Monday Morning Reflections


Empty Benches, Everyone's Working in Their Offices

I was wandering the streets of Madison, camera in hand looking for a subject to photograph, when I saw a woman watching me from a window on an upper floor of an office building. It was Monday morning, the first Monday in May, and spring had finally popped. The splendor of a sunny day and the trees all in blossom surrounded me.

I wondered if she was just day dreaming or if she was wishing she could trade places.


Office Plaza Sculpture

Then I noticed this piece of public art in the plaza. The knots reminded me of the way I would get tied up in knots when I was working an inside job and had a deadline approaching. Not one bit sorry I carry a camera now, and not a briefcase full of papers.

    Amazing how the ‘little’ things can remind us how lucky we are.

    I wonder if that woman was one of the marching dudes without the balloon.
