Ragtag Daily Prompt: Water

College creek 3 well doneThe Royal Barge seemed to float on the water. The paddles, wrapped in gold leaf, dipped quietly into the water, pushing the vessel smoothly along its course. On board were Queen Pirouette and her three daughters with an accompanying entourage of ladies in waiting, almoners, confessors, musicians, maids, not to mention the crew. The barge was fairly stuffed with people. God forbid it should capsize!

I was born at the American Hospital in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France. I find inspiration in the lives of so many people from Joan of Arc to Oscar Wilde. While my primary avocation is photography, I also enjoy philosophy, theology and most of all, history. My beloved wife, Robin Anne Smith, who passed away in 2013 is an inspiration to me. My beloved partner, Dana is also a great support and inspiration to me. I'd be remiss if I did not mention my cats: Maxwell, Nigel, Pirouette and GarGar.
