Make Way for Ducklings!

Today I found this adoreable Easter card at Books-A-Million.  My family used to keep ducks as pets.  I love ducklings and I love hyacinths, so this was a winning combination!

Sort of related to the decline of unique human experiences, I had a similiar vision for a photograph in 1989.  My execution, however, left a little bit to be desired.  I went to all the trouble to drape a sheet in the background and to place a bunch of picked (aka wilted) flowers around the duck.  But alas, I didn’t bother with trivial stuff such as lighting, focus and, you know, centering the subject in the frame (This was at least three years before my high photography class).

That Easter Card brought along some more positive memories than my photographic shortcomings.  I’ve been thinking about cute little baby ducks all day and feeling nostalgic of Easters past.  Here are a couple of shots from Easter 1989. 

Look at those faces!!! Top that, Easter Bunny!
