Winter's afternoon in the park


As the shadows lengthened, a nip gathered in the air, and people gathered sweaters around them. Chatting people, walking people, sipping people, running people. People in pairs, people in families, people in teams.


All readying themselves for the homeward journey and the Sunday evening roast of lamb, with baked potatoes, baked pumpkin, steamed baby peas, and slivered carrot, with a gentle spray of mint picked fresh from the window-sill.

I am glad to see these kids playing outdoors instead of being glued to a screen. Nice shots.

Everybody wants to play Soccer these days.
That bloke in the first photo is going to trip on his shoelace, if he's not careful.
Nice photos just the same.

That's Sunday lunch you described isn't it ... but I guess these days most people are too busy out and about to bother sitting down to lunch. I particularly like the action in the last shot.

Can this really be the attire of winter? These images are so tender in this light. But I'm thinking we never dress like that in winter in Vermont. Winter must be gloriously mild there.

What extraordinarily beautiful light. It's that in combination with the word (and therefore feel) of 'winter' that absolutely does it for me! Thanks
