Wandering around one day, I noticed a few things that were lost... and found. I was hoping to see some interesting birds on this walk but as I approached a park bench from a distance I could see something perched up its seat.
It was either waiting patiently for its owner, or playfully considering a grope to an unsuspecting bottom. Come to think of it, that might be Frank's glove...
While searching for an interesting link or quote or something to do with lost gloves, I happened upon Unloved Glove - a fun little site dedicated to gloves which are lost and ultimately found by someone else. I sent the above and another image to them for their gallery and they were posted the same day. Click on Glove Gallery. Thanks Kenneth - aka Glove Guv.
The tree is more than first a seed, then a stem, then a living trunk, and then dead timber. The tree is a slow, enduring force straining to win the sky. ~Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
A tree probably lost its grip one windy day and found itself adrift in the pond. Part of it eventually made its way to the edge of the dam, just waiting to take that final plunge. You can see the water streaming past it and the slope of the dam to the right. You can also see an odd spotty pattern throughout the photo which tells you that I snapped it through a chain link fence.
Another lost article which someone lovingly wrapped around a branch. Its bright colour stood out to me against the otherwise dull landscape. I hope it doesn't belong to the same person who lost their glove. For one thing, they'd be getting pretty cold by now. But even worse - that combination of patterns and colours would be such a fashion faux pas!
This little cutie found something interesting and was in a hurry to bury it. He was tamping the ground when I snapped this image. Seconds later he ran off to find something else. I hope he doesn't lose track of his hiding place.
As an aside, I know that many of you comment about our black squirrels whenever I post a photo of one of them. Black squirrels are the exact same species as the Eastern Gray squirrel so common all over the place. There just happens to be a large number of black ones in our area. The litters are often mixed. Recently we've begun seeing increasing numbers of little Red Squirrels in our area and a few that I'm reasonably certain are the results of cross breeding with the Eastern Grays. They're awfully cute. These last three images are of something that I simply found appealing to the eye.
The sun was low and golden, and this bright red length of yarn caught my attention. It was artistically entwined around the fine branches of this young tree.
I'm not certain if it was the wind or a human hand which placed it there, but I certainly enjoyed photographing it with the marcro lens.
A gentle embrace
Thanks for losing yourself with me at the Lost and Found. I hope you found something here to enjoy.
