I obviously was there and recall the situation when I snapped this shot…a beautiful Summer’s day coming to an end…at a festive event. Warmth was in the air, the trees offered a welcome respite from the heat…a positive recollection.

Now, years later, I can imagine the image eliciting varied emotions…some good, some bittersweet, suggestive of melancholia. Or, thoughts of begging the warmth and sun to remain as we (I) set off into Fall/Winter and many months of gray and rain. I prefer to bathe in the positive warmth right now. No need to rush cabin fever.
