

What are you going to do today with your creative time??

Oh I love love love your photos and little/long story.....
How cute are those rubber duckies.
I love their hats and I'm so jealous that you are in your pool, I want SUMMER back. I hate winter and it is fast approaching here.

June, this is playful indeed. THere are several here I really like. I'm sure your partner is sure to enjoy them. I've taken my photos for reflection but with being out of town so much have not yet had them reproduced so that is 'job one' this week. I will be sending two, though I had several I could have sent. I really like this sense of play in the pool.
