A place in the sun

When you're on a golden sea
You don't need no memory
Just a place to call your own
As we drift into the zone

Nice soothing moment to share in the winter of Life, summer of time. Here we use (and break) so many umbrellas because of the rain it's always so amusing to see people use them against the sun we're starving for ;) I like the quiet moment captured with a lot of natural & simplicity here ~

A nice place for a break... but the man with the umbrella... he takes care of him, but the wife is right in the sun... not very gentlemanly... :-)

@Evelyne Dubos: who knows, maybe it's the wife's request :)

Having seen this picture, it made me think of the question, "Do I really wanna grow, grumpy, fragile, old?" I think to myself, I don't really mind if I don't. More or less, I think I know what could kill me. Pardon the cynic thinking, I guess it's just me being realistic. This is not to say I'm ready to die anytime, or that I'd like to. On the other hand, if ever I do die old and grumpy and fragile, I guess I'll just find a place with beautiful light; a quiet escape. Something that I could look at through the window when I'm lying in bed, about to give my last bit of air, and then smile. Really thought provoking photo Shoti. Nice!
