How I spent Saturday afternoon

I visited the local pool for my daughter's twelfth birthday.



A far cry from my own a few years back, which was themed to "The Man from UNCLE."



Anyway I've always found the pool environs rather photogenic.



Alternately placid and chaotic.

The beauty of inflections
Or the beauty of innuendos,
The blackbird whistling
Or just after.
- Wallace Stevens
