eye candy friday -- city pond

Behind a commercial office building in the tangle of the urban jungle I call home, some kind souls had the insight and generosity to put a pond. It's about a ten minute walk from my apartment, tops, and I go there quite often. The Bubs and I used to take daily trips there. It's soothing to the point of mysticism. Cars go by. The buzz of city life surrounds it. But when you go there, sit and listen to the waterfall, watch the turtles and the fish, you forget where you are.

One of your photos could be a painting by Monet! It looks lovely and the turtle sunning himself is perfect.
