More Rowers on the Arkansas River

Arkansas River Rowers Header

I’m cheating today. My post is a photograph that is also my new header photo. I captured it last Tuesday during my weekly after work run. Unlike most photographs I haven’t done anything to it besides cropping. I’m afraid to mess with it. I love the light and shadows on the bridge and the reflection of columns in the water and the different textures of the water. Sometimes it is best to live things alone.

We had a terrible tragedy last week here in Tulsa. A black man, Terence Crutcher was shot and killed by a Tulsa police officer. The whole thing sucks. Crutcher was killed for no good reason and the police officer by all accounts was competent. So now she is charged with manslaughter and Crutcher is dead. Things are kind of chill right now but there is a lot of tension in the air.  And on social media the idiots on both sides are taunting and insulting each other. Oh bother.

So what is up where you live?

    Your photograph is perfect. I especially like the light reflecting off the bridge. The whole Tulsa shooting mess is a tragedy–I don’t know what the answer is and you’re right, there are a lot of idiots on Facebook.

    Nice photo, Yogi!

    The incident in Tulsa was tragic. My nephew was a police officer for many years until he was terribly injured making an arrest and had to be put on disability. Being a police person is a very hard and dangerous job–one I would not want to have. They have to make split second life or death decisions. That said, I think it is horrible that a unarmed man was killed. I wish there was another way to subdue a supposed perpetrator besides shooting to kill them. Hopefully lessons will be learned from this sad incident
