The Big Picture.....


Sometimes when things seem to be moving along way too fast, it's good to take a time out and just chill with a friend and contemplate the big picture, I can't be certain what these two were thinking about (well I can if what they say is true haha!) but whatever, they were enjoying a companionable time together... Thank you so much for all the birthday wishes for Aimee yesterday, she had a brilliant day surrounded by aunties, uncles, cousins and babies...Aimee as a pirate captain is a hard act to follow, I'm not sure if these shots are going to cut it, but *French shrug* what can you do.....! I see on the news that the weather in the northern hemisphere is horrendously cold, a very frightening situation. My heart breaks for the homeless and can only hope that somehow they are being cared for at times like this, realistically knowing that there will be lost souls out there with no one. One thing is for sure, no matter how hot it is here I will never complain about the weather again!! I hope that your weekend is going well.....

  3. My girls are in Perth for an extended weekend, Grace. One of Kirsten's aunts is turning 60 ... big knees up there, too.

  4. What terrific captures, Grace! I do love those big waves breaking on the beach and those guys do look like they are enjoying themselves!! Hope your weekend is going well! Enjoy!

  5. It's very cold in Europe and especially in Russia, but balmy for the season on this side of the Atlantic. I admire these two gentlemen. I do not do nothing well. There will be a chance to improve my idleness skills in a setting like this next month. We'll see how it goes.

  6. I could sit on a beach and just look at the sea for hours and fishing gives you a reason to be doing it! Nice one Grace. It is pretty warm here for Feb. +4C and no snow at all - balmy!

  7. Love this post. Your image is wonderful Grace. We have been surprised by a mild Winter here, Winter nevertheless.

  8. I'm not much a fisherman but, I do recall one day when a friend and I took our books and spread a blanket on the beach and read for one or two hours. I loved the sound of the waves crashing on the beach. It was wonderful relaxation.

  9. I really could use a day like that for that matter I could use a vacation.

  11. Haven't been fishing for many, many years because the only thing i ever catch is a cold and i find fishing boring :-).

  12. These young fellows don't look like they are interested in working very hard. Catching fish might not be that important.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Ah, yes. Sometimes you just have to stop and smell the roses, hang on, the sea air? Is it fish I smell?
    Lovely shots, Grace!

  14. The sea! The sea! I wanna be by the sea!

  17. I'd like to be there...
    perhaps a book instead of the fisherman tool (I don't know how it is called...sorry)
    enjoy the Sunday, ciao

  18. Nice picture, but when I see those men fishing I am always wandering why on earth they do like it. I can't imagine myself sitting there and looking at one point for hours. Men are sometimes weird...

  19. Fishin! One of my 'mysteries of life'... just don't get it.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Oh I am in need of a day or two like this, wonderful!

    ReplyDelete
  21. That's bliss I say!

    Snow here at last, yay, another form of bliss (though I'm trying to not think of getting to work tomorrow!!!)

  22. Life is beach, Grace. Thanks for sharing yours.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I think these guys are the same all around the world. I usually see their local counterparts fishing in our harbor...

    ReplyDelete
  24. It looks as though catching a fish would be an unwelcome and unnecessary intrusion into their peaceful day. Nice picture.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Not my cup of tea but the top shot is great!

    ReplyDelete
  26. A terrific way to spend part of a day. You caught a wonderful "slice of life" photo.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Did you think you'd hear them better the farther away you got? ;-))

    I can remember doing exactly that - fishing on a beach. It was great fun at the time, but I wouldn't do it anymore. I have photos to take! :-)

    Re your comment about the weather: No, it's not cold here. We're in central Florida so it gets colder than south Florida (which is subtropical) but today it's sunny and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. It will be in the 80s all week. At night it goes down into the 50s so it's just about perfect!

    Enjoy the warmth before climate change changes everything and the cold moves your way!

  28. It must be very relaxing, I have to try too!!
    P. S. Go from my blog that there is a prize for you

  29. I like the beach but I don't like fishing. What would I do if I caught one? I suppose I would have to take it off the hook. Aaaaggghh.

  30. je veux bien un peu de détente à regarder la mer
    par contre je ne pêche pas

    ReplyDelete
  31. A la belle saison, il y a des pêcheurs, ici, au bord de la mer. Mais, en ce moment, ils gèleraient sur place. Le froid est terrible.
    Bonne fin de journée!

  32. These guys have chilling out down to a fine art :-)
