Caught in Mid Fall

"There was only one catch and that was Catch-22, which specified that a concern for one's safety in the face of dangers that were real and immediate was the process of a rational mind. Orr was crazy and could be grounded. All he had to do was ask; and as soon as he did, he would no longer be crazy and would have to fly more missions. Orr would be crazy to fly more missions and sane if he didn't, but if he was sane he had to fly them. If he flew them he was crazy and didn't have to; but if he didn't want to he was sane and had to. Yossarian was moved very deeply by the absolute simplicity of this clause of Catch-22 and let out a respectful whistle.

"That's some catch, that Catch-22," he observed.

"It's the best there is," Doc Daneeka agreed."

Joseph Heller, Catch-22

There's a limited number of responses one can have, when viewing a photograph for the first time:

--"You've never done this before, have you?"
--"New Camera?'
--"Mmmmmm, yeah... s'okay."
--"Oh boy, that's just like, mmmmwow, yeah."
--"I hate it... wish I'd taken it."

This idyllic scene fits into that last category, except... I don't actually hate it, John. I want it. The only thing I wish (besides having taken it) is that it was a full landscape ratio. Otherwise, 5 stars, Grade A, "I hate it". S&F

Picture a VW Beetle floating here in a National Lampoon ad & the title reads:

If Ted Kennedy drove a Volkswagen, he'd be President today.

Volkswagen sued the Lampoon and won, but it was still funny, and spot on.

Russ, I remember that ad. And it was funny. But, maybe, only to our generation. Do the millennials know the Kennedys? As huge John, Bobby, Ted, and the beautiful wives and children were, for the past two decades, its been the Clintons, the Bushes, the Obamas, and now the Trumps.

I love this double picture. Wonderful scene, great composition. I love the narration, too. Thank you, John.

John, as 'foreigner' I had to check The Net to understand your narrative. Excellent capture (manip?) to go along with that.

The lighting and shadows work together to blend this Catch 22 photo
Shads. Or do they fight against one another trying to take over the photo. Either way, it is a beauty.

People are like cameras--sometimes they lose focus.

This created place of yours, this bit of imagination brought to life, is beautiful, John.

The reason why the sun sets in the evening is because it wants to see the sunrise in the morning. I rise in the morning because I want to see them both. RvdB

Stunning, no wait... beyond stunning, I am in awe of your talent. The light, the reflection, the colors, .... a favorite, of course, I could look at this for hours... gives one a true sense of peace and beauty. Excellent.
