cool colors


a cool haiku

napping in the shade
on a sultry summer day
trying to stay cool

Today's Featured Photograph from the Mortal Muses Flickr pool was submitted by kellysoji.  Like mine, it demonstrates a very colorful way to stay cool and caught my eye immediately.  I love bright color!

In Florida, there always seems to be an abundance of bold colors - gorgeous aqua skies, red sunsets, fuchsia bougainvillea, multi-colored Key West style homes, and even my own beloved periwinkle blue picnic table.  These luxurious hues draw me in, like a moth to a flame. So every day, I wander with a camera in hand trying to capture these colors, and in a way - my own personality, in the people and world around me... Vibrant.  Intense.  Animated.  Dynamic.  Spirited.  Heart on my sleeve.  It is who I am. It is how I see the world. I wouldn't have it any other way.

when i think of perfect days on the beach it always includes the light flapping noise of a beach umbrella in the breeze. very nice "staying cool" captures!

As I've told you before, when I come visit I will expect to have that hammock all to myself. Those umbrellas are a perfect companion. Oh for some sun so I could sit under one!
