It's Friday again, my friends. The weekend is on the horizon and my brain has already taken flight. Three last, totally random and unrelated thoughts before I head out for day.
First, I love serendipity. In the above photo, I noticed that how the beach umbrella perfectly matched the colours of the ocean that day. And since the ocean changes colour constantly, it was a lovely surprise. I wasn't even certain what I was seeing at first. From an angled distance I was thinking, "odd looking wave" which made me move closer and closer until I realized that it was not part of the water but instead a beach umbrella. In fact, I must apologize for the blurriness of the photo. That happens whenever I take a distance shot and then enlarge it. I took photos from afar and then as I was approaching that little bit of sand dune rise to take a closer shot, suddenly the gentleman dozing underneath the umbrella stood up! Oops. I hadn't realized that anyone was underneath. So I crept away without the photo I had really hoped for.
Second thought was these guys. I don't know if this is a great job or a terrible job. The windows they are cleaning are on condos that sit right on the beach. There is nothing between these window and the water except sand. But these guys don't get to see the water because they work back to it. It's like being a guard who stands back to the Mona Lisa in the museum all day or the police man who directs traffic around the Eiffel Tower. I wonder if the window cleaners can at least see the ocean in the window reflection? I wonder if the guard and the policeman occasionally turn around?
Lastly, I'm sure you have heard the expression, "Low Hanging fruit" meaning something that is easy to obtain with minimal effort, right? Well, this must be where that expression comes from. Literally, Low Hanging Fruit. LOLOLOLOLOL And no this isn't a "fool the eye" camera angle, that fruit is very nearly touching the tips of the grass growing beneath it.
Sorry, I get silly when I'm sleepy.
Have a wonderful weekend! My plan is to do take my own advice :)
Yup, this is me. Some people said, "Sam, you should write a Blog". "Well, there's a thought", I thought to myself. And so here it is.
