Mid-Day Messaging.

By lifesnapper  
Hi all and a very BIG thank you for your kind comments and votes on my previous upload, especially to Carole (monochrome 2004) for her much appreciated award and excellent mod. Thanks Carole.Smile

Today's images were taken in a cafe' bar in Afitos overlooking the beach and Aegean sea. A nice place to chill out and catch up with the rest of the world and then ignore it.

So, where's this heat wave we've been promised? The past week has been nothing but dark clouds, strong wind and below average temperatures. It's been really miserable for going out and doing anything here in the Medway area of Kent. I watch the weather forecast and wonder where on earth they're getting it from? Hardly seen the sun and certainly not felt it for ages. Today is overcast yet again but at least the wind doesn't seem as strong. I might get up and open a window. Forget what I said, the wind is back.

All the best to all,

Well, just to make your day even more overcast, we had 25c yesterday, clear skies, and it is meant to be even hotter today.Tongue
Speaking of hot, your model doesn't exactly make things any cooler...Wink

Great moment captured John. I'm in my shorts, not a pretty sight, and it's sunny and warm.

She's Just texting the folks back home, to let them know it's warm and sunny where she is.
The weather's already decided about the UK leaving Europe. They're having a heatwave,
we're having wind and rain. Brexit and climate change, what next i wonder. SmileSmile
Your, rather lovely, subject looks and dresses just like my sister. I had to look several
times to make sure. She's recently been to Greece on holiday, so it could have been....

Two very good photos John. I like both the color and the mono version!
Good work!

If I'd known she looked like your sister Dave, I would've asked If she had a brother called, Dave.Smile
Another very well spotted opportunity your subject is blissfully unaware she has been captured itís a great
Image too compositionally wise .

Today few can last without knowing what is happening everywhere!
Used to go on holiday an the world could be at war and you wouldn't know.

Too right, Kate!
Great duo John, where would we be without the invisible air waves - maybe in a better space in some ways 🙂. She seems to be enjoying herself, perhaps texting home saying Ďitís sunny here!í 🙂
