Dramatic images, Jean. Are all those sunbathers in chairs out there in October?! We are having a very wet October - no lawnchairs in sight for weeks.

Jean said...

Yesterday! Cherishing the lingering Autumn sunshine.

spooky, somehow.

hey, what happened to the pudding?

I like how the shadows and light play out in black in white in that second shot especially.

Jean said...

Dale, I guess I'm trying to set slightly higher standards of something - not sure what - now I've put my name on it, and on reflection...

Is that Hyde Park? I've only been to London once, about this time of year in 1985. It was unusually warm and sunny, they said. I remember the sling chairs we sat in in the park, sipping tea.

Oh, I just clicked on the one with the people - amazing when seen full size! These are beautiful, Jean.

Jean said...

Leslee it's Green Park. That's the name. It stretches from Piccadilly to Buckingham Palace.

Timeless, in black and white, could be yesterday or seventy years ago.

...except when you enlarge them, which I just did, the clothes of the people sitting on the grass are contemporary. I love the autumn light making shadow paly of the forms in the deckchairs.
