Halifax Public Gardens


Halifax, Nova Scotia

T

The goose.  

He was behind a wire enclosure by this waterway.
People were sitting on a bench in front of him, 
walking past and stopping for a quick visit,
talking to him,
and he just sat there.

Big and fat, (notice he only approved the head shots)
old looking,
bored silly.

I happened along with my camera,
and as soon as he saw me aiming it in his direction,
he got right up and posed,
to the left, to the right, looking up, looking down,
'here I am when I want to look demure',
'this is me when I want it to look like I'm paying attention'...
His many admirers were in stitches
by the time our 'photo shoot' concluded.

He was.....






wait for it.....






a silly goose.
