Dressed for the occasion

Dressed for the occasion

"If you can spend a perfectly useless afternoon in a perfectly useless manner, you have learned how to live." - Lin Yutang
Today, the weather was fair though the breeze hinted at the chill of days to come and we made the best of that extra one hour we gained: we spent it doing (what we love the most)........nothing :)

Great Pic. You may also give it a title 'Yin and Yang' or 'Romeo & Juliet' .. on those lines :-)

Love the simplicity of this shot Moi. Very interesting and artistic.

that's a lovely quote. see that you have thought over how to capture the leaves.

Lori said...

What a vibrant shot. I love how your photos show the beautiful details in everything. The texture of the leaves against the blue sky is so striking. Lovely!

Hilary said...

It's amazing how much more vibrant colours appear when you place them against their contrasting colour. Beautiful!

Kerri said...

I know I've said it before, but you have a gift! I love the angle, and the contrasting colors. Beautiful!

What a fabulous quote, Moi. I'll have to remember that one! And a lovely image to accompany it!

Yay leaf! :)

Stunning simplicity here, and perfect with the quote.

I do love doing nothing, and I need it this weekend. After a warm week, I'm ready to head into the wintry weather ahead!
