Variation On a Theme

I start with the vague idea of researching
the Parade of Painted Parasols in Kyoto...

but it is Sunday evening
and it has been a busy weekend...

Under the Birches
Edelfelt Koivujen


I decide that what I really, really want
is a pretty picture (or three...)
to look at on Monday morning...

Shallow?
Moi?

  3. ... and what is shallow about looking at and enjoying art? Sounds very cultured and sophisticated if you ask me.

  4. I am thinking about all those clothes they are wearing - at the beach.

  5. If that's shallow then I'm happy to join you in the shallow life...

  6. If you're shallow, I think I must be a puddle.

    Lovely images for a grey Monday.
