This shot was taken with my son’s point and shoot Nikon. It was a very hot central Texas summer day. Our time there was winding down. I took the kids out early to a small playground and park on Fort Hood behind one of the on-post churches. It was a lovely garden with a pond and waterfall, until I noticed the rats running around. Nice way to kill the moment. I tried to enjoy the scenery regardless, but I have to admit I was a bit creped out. This was a straight shot in front of the pond with the water lilies and rocks. It is an ok shot, nothing fantastic.
