It was a cold snowy Ohio day when Phillipp’s life changed. Just out of university, he’d been drifting, not sure what to do. Lonely, broke and depressed, he made his way to a local park. Looking to be alone, he was angered to see a large gaggle of geese occupying the pond. He didn’t care too much for geese. They were big dumb bruits with a funny accent. Leaving, not paying attention, he bumped into her, his future. His future was named Priscilla and she was beautiful. As the snow fell about them, their eyes slowly met and everything finally made sense. Even today, after twenty-five ducklings and years of bliss, he still blushes at the thought of her.
Lovely story and photos
Ha! Screams out for another installment…
Beautiful love story….
Hi Seth, thanks for popping into my new blog – you were my first visitor!
I love the way you make the story for the ducks – we used to have a pair live in our garden – she had just one foot and he was so protective of her – just lovely to see.
These are excellent Seth!
Thanks so much. 🙂 ..
Thank you for the love story! I don’t know if you check me out regularly or not but I do write coworkers and friends’ love stories along with my own dating experiences. Sweet story and cute pictures!
Thanks. 🙂 I’ll look again at your blog.
Nothing like a good love story! Lovely!
Thx. 🙂 …
AWWWW. This was too cute and beautiful!
Thanks Tasha. 🙂
Beautiful story! Well done.
Awww…how sweet. 🙂
Yes Phillip is a romantic. 🙂

Thank you. 🙂 xx
Magical meeting! Your photos always brighten my day and your captions add another dimension. Now a lovely story too!!
So sweet and lovely images.
So endearing! 🙂
Love the pictures but the story is priceless!
How sweet! You captured some lovely moments here. The little flurries of snow make it just that much more perfect.
Such a great love story. But it seems that Phillip may have a bit of competition if he doesn’t attend faithfully to Priscilla.
Nah. That’s her brother Johan
Some of my relatives and friends are avid duck hunters. Personally, I think that they are far too intelligent and awesome to terminate.
I personally don’t understand the urge to kill anything(except spiders) but I get that it’s some sort of primal need for some. It does help with overcrowding. And is needed. I just don’t understand the joy of doing it.
forever together!!! just love ducks!
Have a great week!
Thx you too.
Gorgeous duckies 🙂
Yes they are. Thanks Jennifer.

Thanks. 🙂 x
such a cute story, and absolutely beautiful pictures!!!
Thanks so much. 1228. 🙂
“Look behind you” and “The meeting”, have an unreal quality that remind me of watercolor paintings–very complimentary to the subject matter and there is also an added dreaminess that contributes to the romantic story of Phillipp and Pricilla 🙂
Thx… 🙂 X
Very sweet. I love this 🙂
Why thanks. 🙂
Hi, Seth. I have noticed you’ve liked a few of my posts, so I finally sat down, caught my breath, and visited others who offer descriptions of life’s moments either with words, photos or both. I am glad I visited and am now a follower. You have some great photos. Having spent some time in Cincinnati, some posts are reminiscent for me. I’d be interested to learn about your methods of photography – cameras you prefer, settings, things you’ve learned along the way in capturing your memories. Thanks again and keep up the good work. Amy
Amy, thanks so much for your comments.
I’m not sure if I commented on this….I just really read it. The pictires are always great. The piece as a whole is just very enjoyable 🙂
I love this story, Seth. There is a great little twist at the end and the photos enhance it so much.
oooh! So cute. When I saw these pictures I got the Ugly Ducky tale…
Yes, great children’s story. 🙂 If people would only apply it to real life. 🙂
Stunning duck pics!!
Quack you. 😉
