Images Seventeen and Eighteen of 52

“Those who wish to pet and baby wild animals “love” them. But those who respect their natures and wish to let them live normal lives, love them more.”

― Edwin Way Teale

When I read the challenge for week seventeen with the 52 Frames project was soft, I started brainstorming soft things that I might photograph.

It didn’t take me long to remember my husband telling me of the goslings that recently hatched near his office.  I thought they would make the perfect subject for soft.


Once I started going to the office to photograph the goslings, I couldn’t get enough.  I went back several days in the late afternoon since the light was so amazing.

The following week, the challenge was low key.  I decided to visit the goslings again to create a low key image using the late afternoon light.

I enjoyed every minute I shared watching these baby geese.  I found that I could observe them growing up so quickly.

It was comforting to watch these goslings as they explored their new world and surroundings.
