While I was strolling through the Amador’s Causeway early last Sunday, I accidentally encountered a couple of sights that caught my immediate attention. Since I was prepared with my new birthday camera, I decided to take advantage of the situation and froze the scenes in electronic pixels. This is what I saw. Here we go.
1. Naked Dark Tree With Birds in Black
Dark Inclining Tree With Birds in Black
This was the only tree growing on the Causeway and it had not leaves. Not a single one. However, it was able to attract only black birds. That reminded me of the Will Smith’s film, “Men in Black”. In this case it was “Birds in Black”. The darkness of the main characters blended in nicely with the blueness of the city’s skyline in the background.
2. Fisherman and His Catch
A grim fisherman shows the catch of the day.
During my morning walk at the Causeway I saw a man on the side of the Causeway very concentrated in fishing. His graceful movements and the way he handled the fishing rod indicated it was going to be a good fishing day. Upon my return, I asked him how many fished he had caught.
He looked at me with a grim face and stretched his left arm. There was only a small black fish—about four inches long—wiggling in his hand. Later that day, when he gathers his family to share the day’s catch, there will be more elbows on the table than fish.
3. The Blue Flight

When I heard the sound of the engines of an airplane above me, I thought it would be nice if I could capture it floating in the huge blue sphere. The plane was so small, it was almost invisible in the viewfinder of my camera. Let’s see if you can locate it in the photograph. I you do, it’s yours.
4. Flags Waving in the Wind

At the entrance of the Causeway there is a small square called, “The Ibero-American Unity Plaza.” It’s a symbolic name meaning the solidarity of the Latin-American countries together with Spain and Portugal. People in Panama call this place, “Plaza de las Banderas” (Flag’s Plaza). Somewhere within this collection of flags waving in the wind, I saw the Panama flag. I couldn’t find it in the photograph though. The first flag is from Argentina, that I know for sure.
That’s it guys. Several curious scenes that caught my eye during a refreshing and exciting day at Amador’s Causeway one bright and breezy Sunday morning. Good Day.
