Vacation images - towel on a lounge

Wherever I am, I'm always subconsciously looking for things that interest me. While swimming with the kids, I took a fancy to the yellow-webbed lounge chairs arrayed haphazardly around the deck. In and of themselves, they weren't that compelling. I took an unadorned picture of a few of them, and got the scrunched brow response from my wife.

But when one of our towels was draped over the back, the whole color-line-geometry impression was too good to ignore. I love how this picture makes me feel, and how it takes me right back to the pool, with our kids' voices playing in my head.

Thank you for sharing all your pitcures and stories of you and your lovely family. I plan to travel to Florida later this month, and reading your stories and seeing your pictures is helping me to "pre-thaw" myself!

Thanks to you all for your bright and sunny comments.

Joan: bright colors have always made me happy. Color has more impact on our mood than we care to admit.

Diva Drip: I'm glad I could help! I can't wait to see your pictures from your trip. You have such a unique view of the world!

Mellie Helen: Simple compositions always seem to have the most punch. I don't know why this is the case, but big and bold kind of sticks in the head better.
