Award Shortlist   

A nap in the sun

By niamh  
I was reluctant to upload this one as I was worried I might be accused of being unkind to the elderly.

I just thought this was quite an endearing image. Let's face it, we've all dropped off in public before and it's nothing to be embarrassed about.

Your thoughts on this will be welcomed, whatever they are.

This is the third image I've uploaded today so apologies if you commented on any of my earlier shots. One of those days.

Elderly! these folk are in their prime lass! LOL
I'm always dropping off, my husband tells me I could nap on a clothes line.
I think it's a nice little candid shot and well seen.
