Photo Share (T-Day)


Imagine a day in high summer.  You're walking along the shore of a big, blue lake.  The sun is shining with all its might, but the breeze off the lake keeps you cool.  So does the ice cream cone in your hand.  Yum, it's French Roast coffee flavor.  Ask yourself, does coffee flavored ice cream count as a Tea on Tuesday beverage?  Decide that it does.  You can't take a photo of the ice cream, though, because it's melting quickly in the sunshine.  You can snap a few photos of the lake though.


The lake is not quite as dramatically blue as last time you were here, back in October.  This time, the afternoon sun is casting shadows.  There is still plenty of bright blue to be seen, though, in both the sky and the water.


Your favorite photo is one of your son, framed by some flowers.  He's not facing the camera, but his body language appears peaceful and contemplative.  When you're done enjoying the lake, you can go home and read aloud the library books that he is clutching under his arm.  



What a great summer afternoon!  Hope that you enjoyed reading about it.  Did you feel like you were there with me?  :)

French roast ice cream? My favorite (and only) coffee. I'd be in heaven. Speaking of heaven, it looks like you were. What a gorgeous lake you took us to this week.

I look at a lot of photos, and I believe some of the best ones don't show the face of the subject. Sometimes you need that bit of mystery, asking what the subject was thinking about when the photo was taken. Very nicely done.

Thanks for sharing your ice cream (YES, it counts, as does the water in the lake) with us for T this week.

I don't know about the coffee, and that blue is well worth capturing!

Krisha said...

Oh, that ice cream sounds divine, drips and all!

Have a great week

I'd certainly try coffee ice cream. I love that shot of your son as well. Some of my favorites of my kids are very similar. Them in there natural state of being...not hamming it up for the camera.

Hi Denise, I think ice cream totally counts as a beverage post. I mean, hey it is afterall made from milk and ice is just water frozen, right!? Cheers.

Boy, I sure felt like I was with you, Denise! That was very well done and the photos were magnificent considering you were only using one hand! It was such a brilliant blue day!!

The only problem is that now I'm craving some coffee ice cream. Thanks a lot! Hugs, Darnell
