Hoping that you are able to look back on 2012 as a good year and wishing you a peaceful and blessed 2013!
(Swans in Schermbeck, Germany, with Secret Service duck in the background.)
Swans are a much photographed subject and thus difficult to innovate. However, I think you caught a terrific moment, making the swans almost part of an interlocking puzzle. The duck’s location is just right–it draws the eye to the tail-to-tail connection. The different shapes of the necks also help create the illusion of a “single” interlocking piece, as the eye travels from one beak tip to the other! Love it!
