Life is a Bed of... Krakow

By mrswoolybill
A bed of tulips should be quite a bit more comfortable than a bed of roses...
This gentleman was enjoying his siesta in the Planty park. His children were playing nearby. They tried very hard to get him to join in, but he was having none of it.
Now - imagine the scene when he got home afterwards.
'I'm sorry darling, I'd love to help you but I'm totally exhausted, I've been tearing round the park with them for hours...'

As usual the story that accompanies your images completes the picture.

A picture of two halfs.Two for the price of one.Both would be an image in their own right.You are being unfair about the guy tho'.He has just spent a twelve hour night shift at the sunglasses factory.Got home to earache from missus about not spending time with kids.Thought'stuff this' I'll take them to the park where I can have a kip.So lay off.Anyway,nice one Moira.

Thanks folks. But do I detect a hint of defensiveness from some of our gents??
I couldn't get exactly the angle I wanted, by the way - I'd have preferred less of the path showing. A combination of the lie of the land and a pesky fence in the way of where I needed to be. In Poland, walking on the grass ranks somewhere between manslaughter and GBH on the criminal scale.

I like the use of portrait as opposed to landscape for this, it gives the image more depth and the tulips make a great foreground. Well taken.

It's a nice image, well spotted,

Wonderful tulips and not even in Amsterdam. Of course in May it could be Alan or Danny lying on the bench even if I have to pay them to pose!!

That "Gentleman" looks uncannily like Brannigan.
