Focus On Life 2014 : Week 35

August's Focus : Outside

Week 35 : Lazy Days of Summer

Spring is in full swing in my neck of the woods.

Warm days, cold nights and cloud bursts encouraging little green shoots to emerge from the ground and blossoms to burst from bare branches.

Promises of a hot summer to come whilst the other half of the world is enjoying the heat of the summer slowly transitioning to the glorious riot of colour that Autumn brings.

I've been chasing restful, repleneshing sleep for a while now and have not been joining in with the focus on life group as much as I'd like, but a wee burst of energy saw me take my two little imps to the lakes for a bike ride yesterday.

It was a particularly glorious day and we were treated to a lake full of beautiful model boats. Powered by the wind, they glided silently across the cold waters in a display of effortless elegance.

A timeless moment that could have just as easily taken place in any of the last four decades.



  1. The photo is indeed timeless... I just love the retro feel of the photo, it's like the Technocolor movies of the 50s/60s :)

  2. What a wonderful photo! I love how everyone is angled looking in the same direction. And the editing gives it such a sweet nostalgic feel.

  3. That's a great photo and holds the promise of coming summer for you!

  4. Love your photo editing. Gives it that summer look, hope yours is super!

  5. Lovely capture! I could sit here and watch those boats and the kiddos (big and small!) playing all day.

  6. Nice photo, always love the retro look.

    What's with all the old guy hats?? Might have to get me one :-)
