lens-artists challenge #57 – taking a break

“Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority,
it is time to pause and reflect.”
Mark Twain

“Reading brings us unknown friends”
Honoré de Balzac

An elegant man sending his lunch hour with a book in the beautiful Jardins do Palácio de Cristal in Porto. It was a very hot day. (June 2018)

“Sculpture occupies the same space as your body.”
Anish Kapoor

Taking a break in the standing still (living sculpture), this young lady was “working” outside Schönbrunn Palace in Vienna. I suppose even the art needs a sandwich at times (April 2018)

“Rest and be thankful.”
William Wordsworth

Girlfriends taking a break from the biking on the beach in Skanör, the most Southern part of Sweden (June 2014)

“Figure out what to do, then take a nap.”

A lunch nap on the fountain edge in Søndermarken Park, Frederiksberg – Copenhagen. (September 2015)

“Sometimes the most productive thing you can do is relax.”
Mark Black

To relax before doing the shopping is something I do at times, need to build up the strength those days. A lovely sunny September morning in Gdańsk, Poland. (September 2018)

  1. I’m sure there’s a Pass in Scotland called Rest and be Thankful, Vivi! Mick says we were there in September 1990. Just the other day 🙂 🙂 Resting between engagements with a 6 year old right now. He’s a sweetheart. Hugs, darlin! Enjoy Poland xx

    • Yes, she had the right idea … it was only 10 a’clock in the morning and her shopping trolley was empty … so she took it easy before. Thanks, Loisa! Have a relaxed Sunday.
