Alice takes a Sunday Snooze

I had quite a few people comment on the last photo that I posted on Monday so today I thought I'd show a few more of the photos that I took of the her dozing in the park. She was quite captivating and posed for me (unintentionally and unawares) quite beautifully over the space of about 5 minutes. I'm naming her Alice, because she somehow reminded me a little of Alice from Alice in Wonderland. And the weather on Sunday was very Alice in Wonderland like with a cool-ish breeze and warming sun.

The last is my absolute favourite of all four photos. There's something about the light, the green of the grass and the way her limbs drape over each other. What do you think?

And I'm linking up to Lisa's Creative Exchange again this week, two weeks in a row. It's almost a record!

These are great little observations. I love green urban spaces and seeing this and your last post makes me want to take a book and a blanket and head outside!

Definitely agree with you here Clare, the last one is really special. Everything just "comes together" in that photograph to make it truly beautiful.

Thank you so much for sharing these wonderful photographs at The Creative Exchange.

Have a wonderful day!

Hugs to you.

Beautiful! I love that last one most as well. Because of what you mentioned along with the book. Not much more beautiful than a person reading.

Clare, these photos are lovely -- especially the last. Somehow you feel totally lost in the book with her.

that last photo is definitely my favourite. it's so simple and intimate.

(and i know what you mean about that photo looking like a bushfire. The trees look like gum trees but the photo was actually taken in the Netherlands not that far from Amsterdam!)

Gorgeous, Clare! The last photo is so well composed!
