Metson Lake in Golden Gate Park
The shot of the blue heron I was snapping right before the dog attack.
Metson Lake as pictured above, located in Golden Gate Park is a nice, quiet and peaceful spot on most days.  Today, however, I am writing this on Tuesday a vicious dog, off leash, attacked me, though not seriously then went after the blue heron.
I was intending to spend the day at my three favorite lakes in Golden Gate Park.  I first went to Metson Lake and saw this blue heron which I have seen there many times in the past.  While walking to the lake I spotted a woman with a very aggressive German shepherd around the area.  I took some shots of the blue heron then wanted to get closer so I walked around the lake, nearing his location.  While walking towards the heron, there was a guy who was nearby, meditating by the water.  As I approached the heron I saw the woman and her vicious dog round the corner and her saying " come on let's go.

Thursday Two Questions Meme #132

All of these photos were taken at ocean beach.  I was out in the area taking shots for some hublpages posts when I happened to see this guy atop that huge rock across from the Cliff House.  Now I want you to look closely at the first photo in the middle top of the rock so that you can see just how huge this rock really is in comparison to this guy standing on top of it.  He was pacing back and forth on the rock for at least ten minutes.  I began snapping shots of him because I was scared to death he would fall and at least there would be photos to identify him.  He really scared me.  I was just about to call the police when he began climbing down the rock.  This particular area is very dangerous and you are warned not to climb any cliffs or rocks out there.
There is only one person I can think of that many of you know who would do this and that is Betchai :)
My two ?'s today are:
1. Are you a daredevil?
2. Is there anything you wouldn't do?
