It's Friday and it's a Fiesta !! At least it is, thanks to Candid Carrie ! :-)
Monday was a beautiful day, so after visiting the DMV, we meandered down to the Truckee River.
I had fun playing with with my 35mm SLR film camera. Still trying to get the hang of it, but I thought some of the shots came out fairly well, despite me having the F-stops wrong...
But, that's all the fun of learning !!!
For most of the photos, you can get better detail if you click on the photo.
The hubby looking contemplatively at the river.
I messed around with the colour on this one, with a photo editing program and still haven't got it right ...
We stood and watched these kayaks, for ages.
Isn't the water a beautiful blue !!
It was darn cold though as it is snow melt that feeds the river. Despite that there were a couple of kids playing in the river. BRRRRRRRRRRRR !!
Looking across at the kayaks playing in the water. It was fascinating watching them flip in the white water..
This fellow was taking quiet nap in the sun.
Sadly he is one of the many homeless that we have in the area.
Many of them are mentally ill and there are not enough beds in the shelters for them. Programs that were in place to help them, have now been discontinued because of the current economic climate.
