Chillin'


I was dashing through the park late for an appointment; the sun was beating down and my face was getting redder by the minute. When I spotted this young man under the trees I was just so envious...

Really like this. You must have gotten down really low to take it I think? Is that an ashtray in the foreground - or a water sprinkler? Can't tell.

Jilly: I think the ground was on a slope and the zoom did the rest and I believe it's one of those spotlights in the foreground directed up at the tree..

Very nice; I'd like to stretch out like that . . .

JM said...

The guy looks pretty relaxed... I also love taking my shoes off! :-)

Virginia said...

DId you take your shoes off and join him?

This young man mastered the art of relaxation. We should all take time to sit back and relax, enjoy life.

Hilda said...

Sigh, I'm envious too! Wish I could do that in the middle of the day.

HOBO said...

May be he missed his appointment or it is too early to reach so why not relax
:)

Now there's a good idea! You captured the moment.

A wonderful moment of peace and relaxation. I'd like to lie down right alongside of him, but he'd probably think I'm too forward!!

I am green with envy. Wish this were me today! What a great shot!

A lesson for us all here.

Angela, how is it possible that I haven't found your blog before?
I'm inexcusable since I 've already found Jilly and her Menton Daily Photo!
Your pictures are wonderful! I so love this aerea between Nice and Menton.
I'm very busy on Friday, because of Sky Watch, but I 'll come back to visit you. And I'll register you in my favorite.
This particular picture gave me a shock! I thought it was one of my son's best friend! Since we were in July in Nice, it would have been possible. I'll post his picture (at Ventimiglia public garden) and you'll see, they are double!
Thanks for your kind comment on my blog.

I think I would have made the appointment and then headed back to find a spot near him.
