Skywatch Friday – Spider Island

Spider Island - Oxley Nature Center

I had a few hours to myself last week so I went to Oxley Nature Center north of Tulsa’s airport. I only found one cache but the enjoyment is mainly in the looking. I walked up to one of the lakes and too this shot. If it looks familiar it is because it is taken from near where my blog header shot is taken. I’ve probably got two dozen pics of the same scene over the years, summer, winter, fall, spring, cloudy, clear, cold, hot, with Heather and Logan, mostly without. If there is a law against repeat photographs then I’m in for a long sentence.

I’ll have plenty of company though if I’m sent off to blogger jail. The bloggers I regularly read do similar things. A pretty or attractive scene tends to stay that way. What about you, do you repeat yourself a lot? Going back to the same scene I mean.

    I try not to repeat, but sometimes you need an old photo to illustrate one’s point!
    My readers like before and afters, too!
    I keep finding new critters, too. I spotted a 5″ leech at the pond. I have to post that video shortly, although some will be grossed out!

    Hello, it is a pretty view and sky. I would think there may be small differences, like the sky and clouds. We often visit the same park over and over if it is one we really enjoy. Have a happy weekend!

    Nothing more natural than to return to the beautiful, familiar or striking for more inspiration.
    I did much the same this week even though I have started to blog with a new page I returned to a well loved locale today.

    I am guilty of the same thing. I go back to the same spot over, and over, yet, over again. Lovely post this week. Keep going back! Keep shooting. It is our passion after all.

    same spots change over seasons, time of day… so repeating is not necessarily repeating. one gets different results. great place and great shot.

    With a gorgeous scene like this I’d be taking photos in all seasons too. Guess I do that at the canyon. See you in blogger photo jail.
