A place where nobody goes outside


Who sits here?
Pompano Beach, FL, December 2011
About this photo: Thematic is glowing this week. You can glow, too, by following your mouse here.
Oversized balconies overlooking the pounding surf as the sun begins its daily climb above the horizon. Not a soul to be seen aside from the occasional runner dodging the last gasp of each wave before it crashes for good against the slick sand. I look up and wonder why more people who stay here don't grab a mug of something comforting and head outside to take in the view. Because I think I'd have a permanent outdoor spot for my own mug of something comforting if I lived in this phenomenal place.

For now, I'll have to be content with the way the early morning light plays on the concrete. The sun really does paint differently down here. Pity no one else is outside to notice.

Your turn: Are you an outside or an inside person?

Outside first! It is a lovely place. My nephew grew up there, with his dad, while his Mom lived just south of Fort Lauderdale in Dania Beach. Funny Graeme,(Floridian child) today craves more the wind, the snow and the highest mountain he can climb. Today, more people will hide inside again today, as our artic blast has now begun to add that white fluffy stuff....winter as of this week has finally arrived! :)

That’s an unusual shot; it took me a few seconds t realise what it was. Perhaps, if it was later in the day, the shot would have been marred by lots of bodies on the balcony.
